REPORT: Former Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields Named One Of Steelers Biggest ‘Losers’ At OTAs

Former Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is reportedly well behind Russell Wilson on the Pittsburgh Steelers depth chart following OTAs. The Steelers gave up a conditional sixth-round pick for Fields that can turn into a fourth-round pick if Fields plays in 51 percent of the Steelers’ snaps.

After the spring, it’s looking like the Bears will recoup the late Day 3 pick. Fields was named one of the Steelers’ “losers” after a mandatory minicamp by a Steelers insider.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he was giving Wilson the pole position at the QB1 job to start the offseason. Per Mark Kaboly with The Athletic, Wilson had a strong spring during his first offseason with the Steelers:

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a decision to make at QB next year

The Steelers have Wilson on the veteran minimum contract for one season and might move on from the All-Pro in free agency next year. The Steelers trade for Fields gave the team options for the next offseason. If Fields learns from Wilson and improves his skills during the season, he’s in line to become the starter in 2025.

For Fields to become a starter in Pittsburgh, he’ll have to clean up the issues that made the Bears move on from him this offseason. Per Kaboly, Fields was one of the Steelers’ “losers” during OTAs because he didn’t clean up several issues that haunted his time in Chicago.

Fields was a one-read wonder at practice:

Fields rehab is going to take a while. His best chance to get on the field this season is if Wilson suffers an injury. (With the way the Steelers offensive line played last season and is developing in practice, there is a good possibility Fields will get playing time this season because of an injury.)

It’s probably in Fields’ best interest to sit for the entire season and work on perfecting his quarterbacking skills. If so, he could be one of the biggest offseason winners next year.
