Mitchell Trubisky spent four very rough seasons with the Chicago Bears. Years that he was relentlessly heckled and basically pushed out of town despite being drafted number two overall by the organization. He missed a lot of throws in his last two years there and at times it felt like he played scared when boos started to rain down upon him. This resulted in him leaving and signing a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills.
He spent the entire season learning from Josh Allen and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. Apparently, the year changed his mindset. Trubisky said, “I’m in a confident space right now. Going to Buffalo really opened my eyes. After being in Chicago for four years, there was only one way I knew how to do things. Being in Buffalo and having a different way of doing things, you learn what’s possible. It helped me get back to instinctual football and using my talents rather than overthinking.”
Trubisky didn’t get much playing time this season on Buffalo. He completed just six out of his eight passing attempts for 75 yards and an interception throughout the 2021 season. He also wrapped up his interview by saying, “You can’t be afraid to make mistakes. When guys are playing free, you are at your best. I wanted to learn how the Bills helped Josh, and I saw that firsthand.”
Where Would Mitchell Trubisky Go?
Trubisky is now entering free agency for the second time and may have a lot of suitors. While he may not get the starting quarterback job he desires, he will certainly find a new home. There are a lot of quarterback needy teams that will be scanning the market this year, especially considering that the upcoming draft class is weak at the position. Some have linked Trubisky to the New York Giants as well. This is mostly because Brian Daboll is now the head coach there. Trubisky could compete with Daniel Jones for the job, though it’s just a thought.
