Following their previous blockbuster trade, the Chicago Bears have executed another major deal, this time involving a quarterback.

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport’s report on Saturday, citing sources, the Pittsburgh Steelers are acquiring quarterback Justin Fields from the Bears via trade.

In exchange for Fields, Rapoport added that the Bears will receive a 2025 conditional sixth-round pick from the Steelers, which could potentially become a 2025 fourth-round selection. The teams have since confirmed the trade, pending Fields passing a physical examination.

“We have engaged in multiple trade conversations in recent weeks and believe trading Justin at this time to Pittsburgh is what is best for both Justin and the Bears,” Chicago general manager Ryan Poles said in a team statement. “Today we spoke to Justin to inform him of the trade and the rationale behind it for us as a Club. We want to thank him for his tireless dedication, leadership and all he poured into our franchise and community the last three years and wish him the best towards a long and successful NFL career.”

At 25 years old, Fields posted career-best numbers in passing yards (2,562), touchdowns (16), and completion percentage (61.4%) during his 13 starts in the 2023 season. The dynamic quarterback also contributed 657 yards and four touchdowns on the ground during his third campaign in the Windy City.

Since being selected 11th overall in the 2021 draft, Fields has accumulated a 10-28 record as a starting quarterback. He departs Chicago having thrown for 6,674 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 30 interceptions, while adding 2,220 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground.

With Fields moving on to his next chapter, most indications suggest that Caleb Williams is the frontrunner to be selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft in April.
