Realistic trade destinations for Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields: Indianapolis Colts
From the Colts’ perspective, this is as tantalizing an opportunity as they could want. Let’s say the Bears do indeed draft Young at no. 1 overall. Then, the idea of pairing Fields with Jonathan Taylor becomes a real possibility.
Colts fans could only dream of that rushing attack, once Taylor comes back from injury. You’re talking about maybe the best pure running back in football, who also happens to be only 24 years old and on a rookie contract, paired with the soon-to-be 24-year-old Fields on a rookie deal as well.
Following the trade, Indianapolis would have to be laser-focused on building up the offensive line around Fields and in front of Taylor. That was arguably the weakest part of their offense last year, other than quarterback of course.
On the Bears’ side, they would likely get the Colts’ no. 4 pick and could end up with edge rusher Will Anderson out of Alabama. Either Anderson or Georgia’s Jalen Carter become legitimate possibilities.
Heck, even trading back once more at no. 4 could be in the cards for the Bears. The possibilities are endless when talking about Indianapolis as a trade partner.
