REPORT: Bears Are Far From Sold On Justin Fields & May Look To Replace Him Soon

According to a prominent NFL insider, the Chicago Bears front office is growing increasingly skeptical about the potential of Justin Fields as their long-term franchise quarterback.

After his extremely shaky start to the season, questions are surrounding Fields and his ability to be a starting quarterback at the NFL level.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Bears have yet to commit to Fields as “their quarterback of the future.” He further emphasized that Fields “has a ways to go” in convincing the organization of his capabilities.

Glazer shed light on Fields’ challenging past few weeks with the coaching staff, stating: “Right now, the jury’s still out whether he’s their quarterback of the future. And he had a little bumpy ride this week with their coaches.”


“The Chicago Bears still need to see more from Justin Fields to believe he’s their quarterback of the future,” Glazer concluded.

Fields, a 2021 first-round pick, was acquired by the Bears via a trade with the New York Giants. The trade involved relinquishing the Bears 2022 first-round draft pick as part of the deal.

Unfortunately, Fields’ performance has yet to meet the high expectations set by the organization.

As of now, Fields holds a horrific 5-23 career record as a starter. He has struggled mightily with his processing of defenses and has a poor career completion percentage of just 59.5%. He has thrown 27 touchdowns against 25 interceptions. 

The 2024 NFL Draft is expected to be one of the best quarterback classes in recent memory.

USC’s Caleb Williams, North Carolina’s Drake Maye, Texas’ Quinn Ewers, Washington’s Michael Penix Jr., and Notre Dame’s Sam Hartman all expected to be available, just to name a few.

Are you a believer in Fields?

Or have you seen enough to be convinced that he’s just not franchise-quarterback material?

It’s quite a mess in Chicago … What do you think the Bears should do?
