The Chicago Bears need to move on from Mitchell Trubisky after the 2020 season.
The Bears former No. 2 draft selection in the 2017 NFL Draft is entering his fourth season. During his second year, the Bears were 12-4 and won the NFC North. In 2019, Trubisky regressed as the Bears finished third in the NFC North and missed the playoffs at 8-8.
Chicago averaged 17.5 points per game, ranking 29th in the NFL.
Here are five reasons why it would be wise for the Bears to move on from Trubisky after 2020
5. Trubisky’s Contract
In March, the Bears brass decided to decline Trubisky’s fifth-year option. This means Trubisky’s contract is set to expire after 2020. While the Bears will be off the hook, they should take advantage of their out.
The Bears gain nothing by deciding to offer Trubisky another contract. They should allow Trubisky to enter free agency and find a new quarterback either through free agency or the NFL Draft.
Also, this offseason the Bears traded a draft pick to acquire Nick Foles. Foles is under a restructured three-year contract. He gives the squad an option at quarterback for 2021, serving as a bridge or compete for the starting job moving forward.
