After Russell Wilson was shockingly benched by the Denver Broncos, the team will likely be in the market for a new signal-caller in 2024. Sean Payton is unlikely to sit back and hope a QB falls to his team at No. 12 and could instead decide to be aggressive.
Payton should be interested in Justin Fields. Fields is one of the best dual-threat options at QB and raises the team's floor in 2024. Payton is widely considered to be one of the top offensive minds in the game and could do wonders for the development of Fields. This move may be the best-case scenario for both the Broncos and Fields.
In this scenario, the Bears get a third first-round selection plus an additional third-rounder. The Broncos get Fields and two mid-round selections.
