Bears quarterback Justin Fields has been wowing everyone around the league with his impressive play despite a lack of help around him.

Former Bears running back Tarik Cohen is among them, speaking with The 3-Point Conversion, marveling at Fields’ superstar potential while also speaking for the fans when he says the team needs to get him some help this offseason.

“I just wish they would get some more weapons around him, man,” Cohen said. “Like some big names. Either out of the draft or free agency or something. He’s a crazy talented player. My last year when I was there rehabbing I got to watch him. The throws he made in practice, he really has an arm.”

Chicago will certainly have the resources to build around Fields this offseason. That includes north of $120 million in salary cap space along with eight draft picks, including a projected top-two selection (where they can land a generational defensive talent or trade back and acquire more draft capital).

Bears GM Ryan Poles has a slew of roster needs to address this offseason, especially on offense at wide receiver and offensive line. With Fields impressing despite a solid supporting cast, imagine what he could look like with other talent in place.
