Asking price for Justin Fields could be manageable for the Steelers

If the Pittsburgh Steelers are still interested in making a trade for Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields, the asking price might not be as steep as we assumed at first.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic polled eight NFL executives and coaches to get a read for just what a team like the Steelers would have to pay if they wanted to get Fields.

Here’s what Howe had to say about the potential offers:

The majority opinion is the Bears would corral a second- or third-round pick, but there was some variation in those responses. One executive said he’d be worth a second-rounder or its equivalent value in a package of a third- and fifth-round pick.

Two other executives thought the return would be a second- or third-rounder, depending where the selection is in the round. Another believed it could be a 2025 third-round pick that could become a second-rounder based on certain statistical benchmarks.

The lowest value came from a coach who would only give up a third-round pick. There was also an executive who predicted he’d net a second-rounder but admitted that would be too much for his own team to surrender.

The rub with the Steelers making any sort of trade with the Bears is the competition. Even if the Steelers wanted to trade their second-round pick to Chicago, other teams who are interested like the Last Vegas Raiders or Atlanta Falcons have higher picks in this rounds and would have more to offer. This would mean the Steelers would need to package at least an extra pick or player to sweeten the deal.
