The Chicago Bears are undergoing a change at the most important position. After taking Mitchell Trubisky 2nd overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, they have finally decided to hand the keys to their young signal caller. Mike Glennon began the season as the starter but will find his way to the bench to make way for Trubisky.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dan Graziano were the first to report the news:
Bears have made a QB change and are going with Mitchell Trubisky, sources tell @DanGrazianoESPN and me.

Chicago traded up for Trubisky so it figured to only be a matter of time till he was named the starter. Chicago is 1-3 on the season as the rookie will make his first start on Monday night at home against the Vikings. Given the fact that Chicago had extra time to prepare playing this past Thursday, it figured to be the best time to make the switch.
Glennon signed a $45 million deal with the Bears this offseason. He figures to be on his way out after this season given the fact that the remaining two years are non-gauranteed. For more on Mitchell Trubisky’s chances on making it in the NFL, click here.
