Ex-Bears QB could land starting job in 2022?

Is Mitch Trubisky this offseason’s version of Sam Darnold? Maybe so.

Jordan Schultz reported on Monday that Trubisky is drawing lots of free agent buzz. He further reports that Trubisky is being viewed as a potential starting quarterback in 2022.

Trubisky, 27, was the No. 2 overall pick by the Bears in 2017. He went 29-21 over four shaky seasons as their starter. Though he passed for 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions during a Pro Bowl season in 2018, he only passed for an average of 208 yards per game during his Bears career. His overall offensive performance was lacking based on the standards for 2022’s offenses.

However, the atrocious season the Bears’ quarterbacks had last year, coupled with how Trubisky looked in the preseason with Buffalo, has led some to reevaluate him. That’s why he might actually be sought by some teams in free agency.

Shockingly, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this narrative regarding Trubisky.

If anyone thinks they’re going to take Trubisky and turn him into the next Ryan Tannehill, they’re dreaming. First off, even Tannehill, as much as he has improved in Tennessee, can’t hang with the best quarterbacks in the league. And it’s much more likely that Trubisky is just a mediocre quarterback like Darnold. That will probably be confirmed if he lands another starting job.
