In a recent addition to the DraftKings Sportsbook, bettors can now bet on which team Justin Fields will play for in the 2024-25 NFL season. The Chicago Bears have the No. 1 pick, and there's belief the Bears will select Caleb Williams with that pick.

Are the Chicago Bears going to roll with Justin Fields, or is his journey in Chicago all but over?

Will the Chicago Bears keep Justin Fields, or do they reset the QB rookie contract?

Could the Chicago Bears trade Justin Fields, or is Ryan Poles willing to build around Fields for another draft? Fields' rookie contract is coming up, so after this season, the Chicago Bears would have to pay up to keep the former No. 11 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Since being drafted, Justin Fields has been an up-and-down quarterback for the Bears. Sometimes, he looks like an incredibly capable dual-threat quarterback. Other times, however, it's uncertain what he's seeing on the field. The inconsistencies in his game are what makes this a tough decision for the Chicago Bears.

Throughout Fields' time with the Chicago Bears, it's been up and down, but given the position Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears are in, it might be time to go another direction at quarterback. The NFL is a business, and when you can get someone who could be better and likely won't be worse for a fraction of the price, it's hard to pass up.

That said, if Ryan Poles believes he can build a better team for the Chicago Bears around Justin Fields than he could draft a quarterback with the No. 1 pick, then the choice is to keep Justin Fields.

The NFL Draft is still a couple of months away, but the Chicago Bears will need to make a decision soon as to what they want to do with Justin Fields.
