General manager Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears have been busy putting out a serious pro-Justin Fields public relations campaign following the 2022 NFL Draft. Poles spoke on two radio shows this Friday where he reiterated the Bears’ belief that Poles and the team are behind the young quarterback as the future of the franchise.
Ryan Poles on @ESPN1000 on Justin Fields: “We’re all in on Justin. I believe in Justin. Our coaches believe in Justin.
Like I said from the beginning, we’re going to set him up to succeed.”

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles said on @mullyhaugh that his level of belief in QB Justin Fields is “sky high.”
Poles said that Fields is locked in and is the first one in and last one out at Halas Hall.

This comes following the draft where many analysts and Bears fans criticized Poles for waiting until the 3rd round to pick up Fields help on offense via a wide receiver. The wide receiver room is still without a clear number one player heading into the camp season.
The Bears hope that Velus Jones Jr. will be able to grow into a solid starter for Fields. He will add speed in tandem with Bears vet Darnell Mooney and Byron Pringle, brought in this free agency from the Kansas City Chiefs. Fields welcomed the rookie Jones to Halas Hall this Thursday.
Fields will still need a lot of help from players around him to be successful in 2022. But it’s nice to see the Bears’ front office publicly say they stand behind the player and are going to set him up for success. Poles said in press conferences that he still intends to explore options at the wide receiver and offensive line position in free agency or by trades.
