Best: New England Patriots

It's a new era of football in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Tom Brady is now a year removed from the league and the New England Patriots have parted ways with Belichick. Jerod Mayo is taking over as they look to start anew.

The quarterback position will be changing, too. Much like the Falcons situation, having two quarterbacks means you have zero quarterbacks. As impossible as the task was, Mac Jones did not succeed as Brady's replacement. But he may not have looked good replacing anyone. And as admirable of an effort Bailey Zappe had, he didn't not answer the bell either.

The Patriots are in an interesting position. They have the 3rd overall pick in the draft, well within range of drafting a top quarterback prospect. But Fields makes a whole lot of sense for them, too. Plus, the Bears may be interested in the 3rd pick for wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., especially if they're moving on from Fields.

So, to play draft genie, The Bears trading the 9th overall pick and Fields for the 3rd and some later draft picks might be a fair trade on the table that would suit all parties involved. This might also be the best-case scenario for Chicago.
