Falcons should speak to the Chicago Bears about a Justin Fields trade
The final team I could see considering making a move for Justin Fields is the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan Pace is a part of that organization and he could possibly help facilitate the trade. Pace was the general manager of the Chicago Bears in 2021 when they drafted Fields. Nothing against Desmond Ridder, but I think having a quarterback like Fields can help keep this team atop a somewhat weak division.
Ridder hasn't looked bad. He has two touchdowns and one interception over the first three weeks of football. And even though Fields' stats don't look as good, I think pairing him with Drake London, Kyle Pitts, and Bijan Robinson could help unlock that offense. Who are you going to contain on defense with both Fields and Robinson highly capable of running the football at an elite level?
There are two options here for the Falcons. I could see the Chicago Bears getting a second from Atlanta, just like the Commanders, but again the Bears would have to send a late-round pick back in return. Maybe, since the Falcons have eight draft picks in 2024, the Chicago Bears could get a third and a fifth or two fourth-rounders instead. Out of these three teams, the Falcons have more to work with.
That's it though Bears fans. These are the three teams that could possibly consider trading for Justin Fields. The draft capital Ryan Poles would receive is not great. I think the best option here is to let Fields play out the rest of the season and see how things shake out — good or bad. His trade value should be higher heading into the 2024 NFL Draft than it is now unless another team that is competing for the playoffs loses their starting quarterback before the trade deadline. The point is, stop calling for Tyson Bagent and trading Justin Fields at this point. That's the worst value and outcome.
