Justin Fields says his decision to unfollow the Chicago Bears on Instagram is nothing more than him needing a break from social media.

Fields cleared the air about not following the Bears and the NFL's account after it was discovered Monday that the quarterback no longer followed his team during an appearance on the "St. Brown Brothers" podcast.

"Why do people take social media so serious?" Fields said. "I still mess with the Bears, this and that. I'm just trying to take a little break. I unfollowed the Bears and the NFL. I'm not just trying to have football on my timeline.

"It's something that I don't want to see on my timeline. I'm about to go on vacation. I don't want to see no football. And guess what? [The social media discourse is] either keep Fields, we want Fields. It's either draft Caleb [Williams]. I'm tired of hearing the talk. I just want it to be over."

The Bears own the No. 1 pick in April's draft and face a huge decision at quarterback.
