3. Justin Fields would cost draft picks... and would soon demand a lot of money

Should the Falcons pay a quarterback or draft a quarterback this offseason? Both have their advantages but trading for Justin Fields would use up both resources.

While Fields is still on his rookie contract, he only has one year left with the potential for a fifth year if it is exercised.
