Homecoming for Justin Fields?

As the draft process unfolds, speculation mounts that the Chicago Bears may be eyeing USC quarterback Caleb Williams with their pick. This raises the intriguing question: what fate awaits Justin Fields? 

Recent social media activity has sparked intrigue, with reports suggesting that Fields has unfollowed the Bears and begun following members of the Atlanta Falcons. Could this signal a homecoming for Fields?

When you look at Justin Fields, one could argue that with each year of his career, he has shown promise to be a top tier NFL level quarterback. Although throwing for 2,562 yards in 2023, along with 16 touchdowns and 9 interceptions, doesn’t put together the most impressive resume. Especially when you add in the fact that the Bears went 7-10 this past season. Nonetheless, there are still surely teams that may be interested in testing the waters with Fields under center, especially for the right price.

Turning to the Falcons, if they find themselves priced out of the top quarterback prospects and remain unconvinced by other options, Fields emerges as an appealing alternative. Atlanta boasts a roster complete with capable playmakers, a supporting cast Fields has yet to enjoy in his career.

Furthermore, selecting Fields affords the Falcons the luxury of addressing defensive needs with their 8th overall pick, potentially landing a top defensive prospect. This two-pronged approach could significantly bolster Atlanta’s competitiveness.

Considering the potential synergy between Fields and the Falcons, the idea of giving him a chance at the helm for at least a season appears increasingly enticing. It presents an opportunity for both player and team to capitalize on untapped potential and chart a course toward success.
