4. Nick Foles
It may seem harsh to rank Foles ahead of Trubisky at this stage. It is unclear whether it is Foles or Trubisky who will be starting come Week 1 and the former Philadelphia Eagle is coming off a sole season with the Jacksonville Jaguars in which he played just four games.
Foles was outplayed by sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew in 2019 and Trubisky must be given the edge when it comes to durability.
However, the peaks Trubisky has experienced have not come close to matching those enjoyed by Super Bowl LII MVP Foles.
Whether Foles can rediscover those heights remains to be seen, but he has a much better chance of doing so in Chicago than he did in Jacksonville.
The Bears are not exactly overflowing with top-tier talent at the offensive skill positions. However, Allen Robinson is a premier receiving threat on the boundary and Anthony Miller brings upside in the slot.
Chicago’s defense predictably regressed from their 2018 zenith last year, yet the Bears still have the talent on that side of the ball.
Foles will have to beat out Trubisky is to take advantage of the more favorable situation he finds himself in. However, even with the Bears unable to go through offseason activities, the momentum seems to be with Foles following the rejection of Trubisky’s contract option.
