Fields said Dalton and Nick Foles both have served as mentors since the Bears used a first-round choice on him in April.
“Yeah, I’ve learned a lot of things,” Fields said Thursday, via NFL Media. “[Dalton] has talked to me a lot. I actually went to dinner with him and his wife. We talked a lot there, kind of just his background, their story. Andy and Nick, they’ve been awesome — probably bigger than you guys would even know. Andy’s completely taken me under his wing. Any questions I have for him, he’s going to answer, even when I’m throwing. I think there was one day after OTAs, I was throwing extra after practice, and he stayed out there specifically just to see maybe what I was doing wrong and he was just trying to help me out. He’s been a huge help for sure.”
“I mean, of course, I feel [the pressure to produce],” Fields said. “You know, great things don’t happen all at once. I’m just going to be patient. Like I said earlier, I’ve been in a situation where I’ve had to learn behind a guy, so this is nothing new for me. I’m just going to take it day by day and get better each and every day. I’m going to trust coach [Matt] Nagy and the whole coaching staff here to develop me and make me the best quarterback I can be.”
