The Chicago Bears have declined quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s 5th-year option on his rookie contract. This would allow Trubisky to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Trubisky, the second overall pick in the 2017 draft long-term future with the team, has been on edge since his downfall play this past year. Recording 3,138 passing yards on a 63.2% completion percentage with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Chicago responded to the talks of Trubisky’s future by going out and trading for quarterback Nick Foles who only played in 4 games last year as he dealt with injury.
Trubisky and Foles will likely battle it out during training camp for the starting job but it looks like Foles will be the future for the Bears as they take on his 3-year $24 million contract. Trubisky’s time looks to be over in Chicago.
