It's been quite the whirlwind in Chicago over the last week and it's just been topped off with a bombshell. The Chicago Bears have finally given up on the Mitch Trubisky experiment and moved on from the 25 year old quarterback. General manager Ryan Pace has shipped Trubisky off to the Kansas City Chiefs for a 2020 4th round draft pick (108th overall). It's quite the turn around considering that the Bears traded the Nos. 3, 67 and 111 picks overall, as well as a 2018 third-round pick during the 2017 NFL Draft to move up and select Trubisky. Both Pace and head coach Matt Nagy repeatedly gave Trubisky a vote of confidence during the offseason but eventually wound up trading for Nick Foles from the Jacksonville Jaguars. With all the connections Foles has to the Bears coaching staff, it led many to believe that he was going to be the starter and there wouldn't be any "real" competition for the starting job during training camp. While he's shown some glimpses of promise over the last couple of seasons it just hasn't been enough. Trubisky's best year came in 2018 when the Bears made the playoffs. During the 2018 season, Trubisky threw for 3223 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and followed that up with 3138 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last year but was hampered by injury. ESPN's April Foolington is expected to have more details of the trade later on today.
