Justin Fields

Justin Fields expresses confidence in GM Ryan Poles ahead of critical Bears offseason

Despite finishing the 2022 NFL season with a 3-14 record, optimism around the Chicago Bears remains. There’s good reason for it, too.

First, the Bears have Justin Fields at quarterback. He’s one of the NFL’s brightest young superstars at the game’s most critical position. He proved in 2022 that as long as he’s healthy, the Bears have a chance to win. Remarkably, he proved that with a roster that requires upgrades at nearly every position.

Second, Chicago will enter 2023’s free agency period with the most money to spend. General manager Ryan Poles will have little competition in bidding wars and can sign whoever he sets his heart on.

Finally, the Bears hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. It’s the golden ticket for any offseason, especially when the club that owns it already has its franchise quarterback in place. Chicago will get better on draft weekend, and it will be because of whatever haul Poles gets back in a blockbuster trade.
