Here's yet another chapter in the Justin Fields, Chicago Bears offseason saga.
This week, there have been whispers regarding the Denver Broncos and head coach Sean Payton wanting to replace Russell Wilson with a rookie quarterback.
The problem is, Denver is picking at no. 12 overall and will be out of luck by the time they're on the board, assuming they'd like one of the top three quarterbacks in this class, Caleb Williams, Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels.
There is a belief that Payton is going to be aggressive in getting his guy right now.
How could the Bears and Justin Fields potentially give Sean Payton his quarterback while maintaining their quarterback of the future?
Let's not waste any time getting into this one, here's trade scenario number one.
This one is relatively mild. Some experts out there believe the Bears could get a pick as high as the Falcons' no. 8 selection, while others think Fields is only worth a second or third rounder alone.
Here, we'd see the Bears get a first and third rounder in exchange for Fields and two mid-round picks. If Payton believed in Fields and what the two of them could do together, this deal makes a lot of sense for both sides.
The Bears, then, would presumably draft Caleb Williams at no. 1 and then own the no. 9 and no. 12 picks as well. Think of the possibilities there. Chicago could wind up with a wide receiver like Rome Odunze and then a pass rusher like Laiatu Latu with those picks, and that's on top of landing Williams no. 1.
