Chicago Bears Name Mitchell Trubisky Starting Quarterback

Mitch Trubisky is now QB1.

After falling to 1-3 to start the season following a 35-14 loss to the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the Bears have made the decision to name Trubisky the starting quarterback moving forward.

Trubisky was selected by the Bears as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft out of North Carolina.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced the news on Monday morning.

Trubisky replaces Mike Glennon, who signed a massive three-year, $45 million contract with $18.5 million guaranteed this offseason. The good news for the Bears is the contract includes team options for the next two seasons, so they could ultimately cut ties with Glennon following the failed experiment with him under center.

Through four games this season, Glennon has thrown for 833 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions.

Chicago will hope Trubisky can provided a spark on offense.

Trubisky will make his first NFL career start next week in primetime with a Monday Night Football clash against the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings.
