The Steelers discover the cost of trading for Justin Fields.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers have expressed a willingness to explore quarterback trades in the upcoming offseason. If their focus is on the Chicago Bears, it is likely that they are aware of the expected asking price.

Initially, it was thought that Justin Fields could be acquired for a second-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. However, with the Bears holding the first overall pick, speculation suggests they might select Caleb Williams or trade down for either Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels. This implies that Fields may not be in the Bears’ long-term plans. For potential trade suitors, including the Steelers, securing Fields could be a costly endeavor.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter, speaking on ESPN Chicago, indicated that Fields could indeed command a first-round pick in the upcoming offseason.

“I think they might get a 1,” he remarked.

With the 20th pick in the draft, the Steelers could be in a position to make a trade with Chicago. Pittsburgh recognizes the importance of obtaining quality quarterback play as their “next step.” There is optimism that Fields, a former first-round pick, could be the solution.

Alternatively, if the Steelers opt not to pursue Fields, they may consider retaining Mason Rudolph, as they have expressed interest in doing. Exploring external options and potentially acquiring Russell Wilson from the Denver Broncos through a trade are also viable alternatives for the team.
