Future Of Bears QB Mitch Trubisky Won't Be Discussed Till After The Postseason

It's been an up and down career thus far for Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who is 29-20 in three seasons as a starter for Chicago.

The Bears, though, have occasionally moved away from Trubisky, whom the team took with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Trubisky has struggled at times, and the organization has to make a decision sooner or later about how many chances they are going to give him as the face of the franchise. However, that decision won't come until after the playoffs, according to Peter Schrager of Fox Sports.

Schrager said Sunday that the pair will sit down after the postseason and try to come to a decision on what is best for both sides.

Trubisky started 2020 as the Bears starter, but was replaced by former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles after Week 3.

Foles struggled, and Trubisky came back in Week 8. He has played well since then, leading the Bears to a Wild Card berth in the NFC.

Trubisky has thrown 16 touchdowns in 2020 with eight interceptions to go along with 2055 yards and a quarterback rating of 93.5.

If the Bears do go in another direction, they could look to make a huge splash at the QB spot in free agency, going after the likes of Dak Prescott, Philip Rivers, Ryan Fitzpatrick, or even unhappy Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

Trubisky will get a chance to prove his worth this weekend when the Bears have a showdown against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at 4:40pm EST.
