After acquiring Nick Foles, the Chicago Bears should explore trade offers involving Mitchell Trubisky and these five NFL teams should be interested.
Sure, there’s always the chances of the Bears keeping Trubisky around to provide some insurance at backup quarterback since he is experienced, but for the sake of both parties, moving on may be the best move.
When taking into consideration all of the frustration that has built up in Chicago over the last two seasons surrounding Trubisky’s struggles on offense, a fresh start on a new team could be in the best interest for the former first-round pick.
Not to mention, with Bears fans feeling even more frustration over the fact that Chicago passed on both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson during the draft back in 2017, the high level of frustration is only going to continue if he sticks around.
So with Foles officially coming on board to most likely become the new starter, the Bears have nothing to lose by exploring potential trade options across the NFL, whether it happens to be as a starter or backup.
Then again, as much as Trubisky doesn’t want to hear it, when looking around at quarterback situations across the league, chances are that any team expressing interest would most likely be bringing him on for his new current role in Chicago, which is the backup quarterback.
This time of year is always filled with numerous surprise moves that come out of nowhere, and Foles replacing Trubisky as the new Bears starter certainly deserves to be near the top of the list.
Now that Foles is heading to Chicago, here are five teams that should reach out to the Bears to see what it would take to land Trubisky in a trade for the 2020 season.
