Mitchell Trubisky landing spot no. 3: Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos are still — at the time of this post being written — holding out hope for Aaron Rodgers.
That seems like a fleeting hope at this point, but until Rodgers declares what he’s going to do in 2022 one way or the other, that likely prevents Denver from pursuing any other options.
With free agency so close now, Rodgers has to make his intentions for the 2022 season known and teams should already have offers lined up if the Packers do agree to trade him away.
If the Packers and Rodgers stick together, teams like the Denver Broncos are going to be forced into their backup plans. For the Broncos, could Mitchell Trubisky make sense for a second straight season?
Trubisky made sense for Denver last year coming off of a down year in Chicago where he could have likely done what Teddy Bridgewater did — win the starting job over Drew Lock and get another full season of starts under his belt.
The Broncos didn’t have interest in Trubisky last year, at least not in terms of making him an offer, but maybe they will in 2022.
George Paton, the Denver Broncos GM, is likely quite familiar with Trubisky having been with the Minnesota Vikings for the majority of Trubisky’s career thus far.
Nathaniel Hackett and his new offensive staff are emphasizing building an offense around the players, and with a player-friendly scheme, Trubisky’s athleticism and arm talent could be a good fit for the Broncos at a team-friendly price.
