Steelers Trade Bears for Justin Fields

The Pittsburgh Steelers are making another quarterback trade.

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are adding to their quarterback room, trading with the Chicago Bears for passer Justin Fields, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

The Steelers are sending a sixth-round pick that could turn into a fourth-round pick, depending on playing time, in exchange for the former first-round quarterback. This comes on the heals of Kenny Pickett being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. 

The Steelers will now add a young QB alongside Russell Wilson as they prepare for the summer. Fields still has one year left on his rookie deal but the team could pick up his fifth-year option before May 2. If they choose to, they'll be holding onto Fields for at least two seasons. 

Pittsburgh's QB room is now Wilson and Fields. They typically carry three quarterbacks on their roster during the season, and have said throughout the offseason that they plan to again this year. 

Fields is 10-28 all-time as a starter, throwing for 6,674 yards and 40 touchdowns, while also throwing 30 interceptions. He's rushed for 2,220 yards and 14 touchdowns.
