Speaking of a dual-threat quarterback who might be on the move this offseason, Chicago Bears starter Justin Fields is anything but safe. We won't stop seeing the rumors and whispers about his future in Chicago until the draft is officially over, it seems.

Fields recently came back from a thumb injury and, by all accounts, has just a few games left to prove himself worthy of staying in Chicago beyond 2023. The Bears will likely finish with the no. 1 pick in the draft for two years in a row, only this year it'll be thanks to the Carolina Panthers' pick that came to them earlier this year when the two teams made a big deal resulting in Bryce Young landing with Carolina.

Fields is a lethal runner with the ball in his hands and has made countless big plays over his three years in the league, but still needs work as a passer, specifically when it comes to holding the ball too long and throwing with anticipation. To be fair, the Bears haven't done enough to develop Fields and fans are frustrated with the offensive scheme not working around his strengths.

Should the Bears decide to move on, the Steelers could make yet another notable deal with Chicago, only this time, it might result in the team finding their quarterback of the future.
