-- Why the Bears Traded Justin Fields to Pittsburgh --
Sun Mar 17, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports the Chicago Bears had hoped to land a Day 2 pick in the 2024 draft for QB Justin Fields coupled with a 2025 pick that had the potential to escalate heading into the combine in Indianapolis in late February, a source with knowledge of the team's plans said. The parameters of the trade that sent former New York Jets QB Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers (a 2021 sixth-round pick plus second- and fourth-round selections in 2022) was what Chicago had hoped to model its Fields trade after. But as potential destinations quickly came off the board with QB Russell Wilson signing with Pittsburgh, QB Kirk Cousins with Atlanta and QB Baker Mayfield staying in Tampa, the Bears had to adjust the type of return they were hoping to receive. A source said that five teams in addition to Pittsburgh reached out to Chicago, and the majority of those teams had envisioned the former first-round pick in a backup role. Additionally, the Steelers had been in talks with the Bears throughout the week of free agency and reached out again after sending QB Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday. The Bears had an additional offer with stronger draft capital from a team with an established starter, per a source, but chose to send Fields to Pittsburgh with the hope of putting the 25-year-old in a position to continue his development, first as a backup to Wilson and eventually as a starter. Bears GM Ryan Poles said he wanted to "do right" by Fields, which included not keeping him on a team with a rookie and finding a spot where he could continue developing. In Pittsburgh, Fields will have that chance.
