He could become the team’s starting quarterback after signing a two-year contract.
It’s the chance he was looking for after being Josh Allen‘s backup with the Buffalo Bills last season.
The Chicago Bears also had high hopes for him after selecting him second overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.
While he led the Bears to two postseason stints, they failed to win a game in both instances.
Unfortunately, his career will forever be compared to Patrick Mahomes, who was taken eight spots after him.
But it seems that he is making the most of the opportunity given to him, as shown in this video.

Facing third-and-six at their 45-yard line, Trubisky lined up in the shotgun with four wide receivers in formation.
After taking a three-step drop, he completed a back-shoulder throw to rookie wideout George Pickens.
The catch gave Pittsburgh a first down and enough gain to get into field goal range.
The Steelers won the game against the Detroit Lions, 19-9.
More importantly, Trubisky made a strong case for being the team’s starter after finishing with 15 completions out of 19 throws for 160 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, Pickens collected three catches for 35 yards.
Trubisky’s Competition As The Starter
Aside from him, rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett might have overtaken Mason Rudolph in the depth chart.
In the game against the Lions, the former Pitt Panther completed ten of 14 passes for 90 yards.
That’s not his best game, though, because he had 13 completions for 95 yards and two touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 of the preseason.
While Trubisky might still be the Steelers’ starter in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Pickett might have narrowed the gap between them.
