Realistic trade destinations for Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields: Houston Texans
Whether it’s talking about trading Fields or trading the no. 1 pick, we’re going to be talking about the Houston Texans all the way up until a decision is made in Chicago.
The Texans are in dire need of a quarterback. Davis Mills wasn’t cutting it, so Houston even turned to Kyle Allen in a pinch last year, before reverting back to Mills. Houston has a strong rushing attack led by last year’s rookie Dameon Pierce, who could be even more dynamic with the threat of Fields’ legs.
The Texans could offer the Bears their no. 2 pick, and from there the Bears could either draft a guy like Anderson or, again, trade back.
The Texans also have pick no. 12 in this year’s draft. In what would be a crazy scenario, the Bears might be able to flip Fields and a second or third-round pick to Houston for their no. 2 and no. 12 picks.
To bring a close to this topic, once more, let me be very, very clear: the Bears should not trade Fields. This team finally has an exciting, young, dual-threat franchise quarterback and some outlets (and even some fans) are ready to give up on him before we’ve even seen his ceiling?
That’s just plain insanity at its finest, folks. Fields should remain in Chicago.
