Justin Fields names himself a top-five running quarterback in NFL history


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears franchise running back Justin Fields has shown off his elite rushing ability last season with 1,143 yards, the second-most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season.

Over the past two NFL seasons, Fields led quarterbacks in rushing yards (1,563) and was third in rushing TDs (10).

The only person to have more rushing yards in a single season in history is Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Fields was asked recently on the "All Things Covered" podcast if he is a top five running quarterback of all time and he wasn't in the mood to be modest.

"Oh, I am because I definitely think I am," Fields said. "IÔÇÖm definitely in the top five. No order, but I got to go with my boy Mike Vick, gotta go with Cam [Newton], Lamar [Jackson], of course, me, and then finalÔÇŽ Steve Young too."
