Chicago Bears’ general manager Ryan Pace met with the media today and made, perhaps his most definitive statement about Mitch Trubisky.
Following the end of the season, the Chicago Bears appeared firmly behind Mitchell Trubisky as their starter for the 2020 season. However, they were not prepared to commit to his fifth-year option at that time. Tuesday was the first opportunity since their end of the year press conference to hear from Ryan Pace, the Bears’ general manager. In his remarks, he made, what could be the most definitive statement about Mitch yet.
There appears to be a fundamental disconnect between what Ryan Pace is saying and what the Bears are actually doing. Despite having nearly two months to digest the season, and consider whether to give Mitch his fifth-year option, they are still not prepared to make that decision. Let that sink in for a moment. They have exactly one quarterback on the roster. He happens to be the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, whom the general manager traded up for because he absolutely had to have this guy. And yet, he’s still undecided whether he wants to give him his fifth-year option.
