Chicago Bears Rumors: QB Linked to Atlanta Falcons

There have been rumblings that the Chicago Bears could be in for a major change at the quarterback position. They reportedly have their eyes on Bryce Young at this year's draft, and it could lead them to trade fellow young QB Justin Fields because of it. As a result, one team who is reportedly expressing interest in Fields is the Atlanta Falcons.

It is clear that the Falcons are aiming to be better in 2023, but they will need to add a high-impact quarterback to their group if they want to have any chance of that occurring. Due to this, hearing that Fields is in fact on their radar makes a plethora of sense, as he has the potential to be a star in this league as he continues to gain more experience. 

Fields made 15 starts this past season with the Bears, where he threw 17 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and 2,242 yards. With that, he had a 3-12 record, so it was not the greatest of sophomore seasons for him. Yet, perhaps a change of scenery could help him take that next step, so we will need to wait and see if he becomes a Falcon from here.
