Time to Move On

This one makes me sad, but it would need to be the final offer that Ryan Pace gives to Jon Gruden. If Gruden and the Raiders ink Tom Brady, everyone knows the deal will not extend beyond 2021. Essentially the team will have one to two years with Brady and then the Raiders will be on the hunt for another quarterback. As much as it pains me to say this, Pace should offer up Trubisky in a trade package if one of the first two does not convince Gruden.

Trading away Trubisky would not be ideal, as having him gives Matt Nagy and Pace an insurance policy. That said, moving on from Trubisky to use Derek Carr is not that scary as a Chicago Bears fan. Carr would easily win the quarterback competition this offseason and Trubisky would likely become the backup. This would be a shock to Trubisky and honestly his ego. Moving on from him would be the humane thing to do if we are being honest.

Sending Trubisky to the Raiders would also give Gruden an insurance policy behind Brady. Brady is going to be 43 years old this season. The likelihood of an injury is higher (even though he has never had many). To sweeten the pot, Pace would still need to throw in some draft capital.

Next. Which available quarterback fits best in Chicago. dark

In order for Pace to entice Gruden enough, he will have to throw in the Chicago Bears 2021 third-round draft pick. Any of these moves would be worthwhile for Pace and the Bears. Hopefully, one of these three (or similar) comes true. If this Bears team had the likes of Derek Carr under center, the team would be perennial playoff contenders.
