The former UNC standout signed a $2.5 million deal to be in Buffalo but he barely played in seven appearances.
While he was not taking the field for obvious reasons, Trubisky may have enjoyed the experience because the pressure to perform was not there.
He kept himself ready once his number was called and learned a great deal from Allen and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
But after one season of essentially learning the ropes, the interest for Trubisky is intensifying.
Trubisky being the talk of the town is quite puzzling.
However, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky thinks that the clamor for the former first-round draft pick isn’t surprising.
Trubisky should be a starter

Orlovsky tweeted, “Trubisky should be a starter.”
With several teams in the market for a quarterback, his statement might come true soon.
Orlovsky Has A Point
Yes, Trubisky did not win a playoff game in two postseason appearances for the Bears.
But he had solid performances in both tries, especially in the 2018 Wild Card Game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Trubisky finished that game with 303 yards and a touchdown but ultimately lost by one point.
He also had a 29-21 record in his four seasons in Chicago, including an 11-3 mark in 2018.
There were factors beyond his control that led to the team’s downfall.
However, put him on a team with talented players around him and Orlovsky’s tweet will become more fact than fiction.
Once Trubisky officially becomes a free agent later this month, he will be busy fielding phone calls from his agent regarding teams that are interested to have him.
