2. Las Vegas Raiders are in dire need of some juice from their quarterback

If we are looking at a complete new start for Fields, I think it would be hard to top what could be available to him with the Las Vegas Raiders. Owner Mark Davis made sure that Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler no longer work for his team weeks ago. With a new head coach and general manager coming in, the Raiders have a chance to get better in a hurry if Davis makes the right series of hires.

While it remains to be seen if Antonio Pierce will have his interim tag removed and get the full-time gig, the Raiders are in dire need of an upgrade at quarterback anyway. Jimmy Garoppolo gets hurt all the time. Brian Hoyer is still somehow in this league as a veteran backup. Although Aidan O'Connell still has some upside as a rookie, there is a reason why he was not a first-round pick out of Purdue.

If the Raiders wanted to give their offense some much-needed juice, I would entertain the possibility of trading for Fields. It would be a deal to a team in the other league, one where neither party would have to give up as much the Carolina Panthers did to get the No. 1 pick from the Bears so they could draft Bryce Young over C.J. Stroud. Look at how well those series of moves worked out in Carolina...

The Raiders are a pretty decent landing spot for Fields, but there is one landing spot better out there.
