Raiders: 4 potential free agent replacements for Marcus Mariota
Considered a draft bust during his time with the Chicago Bears, Mitchell Trubisky is entering free agency this season after a stint with the Buffalo Bills. During his time with the Bills, Trubisky was the backup to star Josh Allen, gaining valuable experience in the No. 2 role, and continuing his development as an NFL quarterback.
A former No. 2 overall pick, Trubisky’s numbers were not terrible in Chicago, as he won 29 of 50 games, and led his team to the playoffs three times. Sure, he had an incredible defense during his time there, but that is a lot of winning for a franchise that has not done a lot of winning recently.
An Ohio kid just like Ziegler and McDaniels, Trubisky can hurt teams with his arm, and his legs, as has averaged over 5.0 yards per carry in his career. He is still only 27-years old, and would likely only take a small salary to continue his career as a backup in Vegas.
