3. Justin Fields to the Commanders
"Because Ron Rivera’s throwing his quarterback under the bus anyway, let’s get him a new one. It doesn’t seem like the Bears care all that much about Fields’ development, so if the Commanders want to start from scratch and really develop a young quarterback with their impressive stable of wide receivers, why not make an offer for Fields? Not only would Fields give them an exciting quarterback prospect to divert attention away from Rivera’s recent track record of sub-mediocre defense, but he would guarantee Carson Wentz’s snap-share dipped below 70 percent, thereby turning the 2023 pick they owe the Colts from a second-rounder to a third."
Fields might not be long for Chicago, as former GM Ryan Pace drafted the then-Ohio State prospect No. 15 overall in 2021.
Pace has since been fired and replaced by Ryan Poles, as has former head coach Matt Nagy. In other words, the new regime has no ties to Fields, so they could cut bait with the 23-year-old and reset the money at the position because his development is going nowhere behind this offensive line.
The idea of the Bears moving off Fields isn’t crazy, but Washington isn’t offloading assets to acquire another QB while it still has Carson Wentz on the roster. Maybe they revisit the idea in the offseason, but for now Fields will finish out the year in the Windy City and try to make the most of his unfortunate situation.
