If Fields crashes and burns next season, is trying to get a blue chip edge or DL really the highest priority at that point? Presumably, all the holes on the offense were plugged the year before (ie: this year), so, in my opinion, the Bears scrape together whatever it takes to move up and get their next QB with everything else on offense in place. Hopefully, with the 2024 draft picks they get trading out of #1 this year, that wont’t be such a heavy lift next year.
however, I’m firmly of the belief that the Bears finally have their long sought after franchise QB, so I don’t see that scenario playing out. (Fingers and toes crossed ;-) And they’ll be using those picks for their next HOF QB sacker!
