Justin Fields goes into his first full off-season with the Chicago Bears in 2022. Fields entered last season as a young, eager player as a rookie drafted with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Now, Fields enters this 2022 season as one of the more experienced offensive players with Chicago. The Bears are also coming in with a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator and new weapons.

It has not all been easy, but Fields remains confident the growth on offense will come moving forward. He was optimistic despite a tough showing for the offense Tuesday according to Mark Potash with the Chicago Sun-Times.

“It’s gonna come,’’ Fields said when he was asked about the frustration of enduring days when the offense looks as bad as it did Tuesday. ‘‘My competitive nature — everyone on the offensive side of the ball’s competitive nature — you’re gonna want to have a successful play every play. But you also gotta know when to take your wins and losses.’’

Despite Chicago’s offense set to experience some growing pains, Fields is determined to lead an offense with many newcomers. Chicago added former Kansas City wide receiver Byron Pringle, drafted Tennessee wide receiver Velus Jones Jr., and traded New England wide receiver N’Keal Harry during the off-season.

Chicago looks to see some progress after finishing 27th in the league in points per game (18.3). Fields was 2-8 as the starting quarterback behind a struggling offense in Chicago.

With some improvement on the team, Fields feels confident in the team’s ability to contend this 2022 NFL season.
