Pelissero: Bears reportedly decline Mitchell Trubisky's fifth-year option
The Chicago Bears have reportedly declined quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's 2020 fifth-year option.
2017's second overall pick will enter perhaps his most important year of his career after struggling with inconsistent play during his starting tenure in Chicago. According to Pelissero, Trubisky will need to earn this year's starting quarterback role after the Bears acquired veteran Nick Foles and declared an "open competition". This ultimately looks like Trubisky's last chance to prove he can start for the Bears.
On 1,280 career attempts, Trubisky has recorded 811 completions for 8,554 yards and 48 touchdowns. The 25-year old finished last season as Pro Football Focus' 30th ranked quarterback after starting 15 games.
