Mitchell Trubisky claims he’s got ‘unfinished business’ with BearsBy Ryan Ward
The Chicago Bears saw their 2020 season end disappointingly with a wildcard round playoff exit.

“I think I can definitely see myself back here next year,” Trubisky said on a Zoom call. “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.”
The early reports don’t hold an optimistic perspective of the situation with his tenure with the Chicago likely finished. Trubisky struggled to grasp the starting job throughout the 2020 campaign through his ups and downs.
The Bears may elect to move forward in another quarterback while keeping Nick Foles as the backup for the 2021 campaign. Foles is finishing the first year of his three-year, $24 million deal. His spot on the roster is likely set in stone for next season due to holding a $14.3 dead cap hit.
Beyond that, there isn’t any clarity on if Trubisky will get that opportunity to extend his stay with the Bears.
