Justin Fields’ latest comments about the weather in Chicago certainly won’t make fans feel any better about his future in the city, especially with the recent trade rumors circulating around the Bears QB.
During a recent interview with Pardon My Take, Fields admitted that he found the notoriously brutal weather in the Windy City difficult to adjust to.
“Yes, it is very difficult to adjust to it, especially with the wind. That’s what I found out. That’s what it’s all about, is the wind,” Fields said.
“It can be cold. It can be 10 degrees. But, with no wind you’re fine. But with that 15 mile per hour wind, that 20 mile per hour wind, you can’t fight it, it’s tough. When it’s that cold, you have to bundle up. I feel way slower in that cold. It’s hard to stay warm in that weather.”
Fields’ comments about the weather come as “multiple NFL general managers” reportedly walked away from the Senior Bowl “fairly convinced” that the Bears — who own the #1 overall pick in this year’s draft — will be trading Fields in the coming months.
Should the Bears wind up dealing Fields — who showed franchise QB potential in his second season — odds are they’d select Alabama quarterback Bryce Young or Ohio State signal-caller C.J. Stroud with their #1 overall pick.
During his sophomore season with the Bears, Fields completed 60% of his passes for 2,242 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. On the ground, however, he carried the baall 160 times for 1,143 yards and eight touchdowns.
