This is the song that never ends.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is probably doing his best to keep cool and shed the anxiety, but there has to be a part of him that just wants to know.

Is he going to be traded? Is he the future in Chicago? Can we make a decision already?

If the Bears indeed plan on drafting Caleb Williams no. 1 overall, Fields is going to have a new home for 2024. So, which destinations are the most logical, and what could the Bears expect to get back in return?

Where should the Bears trade Justin Fields if they end up coming to that decision?

First of all, let's assume that a couple of teams are out of the conversation. The Washington Commanders own the no. 2 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, and while they are a quarterback-needy team, we're going to see them draft one of the top two passers available.

Secondly, the Minnesota Vikings may end up needing a quarterback if they cannot come to an agreement with Kirk Cousins. Minnesota reportedly doesn't want Cousins back on a multi-year deal, but Cousins would prefer not to play on a 1-year contract.

The problem is obvious, though. Chicago is not going to trade Fields to a division rival. Yes, the Vikings and Lions completed a big trade involving T.J. Hockenson a season ago, but the quarterback position is a much different beast.

Now, with the Commanders and Vikings out of the picture, there are five teams that seem like the most logical destinations. Let's dive in, ranking possible returns from worst to best.
