Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago Bears

Most of you Saints fans would look at this option and say, “please, no.” I will admit, I am not excited about it either, but he is a former/current starting quarterback that is on the free-agent market that will likely be on the move this offseason.

Trubisky has been in Chicago after they drafted him out of the University of North Carolina in 2017. He has by no means given us any inclination that he can be a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, but you have to remember he has only been a part of the Bears.

They haven’t even sniffed a Super Bowl in the last three years and probably won’t under Matt Nagy. Give Trubisky a team and offense like the New Orleans Saints and he could revert back to the Trubisky that we saw at UNC — the reason he was drafted so high.

In 2018, Trubisky was a Pro-Bowl quarterback throwing for 3,223 yards and 24 touchdowns on a 66 percent completion percentage. Trubisky has the skill to be a winning quarterback, he has just been missing the right coaching staff and team.

Trubisky would be a huge cap-friendly option.
