Bears QB Justin Fields: ‘I’m not worried about contracts, I’m worried about wins’
Bears quarterback Justin Fields is entering a pivotal third season where he’s expected to take the next step forward in his development.
But he’ll also be eligible for a contract extension after this season, meaning an impressive season could equal a big pay day and Chicago finally landing its franchise quarterback.
While Fields is aware of that, he made it clear that he’s not busying himself with thoughts about a second contract when there’s work to be done.
“I’m not worried about contracts, I’m worried about wins. I could care less,” Fields said Tuesday.
“Every year’s a big year. Yeah. I don’t really have anything to expand on that. For me, every year’s a big year and I’m excited to show it.”
After his emergence last season as a dynamic runner, the focus shifts to bettering himself as a passer. Luckily for Fields, Chicago has assembled a solid supporting cast and improved the offensive line to help him.
“It’s a great feeling,” Fields said. “The coaches trust me, I trust them. Everybody in the building knows the kind of leader and person I am. I’m just excited to be able to lead this team and to be able to reach new heights.”
