Chicago Bears: 5 quarterbacks who may become available soon

The Chicago Bears could replace Mitch Trubisky with one of these future free agents
Just how different will the Chicago Bears look next season? With a second wild-card exit in three years, the team is searching for answers.
The loss in New Orleans was an embarrassing one, to say the least. The Bears’ defense did what they could to hold the Saints down for about three quarters and make no mistake, they played well considering the unit was down Roquan Smith, Buster Skrine and Jaylon Johnson.
The front four were active and Drew Brees felt some pressure on many dropbacks. The Bears even took the ball away, which is no longer the norm, sadly enough.
In the end, though, the offense simply couldn’t get it done. The Bears failed to score a touchdown until the tail-end of the game when Mitchell Trubisky led them down for a garbage time score. If it were not for that touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham, the Bears would have been left with three points for the entire afternoon.
Was this loss completely on Trubisky? Not necessarily. But, Matt Nagy’s scheme and play calls didn’t help. Whether it was he or Bill Lazor calling the shots, the Bears weren’t going to move the ball based on their game plan. It wasn’t happening.
This offseason, the quarterback position will once again be at the forefront for this organization and its fans. Where will they turn to? Sure, they could bring Trubisky back on a one or two-year deal. But, they could also have one of several options over the offseason.
Chicago could see what the draft entails, or they could go with a sure thing in one of the following veteran quarterbacks who may become available for one of many reasons.
