The Chicago Bears aren’t expected to begin their offseason program until early April, but that hasn’t stopped quarterback Justin Fields from training for the 2022 season.
Fields’ rookie season has been a turbulent one. While he struggled to hold the ball too long and protect it, there were flashes of potential that should excite Bears fans heading into the new season. Especially with a new regime in place.
While Fields isn’t entirely to blame for his poor rookie season, the pressure is on to step forward in Year 2 under new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, who has vowed to build the offense around him.
Something that is already evident about Fields is his dedication and willingness to put in the work. Fields shared a photo of himself training in Atlanta with the caption “back to basics”.

It’s not the first time this offseason that Fields has worked. Immediately following the 2021 season, Fields and wide receiver Darnell Mooney traveled to Florida to train together. During Super Bowl week, Fields also said he was having a practice session with teammates in Georgia.
