Steelers adjusting QB Justin Fields mechanics

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the most discussed quarterback battles around the NFL taking place between Russell Wilson and Justin Fields.

Pittsburgh brought both quarterbacks into the fold in March. The Steelers signed Wilson on the first day of free agency, and traded for Fields shortly after trading away Kenny Pickett.

While Fields is incredibly dynamic, there were obviously reasons the Bears were willing to move on from him and select Caleb Williams. Pittsburgh is leaving no stone unturned, though, when it comes to helping Fields reach his potential and get everything back on track- one of those things is his mechanics, as Derrick Bell of Steelers Now pointed out.

“Over the years, Fields has changed his right foot forward stance to allow him to stagger on it a bit to fit with the timing of most NFL concepts,” Bell wrote. “With the Steelers, Fields is back to all of his natural mechanics and honing in more on processing quickly within the pocket. Pittsburgh’s aim is to unlock Justin Fields’ processing speed within the pocket to cut down on negative plays. In order to do that, they feel he has to be as comfortable as possible in his mechanical adjustments. So, expect to see Fields reverting back to much of what makes him comfortable on the field in an aim to grow his game under comfortable circumstances.”

We know Fields has a cannon, but the little mechanical tweaks will help him become a more consistent, refined passer.
