Nick Foles, Mitchell Trubisky in 'open competition' for Bears' job
Chicago Bears quarterbacks Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky are in an "open competition," general manager Ryan Pace said.
Bears head coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky will take the first snaps, but that both quarterbacks will see "equal reps" and that it will be "extremely competitive." Foles, who the Bears acquired in a trade last month, could have a slight advantage due to his familiarity with fellow newcomers, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. Foles turned 31 at the beginning of this year. Trubisky, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract, will be 26 when the season starts.
Trubisky averaged 14.19 FanDuel points per game last season, finishing as the QB32. Foles averaged 9.94 FanDuel points per game and was the QB40. Trubisky ranked 33rd in numberFire's advanced passing metric, compared to Foles ranking 38th, out of 42 quarterbacks with at least 100 dropbacks.
