Mitchell Trubisky speaks out on future with Bears, admits lot of changes needed
With the season of the Chicago Bears now officially over, the team’s front office is faced with more than a few key decisions that need to be addressed in the offseason. One of the biggest issues at hand is the future of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who is going to be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.
Following Sunday’s gutting 21-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints, Trubisky himself opened up about the possibility of returning to Chicago for next season:
“I think I can definitely see myself back here next year,” Trubisky said on a Zoom call, via Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. “Obviously, a lot of that is out of my control, but it feels like home and it feels like we have unfinished business.
“Right now, I’m just bummed about this season being over and how the game went. So, a lot of emotions going on right now, but I can see that. We’ll see. There are a lot of things that have to happen and a lot of decisions that have to be made and that’s out of my control, but I can see that.”
Trubisky then went on to share his disappointments with the Bears this term. According to the 26-year-old QB, he believes that in order for this team to find success in the future, changes must be made:
“So there are some good things that we did toward the end of the season that helped put us in position to be able to play here tonight, but that’s now how we want to finish. We finished the season 8-8 and slid into the playoffs. We did that last year, so there are still things that need to be changed; there are still a lot of areas we need to grow in to build that championship culture that we want to get to. I think we have some pieces, but there is a lot more that we need to do better, and we need to figure that out.”
The Bears are going to have a very interesting offseason — one that will have a significant impact on the direction this team is going to take for the foreseeable future. Whether or not Trubisky is going to be part of that future still remains to be seen.
