NFL - US Sports: Bears recruit excited by command of 'Fields general'

Chicago Bears defensive tackle Justin Jones is excited by what he has seen from Justin Fields this month and believes the second-year quarterback has developed into a "legit field general".

The Bears, 10/13 to have over 6.5 wins in the upcoming regular season, are hoping for big things from Fields in 2022 after his baptism of fire as a rookie last year.

High hopes for Fields

The former Ohio State star was handed his first start in Week 3 after Andy Dalton went down with an ankle injury, but Fields struggled to get the ball out on time - or at all - as he took nine sacks in total against the Cleveland Browns.

He showed flashes of his potential later in the season, but Chicago's front office will be hoping he takes a major performance leap in year two.

Jones excited for season ahead

Jones arrived in Chicago this offseason via a four-year stint in Los Angeles where he witnessed young Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert make a seamless switch from college football to the NFL.

"I think Justin Fields is a different quarterback from Justin Herbert. A little different player, [they're] different guys," Jones said, via Chicago Sun-Times.

"What I'll say about Justin Fields, though, is he really loves the game of football. He has a commanding leadership on the field - a legit field general. He gets guys wound up, gets guys going.

"I'm really excited about the season he's about to have. Once you've played your first year, you've seen the speed of the game; you've seen how guys are moving; how fast the window closes; you see how fast receivers get open. I'm excited. He's a lot more comfortable now."
