It seems as if Mitchell Trubisky will be taking a backup role, as he has signed with the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo already has an MVP candidate in Josh Allen. The details of the contract have not been reported at time of writing, but it likely is not huge, due to his likely role as a second-string quarterback.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter was one of the first to report the news on Thursday afternoon, via his very busy Twitter account.

Trubisky’s time in Chicago was fraught. He was the number two overall pick, and was selected over the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson; two much more successful quarterbacks in the eye-catching stat categories.
He led the team to the playoffs twice, although was sharing a lot of time with Nick Foles during the Bears’ 2020 season. Trubisky has thrown 64 touchdowns to 37 interceptions. His career high in yards came in 2018, with 3,223 in 14 games.
