In non-Patriots related football news, Mitchell Trubisky of the Chicago Bears has been called in to replace Jared Goff at the Pro Bowl.

According to ABC7 Chicago, the Bears quarterback will be playing in the place of Goff, who won’t be able to play in the Pro Bowl because he’s off to the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Rams, of course, will be facing off against the New England Patriots on Sunday, February 3rd.

Mitch Trubisky is the first Bears quarterback to head to the Pro Bowl since 1985, when the team sent Jim McMahon to represent for the Windy City.

Trubisky will be joining five other Bears in the Pro Bowl: linebacker Khalil Mack, defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, cornerback Kyle Fuller, safety Eddie Jackson, and return specialist Tarik Cohen.

Mitch Trubisky certainly had a great season, even though his team didn’t make it to the playoffs. He threw for 3,223 yards and 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in his second season since being drafted by the Bears.

Bears coach Matt Nagy has nothing but good things to say about the second-round draft pick from North Carolina.

“Nobody truly knows how far that kid’s come this year more than me. I’m looking forward to the future because the city of Chicago is lucky to have that kid at quarterback. We threw a lot at him early on. We threw a bunch at him, and he didn’t really have a big library into seeing a bunch of different defenses.”

Mitch Trubisky will play in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, January 27th.
