The Chicago Bears are eagerly anticipating quarterback Justin Fields’ third year in the NFL, hoping the offseason upgrades they have made on offense will set him up for a breakout campaign as a passer in 2023. As far as Fields’ future with the franchise goes, though, their next decision with him figures to be “easy.”

Sports Illustrated’s Matt Verderame recently evaluated all of the first-round selections from the 2021 draft class and made predictions for who among them — 19 of 32 — are expected to have their fifth-year options picked up when decisions are made next May. For Fields, he projects Bears general manager Ryan Poles to have an “easy decision.”
