The Chicago Bears must look to add a quarterback due to Mitch Trubisky injury

I was skeptical when I heard about the shoulder injury Mitch Trubisky sustained after playing one down in the game versus the Saints. My first thought was that it was “faked” to put those who were calling for Trubisky to start over the Nick Foles after the first half of the loss to the Saints. However, it does seem that the injury is real as he went to see a specialist on the matter. With Trubisky listed as week-to-week, the Chicago Bears need to bring in another option.

Recently, the Chicago Bears held tryouts with Kyle Sloter and Jake Rudock. Honestly, I would not have a problem with Sloter being signed by the Bears, but he’s not going to be my first choice. Sloter has shown great skill during preseason games, but he has yet to take a regular-season snap. With Tyler Bray looking to be the backup in Week 9 versus the Titans, I would prefer that the Bears bring in a quarterback with a little more experience and honestly even more upside.

Look, I know Matt Nagy loves Bray, but he should not be a backup quarterback. He should not be one play away from starting for this team. Rather than Bray, Sloter or Rudock, the Bears should look to bring in someone who fans (and even players) would be somewhat excited about lining up under center. And let’s face it, with the patchwork offensive line playing this weekend, Nick Foles may not last beyond the first play of the game.
