Justin Fields on Bears future: ‘I can’t see myself playing in another place’

The future of Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields has been up in the air over the last month or so, and we’re still waiting for an answer. But if he had his way, Fields wouldn’t want to play for any other team.

The Bears quarterback joined the St. Brown Brothers podcast, hosted by Amon-Ra St. Brown and Equanimeous St. Brown, Fields’ teammate for the last two years, to discuss a wide array of topics. Naturally, the conversation surrounding Fields’ future came up, and he opened up regarding his feelings for the Bears and the situation.

“Of course I want to stay,” Fields said. “To be honest, with all the talk, it’s hard to, I guess, kind of be in one place, but I can’t see myself playing in another place. I know how the league is; EQ was probably the same way before you left Green Bay. If it was up to me, I would want to stay in Chicago. I love the city. The city’s lit. The fans are great. It’s a business; I ain’t got no control over it.”

Fields had nothing but great things to say about the team and the city, but like every Bears fan out there, he’s tired of the constant rumors and speculation and wants to know what is going to happen. “The biggest thing with all this going on [is] I just want to it to be over,” Fields said. “Let me know if I’m getting traded [or] let me know if I’m staying.”

Judging by his comments and the tone in his voice, it sounds like Fields hasn’t been given any assurances one way or another by general manager Ryan Poles. The Bears hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, and the likely scenario is that they draft a quarterback and move on from Fields. Trade rumors have begun to swirl, and teams have reportedly inquired about his availability and potential cost.

No matter what happens, Fields still has love for the Bears and the city of Chicago. Like many fans, he just wants to know what the future holds for him.
