Justin Fields trade rumors grow as Chicago Bears QB suggests he wants to remain with the team

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields made waves recently by unfollowing the team on Instagram. It seemed to suggest that his future with the Bears is up in the air amid growing trade rumors surrounding the young quarterback.

Fields clarified his social media activity recently while also noting that he wants to remain a member of the Bears’ organization.

“If it was up to me I would stay in Chicago. I love the city. The city’s lit. The fans there, they’re great. But it’s a business. I ain’t got no control over it, so whatever happens happens,” Justin Fields said on Wednesday, via NFL.com.

Fields also indicated that his decision to unfollow Chicago on IG was more about wanting to free up his feed from football during the offseason. Take that for what it’s worth.

Meanwhile, the former Ohio State star simply wants all of the rumors surrounding a potential trade to come to an end.

“I feel like the biggest thing with all of this going on right now is I just want it to be over,” Fields said. “Just let me know if I’m going to be traded. Let me know if I’m staying.”

Per ESPN’s Courtney Cronin, several people around the NFL believe that Fields could net the Bears a second-and-fourth-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The 24-year-old signal caller has been linked to the Atlanta Falcons, Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots, among other teams.

Fields has been up-and-down throughout his career, throwing all of 40 touchdowns against 30 interceptions in 38 career starts. Chicago is set to move on from from the youngster in favor of likely No. 1 pick Caleb Williams in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The expectation is that something could come to fruition on this end during the NFL Scouting Combine starting next week.
