REPORT: Steelers remain interested in Bears QB Justin Fields

According to a report by Tyler Dragon of USA TODAY Sports, the Pittsburgh Steelers have not closed the book on the idea of trading for Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields.

Dragon claims that there are three teams, the Steelers, Las Vegas Raiders and Atlanta Falcons are all still showing interest in making a trade for Fields. Bears GM Ryan Poles noted at the NFL Scouting Combine if the team does trade Fields, they want to do right by him and do it before the start of free agency which is just two weeks away.

From a Steelers point of view, the biggest thing working against them is draft currency. The Falcons and Raiders both hold higher picks in the first second round of the 2024 NFL draft. This alone makes a trade more expensive for the Steelers and could force them to include additional picks.

Steelers GM Omar Khan addressed the media on Thursday and said the team has full faith in Pickett but said Pickett understands they will bring in competition for the starting job.
