Mitchell Trubisky is facing the most important season of his career in 2020. He is now in a competition with Nick Foles to earn the starting quarterback job for the Chicago Bears and he should be more motivated than ever.
Losing the competition likely means the former No. 2 overall pick is searching for a new job in 2021. He appears to know that and was recently seen working out with a quarterback guru.
Jeff Christensen had a brief NFL career in the 80s and has built a new career as a coach who has worked with the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo. He has a great reputation and Bears fans are now hoping he can get Trubisky to live up to his full potential.
This is great news to see Trubisky working hard this offseason. He will face a more difficult task now that the NFLPA has told players to not hold group workouts, but learning from Christensen in any capacity should help.
Trubisky has been the starter in Chicago for three seasons after taking the job from Mike Glennon in 2017. He showed major regression from 2018 to 2019 and now has true competition on the depth chart in Foles.
So even if his time in Chicago is almost up, Trubisky needs to be thinking about his career in 2021 and beyond. The workouts with Christensen show he is not being complacent at all.
