NFC Notes: Bears, Lions, Vikings


It’s no secret 2020 is a critical year for the Bears and QB Mitchell Trubisky. After trading up to bet on Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in 2017, Chicago declined his fifth-year option and brought in QB Nick Foles to compete for the starting job. However, the Bears aren’t leaving Trubisky completely hanging. New OC Bill Lazor was brought in as a part of the effort to improve the offense around Trubisky and says he has a clean slate going forward to prove himself. 

“Everything is open as far as what is going to happen next and I feel very good about the talks that Mitch and I have had about the fact that his future and his career is in his hands,” Lazor said via Larry Mayer of the team website. “I think that’s the way he and I have kind of agreed to look at it. And that’s a great thing about football; it’s up to you.

“I think he’s got a lot of great football ahead of him … Once he gets in there and gets going, let’s let him determine the story. I’m not going to sit back and talk about his past. I’m going to let Mitch determine the story. He and I have kind of come to that agreement, and I think it’s the right way to approach it. But his attitude has been fantastic. I can evaluate that. His communication skills are fantastic. I just look forward with all these guys being face-to-face.”
