The dust has settled a bit after yesterday's big trade.
The Chicago Bears and general manager Ryan Pace of course brought in quarterback Nick Foles from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
While it's kind of hard to imagine Foles sitting around being the most expensive backup in the league, NFL insider Mike Garafolo said that Mitch Trubisky will be given the upper hand in any sort of competition.
If it was somebody else maybe we could buy that, however looking at these connections you have to kind of believe that Foles will be the starter.
Head coach Matt Nagy was the offensive quality control coach when Foles was a rookie with the Eagles in 2012.
Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor was Foles QB coach in 2013 when he threw 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions.
QB coach John DeFilippo was Foles QB coach in 2017 when he become the Super Bowl MVP taking over for an injured Carson Wentz.
The connections are clear.
Who do you think will be the Week 1 starter?
