The Chicago Bears should consider Bo Levi Mitchell

Forget the fact that Bo Levi Mitchell has one of the coolest names for the spotlight of the NFL, he also looks to have some serious talent. Mitchell is already 30 years old, but maybe that is a good thing for a new third-string quarterback. He can add new experiences and visions to the quarterback room.

Mitchell is a two-time CFL Most Outstanding Player of the Year Award winner. Those same two seasons (2016 and 2018), he was an All-Star. He was also a three-time West Division All-Star. He has won two Grey Cups (the CFL’s Super Bowl) and both times he was awarded MVP of the game.

When it comes to Mitchell, his accuracy is noticeable. This was not necessarily the case when he was in college at SMU. He started his freshman and sophomore years in 2008 and 2009. His accuracy for both seasons averaged out to a 57 percent completion percentage. This not anything to get excited about.

Should the Bears and Packers make this trade?. dark. Next

However, players seem to feel differently in the CFL. He has seen higher than a 60 percent completion percentage for most of his CFL career. He also has a 2.4:1 TD to interception ratio. He just seems to bring more upside and experience to a quarterback room. That experience seems better to me (even if in the CFL) than counting on Bray to lead the way should a disaster happen to Trubisky and Foles. Out of these two, I would think Mitchell makes the most sense.
