Many Chicago Bears fans want to see a major change at the quarterback position in 2020. Here are how the quarterbacks stack up based on talent, fit and cost.

No matter if you believe in Mitchell Trubisky or not, one thing is clear, the Chicago Bears need to revamp their quarterback situation for the 2020 season. Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray are no longer under contract once the new league year starts. Are either of them worth bringing back at this point, or should Ryan Pace look to add some competition at the signal-caller position?

This offseason might be the first offseason I can remember with so many prominent quarterbacks available in free agency. Philip Rivers has already been told he will not be back with the Chargers. Tom Brady is going to test free agency. Even a name like Case Keenum is worth noting when it comes to free-agent quarterback additions.

Rumors of other quarterbacks becoming available via trade are also swirling around. Cam Newton, Alex Smith and Derek Carr are all rumored to be on their respective teams’ trading blocks. When you add them into the mix, the idea that more than one handful of teams could have a new quarterback in 2020 is somewhat exciting.

The question here remains though, which quarterback will be best suited to help the Chicago Bears move forward and not only lead the team back to the playoffs but also fight for a Super Bowl Championship. When making these rankings, multiple factors need to be considered. The player’s salary and length of the current contract, age, fit into Matt Nagy’s offense and maybe most importantly, the player’s talent level.
