Chicago Bears: Does Mitch Trubisky deserve a new contract?

Mitch Trubisky deserves a new contract
It is clear the issue now has been Matt Nagy all along. The fact Trubisky even got benched in the first place was garbage. The current passer rating leader in Bears’ history has looked extremely solid in an offense that is actually being run the way it should be.
Finally, after the Nagy mistakes, Nagy finally learned that Trubisky should be run in an offense similar to the Tennessee Titans offense with Ryan Tannehill, and it has paid off greatly. The Bears’ offense looks very tough to stop when Trubisky is in a rhythm and Lazor is calling the right plays. Although it may be too late as now the Chicago Bears should miss the playoffs, it seems they have put things together.
The general assumption is that both Nagy and Ryan Pace will be back next season, and Trubisky should be back with them. If they retool a lot of these pieces, they could bring Trubisky back on a one-year deal similar to the price that Marcus Mariota got with the Las Vegas Raiders. It basically would be a deal to see if he can finally do what he is doing on a consistent level with a team that may have better talent with new offensive tackles and James Daniels returning.
This would also enable the Bears to draft a quarterback in the later rounds to sit behind and both Trubisky and Foles. They could snag a guy like Ian Book or Jamie Newman to see if they could be a late-round steal.
Regardless, Trubisky should get another chance in an offense like this that is correctly suited to him. They can win with him the way he is playing.
