The Chicago Bears drafted Fields with the No. 11 pick in 2021. The quarterback appeared in 40 games. The Steelers acquired Fields for a 2025 6th-round pick that can convert into a fourth-round selection based on playing time.

Two-time MVP Lamar Jackson is the only quarterback in league history besides Fields with more rushing yards in their first three seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Fields will join a quarterback group that includes Super Bowl winner Russell Wilson, who the Steelers signed earlier this week. This is the first time since 1957 that Pittsburgh has not returned any of its quarterbacks from the previous season.
