Originally the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, expectations were incredibly high for Mitchell Trubisky as he was thought to be the savior of the Windy City.
With running David Montgomery and star wide receiver Allen Robinson by his side along with an elite defense led by Khalil Mack, Trubisky just didn’t get the job done in 2020 and likely won’t return to Chicago next season.
Now, the lone positive is that he did make the playoffs, but the Bears were handled easily by the Saints. Trubisky, in that game, 199 yards and one garbage-time touchdown. It was an unimpressive showing against a formidable Saints defense.
He had just over 2,000 yards on the season to go with 16 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Playing in ten games and starting nine, the Bears turned to Nick Foles but eventually returned to their former top pick.
The Bears and Trubisky aren’t interested in teaming up for the 2021 season according to Bears Wire. With Trubisky on the market, expect teams to give him a shot, and let’s hope that New Orleans isn’t one of the teams that consider Trubisky the solution to their quarterback problem.
