The Chicago Bears would not exercise the option they have on the contract of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
This is what was the network ESPN, Saturday.
Concretely, this means that the pivot 25 years of age may become a free agent with the restriction after the campaign 2020. At that, Trubisky will play the fourth year of his contract, rookie.
The Bears have until may 4 next year to exercise their option and extend the contract for an additional year.
The formation of the Illinois had drafted the quarterback in 2017. She had exchanged four choices to get the third pick in total and thus to choose the native of Ohio.
Trubisky had his best season in 2018, helping greatly the Bears to take part in the playoffs, and, pursuant to a record of 12-4. This year, the pivot had been invited to the Pro Bowl.
Things went downhill for the Bears and Trubisky in 2019. The team has completed its campaign with a record of 8-8, while one-quarter has raised 3138 yards of gains and threw 17 touchdowns. It has also been a victim of 10 interceptions.
During this off-season, Chicago was the acquisition of quarterback Nick Foles of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The latter will try to steal the starting job to Trubisky at the next training camp of the Bears.
