PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking for a quarterback this offseason, and Justin Fields could be climbing up their list. According to NFL insider Benjamin Allbright, Pittsburgh is expected to call the Chicago Bears for their former first-round pick.
Allbright says the Steelers are one of three teams he expects to call Chicago for Fields. ESPN's Adam Schefter also noted head coach Mike Tomlin is a big fan of Fields, and that Pittsburgh is going to look for outside options to bring in.
That's one of 3 teams i expect to inquire https://t.co/oZXqSmb3XC— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) February 13, 2024
Fields's trade value has bounced all over the place. Initially, it was a second or third-round pick. Now, it's expected to be a first-rounder. But if only three teams are calling, Pittsburgh may be able to lower the price and stay competitive to acquire the quarterback.
The Steelers aren't expected to retain Mason Rudolph, leaving them searching for another veteran to bring in as competition with Kenny Pickett. If Fields is available, he's entering his fifth-year option and could come to Pittsburgh looking to earn his place as the team's next long-term starter.
