Reports: Steelers Show Interest In Bears Quarterback Justin Fields

According to several league sources, the Pittsburgh Steelers have expressed interest in acquiring Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields. This interest comes after the Steelers traded their young quarterback Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday and began exploring the possibility of a trade for Fields.

Sources describe the market for Fields in the NFL as ‘lukewarm,’ with the primary obstacle being the price that the Bears deem fair for Fields. Although Pittsburgh had previously discussed or shown preliminary interest in a potential trade for Fields, negotiations stalled due to the perceived high asking price.

However, despite the acquisition of Pickett, the Steelers’ interest in Fields persists. While it’s emphasized that a deal is not imminent, there is genuine interest within the Steelers organization to explore the possibility of acquiring Fields.

When questioned about the potential trade for Fields at the NFL Combine, general manager Omar Khan declined to provide specifics regarding conversations with other teams. This response was consistent with his approach to inquiries about the Steelers’ interest in other quarterbacks such as Kirk Cousins or Russell Wilson, both of whom were unavailable for trade discussions.

Fields made incremental progress in 2023, his third year as Chicago’s starting quarterback. The 24-year-old Ohio State alum completed 227 passes for 2,562 yards and 16 touchdowns out of 370 attempts. He also threw nine interceptions and maintained an 86.3 passer rating, with a 5.29 adjusted net yards per attempt.

Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Fields and the Bears (or any potential acquiring team) must decide during this offseason whether to exercise the fifth-year option on his contract. This option would entail a guaranteed $25 million contract for 2025, although negotiations for a traditional contract extension are also feasible.
