Justin Fields Trade Rumors: Fields hates the Cold Weather | Admits he wants to play in warm weather city or a dome
Justin Fields leaving Chicago has been a hot topic lately. Yesterday, Jason LaCanfora said he talked to several GM’s at the Senior Bowl who stated that Fields could be moved. The Bears have the first pick and can pick any player in the 2023 NFL Draft they want.
Will they continue to hold onto Fields? Fields was asked by NBC Chicago about the weather in Chicago and he was brutally honest saying that would like to play in a dome or warm weather.
“I hope we get a dome. I don’t care if we’re at Soldier Field, I don’t care if we’re at Arlington Heights. I hope we get a dome,” Fields said when talking on “Pardon my Take” about the stadium situation in Chicago. Fields then explained he’s really not a fan of adjusting to the cold weather and added, “Yes, it is very difficult to adjust to it, especially with the wind. That’s what I found out. That’s what it’s all about, is the wind. It can be cold. It can be 10 degrees. But, with no wind you’re fine. But with that 15 mile per hour wind, that 20 mile per hour wind, you can’t fight it, it’s tough. When it’s that cold, you have to bundle up. I feel way slower in that cold. It’s hard to stay warm in that weather.”
I could see Fields getting dealt, but if he does get traded maybe it is a team like the Carolina Panthers. They have warm weather, and they are in need of a quarterback. If the Bears feel Bryce Young is a better quarterback why not try it?
I mean if the Bears were to trade Fields to the Panthers and acquire the 9th pick they could take a blindside protector. Imagine them walking away with Paris Johnson and Bryce Young, for Justin Fields?
It makes sense.
