Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has been seen working out with teammates on multiple occasions throughout the offseason and has been putting in work to improve. Will it translate to more success this season?

The Chicago Bears have been looking for quarterback consistency for a long time now. They thought they might finally get it when they selected Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in the 2017 draft. Things did not turn out so well, and now we are hoping for even a glimpse of the elite potential the Bears saw in him. Trubisky knows he is on the hot seat, so he has been working this offseason to tap into that potential.

After a season in which we saw Trubisky regress from his Pro-Bowl season in 2018-2019, it looks like he has not lost his work ethic, as his offseason work has been vigorous. It seems like a large portion of NFL stars are posting workout videos every couple of days, so what is so important about Trubisky doing offseason workouts? Well, with a shortened preseason, the quarterback battle about to ensue, and the pressure on Trubisky, showing how he is working to improve can go a long way.

He has been calling different teammates to get reps in even before training camp starts, working on chemistry, timing, and getting to know some of his new teammates. Trubisky is showing his drive to improve as well as his leadership skills as a quarterback. The Bears have invested a lot into Trubisky, and to not have his fifth-year option accepted has put a ton of pressure on his shoulders. Trubisky seems to be doing all he can to try and improve this coming season.
