Justin Fields rumours: 5 trades Bears could make and take No. 1 Bryce Young
5. The Raiders could trade Justin Fields if the veteran market dries up.
With the decision to part ways with Derek Carr, the Raiders are looking for a quarterback. Las Vegas has already been talked about as a potential destination for Tom Brady. Additionally, the franchise’s trade for Davante Adams last season led to speculation that silver and black could be the new colors for Aaron Rodgers as well.
That said, Brady and Rodgers are both nearing the end of their careers and should be looking to win another Super Bowl. Las Vegas can’t offer them that right now because they have other holes to fill.
So if they were to miss their two main free agency targets, then perhaps a Fields trade would be considered. And based on previous rookie-contract quarterbacks that have been traded, as well as what Fields has shown so far, here’s what a trade to the Raiders might look like to entice the Bears to make the move.
The Bears get
2023 First Round Pick (No. 7)
2023 Third Round Pick (#71)
2023 Sixth Round Pick (#204)
The Raiders get
QB Justin Fields
2023 Seventh-Round Pick (No. 220)
Chicago would have the opportunity to select Young with the first pick and have a Top 10 pick to round out their roster, which is also true for another Top 75 pick. As for the Raiders, they get their quarterback on a contract rookie while freeing up to fill those holes and put the Ohio State product in position to succeed in terms of the roster around him.
