For now, Justin Fields is still a member of the Chicago Bears. But there’s a strong chance the team could decide to trade him and select a rookie quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. If that happens, the Atlanta Falcons are speculated to be among the teams who would pursue him – and it sounds like there would be mutual interest.

During a recent appearance on the St. Brown Bros Podcast hosted by teammate Equanimeous St. Brown and Lions receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, Justin Fields opened up about the possibility of joining the Atlanta Falcons, especially considering Fields grew up in the Atlanta area.

“The only con of going back home would be people hitting my phone crazy. Wanting tickets to the game,” Fields said on the podcast according to NFL.com.

“But I think they got a lot of playmakers on the team. Of course, Bijan [Robinson]. They got my boy, Kyle [Pitts], and then, of course, Drake [London], too. They probably need one more receiver, but they’ve definitely got some guys over there. The defense was good this year, too.”

Fields made it clear that his first choice would remain with the Bears, but it sounds like he would be open to joining the Falcons, too.
