3. The Bears Have The First Overall Pick

This is the ultimate wrench, because if the Bears hadn't fleeced the Panthers last season, they'd only be drafting 9th and replacing Fields this offseason wouldn't even be a discussion. But that's life in the NFL, and now the Bears are in the tough but envious position of being able to move on from a QB that they're unsure about before committing huge amounts of money to him for the next half-decade. That's a decision that in and of itself takes precedent over both Fields and Getsy. As dark as it sounds for Bears fans, the sad truth of it is that the fates of Fields and Getsy ultimately aren't tied together because they never needed to be. That's the power of the first overall pick.
