BEARS TRADENEWS: Unexpected Justin Fields Trade Emerges..

Unexpected Justin Fields Trade Suitor Starting To Emerge.

The Chicago Bears seem set on the path of taking a quarterback #1 overall this April. Caleb Williams is the heavy favorite for that honor. That means GM Ryan Poles must work to find Justin Fields a new home. All signs point to the fourth-year quarterback having a healthy market of interested teams. Atlanta and Pittsburgh appear to be the early favorites to acquire his services. However, history shows there will always be one or two unexpected suitors who enter the mix. That could be happening here.

Seth Walder of ESPN listed one off-season possibility he’s hoping to happen. That is the Cleveland Browns making a run at Fields.

It sounds unbelievable at first.

Cleveland is basically stuck with Watson’s albatross of a contract. Unless they somehow find a way to trade it, they would have to bring in Fields as insurance against further health setbacks. Watson is already dealing with a shoulder issue that ended his 2023 season. However, something brewing might compel Cleveland to make the move. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk revealed it.

Justin Fields to Cleveland makes plenty of sense.

They have a ready-made roster with a good offensive line and weapons. Head coach Kevin Stefanski runs an offense similar to what Fields is familiar with from his time in Chicago. He’d have an excellent defense to lean on. Best of all, he’d be returning to the area where he turned himself into a star. Fields dominated at Ohio State for two years in college. No doubt Cleveland fans would embrace him coming home to play for their pro team. As always, the trickiest part will be the compensation.

The Browns have no 1st round pick this year. Their 2nd round pick will be on the lower side because they managed to make the playoffs. This means they would have to hope other teams don’t offer 2nd rounders because it’s a virtual certainty they would sit higher in the draft order. Cleveland would then have to package another pick to sweeten the pot. It comes down to how much they like the idea of Justin Fields. The logistics involved make this unlikely. Still, one can’t rule it out.
