Trubisky was the first quarterback selected in the 2017 NFL Draft. Looking back, it’s insane because the Bears selected him ahead of Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Hindsight is a wonderful thing but it now seems like the mistake of a century. Maybe it wouldn’t matter because Chicago is where quarterbacks go to die.
He set several rookie franchise records and the hype increased in his sophomore term. There were even whispers of a potential MVP season. But everything went wrong for him over the next couple of years and finally, the Bears discarded him like yesterday’s garbage (via Bleacher Report).
