The Bears are reportedly still keeping all options open at quarterback and that includes a potential reunion with Mitchell Trubisky.
The Mitchell Trubisky experiment was a failure for the Chicago Bears. General manager Ryan Pace took a big chance in 2017 by trading up to No. 2 overall to grab the North Carolina quarterback. Now that looks like one of the worst moves in NFL Draft history considering Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes were both still on the board.
Trubisky has dealt with some minor injuries and has never had a great set of weapons around him outside of Allen Robinson, but those excuses don’t fly. A clean break makes sense for both sides now that he is a free agent this offseason but Pace can’t seem to let go of the idea of bringing Trubisky back.
Pace has maintained he’s keeping all options open when it comes to the quarterback position.
Ryan Pace still has Mitchell Trubisky on the mind
Trubisky returning to the Bears does not make sense for either side. He would be returning to a team that didn’t pick up his fifth-year option and clearly doesn’t see him as someone who can lead the team to consistent success.
The Bears traded for Nick Foles who later supplanted Trubisky as the team’s starter for a bulk of the season before Matt Nagy had no choice but to give Trubisky another chance.
But enough is enough. Four years is enough time to see what you have with a quarterback.
Pace seems to just be giving the usual cliche responses about not ruling anything out.
Is it possible the Bears bring back Trubisky? Technically, yes that could happen. It’s just as likely that you are signed by the Bears as Trubisky. In other words, it’s not happening.
