Four quarterbacks the Chicago Bears must sign due to Mitch Trubisky injury
Cole McDonald could be fun to see in a Chicago Bears uniform
Another 2020 NFL Draft prospect many Chicago Bears fans were hoping to see in a Bears uniform was Cole McDonald. McDonald was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the seventh round. McDonald played college football for Hawaii and was more than a one-year wonder.
Despite not being able to stick to an NFL roster, McDonald had a very successful collegiate career. He threw for 3,875 yards in his sophomore season. This averaged out to 298 yards per game. He also finished the year with 36 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
McDonald actually improved in certain areas during his junior, and final, season with Hawaii. His completion percentage improved to 63.8 percent as he threw for 4,135 yards, 33 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The interceptions came up some as the touchdowns dropped a little, but he also gained 383 yards while scoring seven touchdowns on the ground. This was an increase over his sophomore season when he gained 359 yards and only four touchdowns.
The Chicago Bears need a spark on offense. Maybe while Mitch Trubisky deals with his week-to-week injury the team decides to bring in a higher-upside quarterback to replace him. With the new 2020 NFL injured-reserve rules, the Bears can place Trubisky on IR for three weeks while his shoulder improves. Then they can add a player like Rosen, Kizer, Gordon or McDonald to the active roster while keeping Tyler Bray on the practice squad.
