As the 2024 NFL Draft approaches just two months away on April 25, speculation and rumors are swirling about the Chicago Bears' plans for quarterback Justin Fields and the No. 1 overall pick.

Last season, despite a disappointing overall performance resulting in only three wins, the Bears opted to retain Fields due to his promising potential. However, following the 2023 campaign, where the team's win total improved marginally by four games, Fields did not demonstrate significant improvement, leading to speculation that the Bears may be considering trading him and selecting a quarterback with the top pick.

While the Bears have yet to officially announce their intentions, indications suggest they are leaning towards parting ways with Fields and drafting USC standout Caleb Williams.

According to Albert Breer of NBC Sports Boston, the Bears are expected to disclose their decision regarding Fields next week, as reported by Dov Kleiman. With several teams across the league seeking quarterback upgrades, the Bears are likely to have numerous trade suitors, potentially expediting the decision-making process.


Although the specific teams interested in acquiring Fields remain uncertain, the Bears' management is likely evaluating potential trade scenarios before reaching a final decision.

Nevertheless, given Williams' exceptional talent, it appears increasingly likely that a trade involving Fields will materialize.
