Here's a little news that we all probably knew already but is engaging nonetheless:
Bears haven’t made any official announcement on whether they will pick up QB Mitchell Trubisky’s fifth-year option, but people around the league believe they will not. Should the Bears pick up Trubiksky’s option, the salary projects to be over $24 million.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 25, 2020
Chicago has until May 4 to make its final decision. Bears traded this year’s fourth-round compensatory pick to Jacksonville for QB Nick Foles, adding depth at the position and what the Bears have called an “open competition” at QB. https://t.co/iFqFEYbR2L— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 25, 2020
Honestly, the most interesting part about these tweets are the quotations put around "open competition," which seems to indicate that Schefter has also heard that the competition isn't actually that open. Both Kyle Long and Prince Amukamara have made similar comments about the starting QB job in recent days, and it's widely considered to be Foles' job to lose this summer.
All signs point to Trubisky being QB2 this year, and then looking for a job elsewhere after the 2020 season. We'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out, even though we all kind of know how it's going to play out.
