3 wildcard teams that could trade for Justin Fields after Cousins signs with Falcons

Kirk Cousins is off the market, so what does that mean for Justin Fields?

3. Seattle Seahawks

Last year, the Seahawks rewarded Geno Smith with a 3-year deal worth $75 million after his late breakout in the 2022 season. Smith proved you're never too far gone, and never too old to make something of your career in this league.

However, after this season, the Seahawks could get out of Smith's contract and save $25 million in the process. Fields to Seattle? It's not as crazy as you might think.

The "Justin Fields following DK Metcalf on Instagram" thing could be neither here nor there, as we know by now. Social media isn't as telling as we'd like to make it out to be sometimes.

But, the logic of Seattle taking a chance on Fields makes a ton of sense. He'd come cheap for the coming year, and if Geno happens to regress, then the Seahawks have an option beyond Smith in 2025. Not to mention, they could choose to use the fifth-year option on Fields for the 2025 season and give themselves another year before ultimately having to pay Fields.
