The upcoming NFL Scouting Combine not only provides all 32 teams with the opportunity to closely evaluate top prospects but also serves as a platform for discussions on trades and player movements. For the Chicago Bears, this event could once again see them heavily involved in trade talks, reminiscent of last season when they traded out of the No. 1 pick shortly after the Combine concluded.

While there's a possibility of the Bears trading the top pick again, it would be a bigger surprise this time with Caleb Williams emerging as a compelling prospect. However, a more plausible scenario involves the Bears exploring a trade involving their 2021 first-round pick, quarterback Justin Fields.

NFL insider Albert Breer suggests that the Bears are keen to facilitate a trade involving Fields, indicating a sense of urgency on their part to finalize a deal. With the NFL Combine scheduled to commence on February 26th, the timeline for a potential Fields trade could be imminent.

The urgency behind the Bears' decision likely stems from the evolving landscape of the quarterback market. With several QB-needy teams and the impending free agency period, which opens on March 13th, teams may opt to pursue established quarterbacks like Jimmy Garoppolo or Russell Wilson instead of investing in Fields.


Therefore, it's imperative for the Bears to identify a trade partner sooner rather than later, ensuring they capitalize on their options before they become limited due to teams addressing their quarterback needs elsewhere.
