The Chicago Bears are now at the point where they should trade Mitchell Trubisky.

The Chicago Bears did it! They got themselves another quarterback. Nick Foles is coming to Chicago. He is being traded to the Bears for a fourth-round pick going back to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Adam Schefter dropped the news on the world that should see Gardner Minshew take over as Jacksonville’s quarterback. Foles is coming to Chicago, who desperately needed an upgrade at the position.

Foles is not a superstar and he is on an expensive contract. He is going to need to be the guy who scores enough points to take advantage of their sweet defense. He doesn’t need to be Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady, but he needs to be just good enough. It is fair to wonder if he will be able to do that but he has in the past. When Carson Wentz went down in 2017 due to injury while having an MVP caliber season, Foles stepped in and led them to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.

With all of that comes the question about Mitchell Trubisky. He was drafted second overall in the 2017 NFL draft to be the Bears franchise quarterback. That looked like it might be possible after the 2018 season saw him go 13-3 but in 2019 he was a complete mess for the most part.

Now that Foles is coming to town, it makes you wonder if the Bears are going to shop Trubisky around. It seems unlikely, sure. But, it would be worth Ryan Pace cutting ties and drafting the future to come in behind Foles.

There are teams that might see him as a project that they can fix or a team might see him as an upgrade to their backup spot. These are three trade packages that would make sense for Trubisky and the Bears.
