But it is important to remember that was not his decision.
Trubisky started a total of 50 games with the Bears from 2017-2020 and compiled a record of 29-21.
He also quarterbacked Chicago in the playoffs twice, which both ended up in losses.
His NFL journey led him to the Buffalo Bills in 2021 where he served as Josh Allen‘s backup for the entire season.
A year away from the field has seemingly raised his stock and he continues to come up in rumors regarding openings around the NFL.
NFL on CBS decided to hype him up further with a stat showing how he protects the football.
Nearly 200 QBs have started 50+ games in the NFL since 1950
Only 1 of those QBs has NEVER thrown a Pick Six in his career
That QB is Mitchell Trubisky pic.twitter.com/w62NCQ8iL1

It turns out Trubisky is the only quarterback since 1950 with at least 50 starts and no pick-sixes.
So what should that mean to potential suitors?
Trubisky Remains A Low-Risk Option
The former No. 2 overall pick signed a $2.5 million deal with the Bills last season.
Even if a team brings him in to compete for a starter spot, it won’t be for a monumental increase in salary.
A team can bring him in on a one or two-year “prove it” deal similar to what Jameis Winston signed in New Orleans in 2020.
His base salary can be for a few million dollars with incentives that could make it rise much higher.
If he fails, the team did not waste money.
But if he lives up to his hype, it could be a top bargain in the entire NFL.
