Steelers acquire QB Justin Fields in trade with Bears

The Chicago Bears Trade Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers

The latest NFL trade news reveals that the Chicago Bears are sending quarterback Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a conditional 2025 sixth-round pick, as reported by sources to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Potential for Upgrading the Draft Pick

If Fields manages to participate in 51 percent of Pittsburgh’s snaps this season, the 2025 draft pick from the Steelers could potentially be upgraded to a fourth-rounder, according to insider sources.

Revamped Quarterback Room

In a bold move, Pittsburgh acquires Fields to join forces with quarterback Russell Wilson in their revamped quarterback room, which now features no returning players from the 2023 roster. This overhaul comes after the team traded away 2022 first-round pick Kenny Pickett to the Eagles.

Fields’ Role in Pittsburgh

Despite the quarterback shuffle, Fields is not expected to compete with Wilson for the starting position. Instead, sources reveal that Fields will have the opportunity to learn from the seasoned Super Bowl champion and nine-time Pro Bowler during his time in Pittsburgh.
