4. Chicgo Bears are now all-in on Justin Fields

Last season there were rumors that the coaching staff was not all the way in on Justin Fields. When the Chicago Bears finished with the top overall pick, those rumors continued. However, after this offseason, those rumors have been put to bed.

During his first offseason, Ryan Poles added minimal help at wide receiver, and then a bunch of day three offensive lineman.

Justin Fields started to win him over, and you could tell by the Chase Claypool trade. Poles wanted to see more instantly. Fields obviously showed enough, because the Bears could have taken Bryce Young or C.J. Stroud, and they traded down. In that trade, they added D.J. Moore, another wide out.

With the pick they traded down to, they took a right tackle to complete his offensive line. It did not stop though. Roschon Johnson and Tyler Scott quickly were in the mix on day three. With D'Onta Foreman and Travis Homer already added along with Robert Tonyan at tight end, we can officially say that Poles did enough to give Justin Fields a true corps of players.

Part of it is that Poles did not have the same assets, but the other part is that Fields played well enough in 2021 to get this commitment from their General Manager. They are all in.
