Bears 2020 Free Agency Target: QB Jameis Winston

The Chicago Bears failed to live up to the high expectations this past season, missing the playoffs with an even 8-8 record.

There was certainly a lot of blame to go around in Chicago, but most fans will tell you that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was the main culprit for the Bears disappointing season.

He showed flashes of potential in his 2018 campaign, earning his first Pro Bowl selection. Trubisky followed up his stellar 2018 outing with a very lack luster performance this past year, regressing in nearly every major passing category.

It’s hard to project what the Bears will do with their quarterback this offseason. They could potentially bring in another young QB through the draft, which wouldn’t be a terrible choice. Or, they could go the free agency route and bring in a veteran guy for head coach Matt Nagy to work with.

There are a number of solid quarterbacks set to hit the open market this offseason. Among them, is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston.

Like Trubisky, Winston under performed last season, leading many to believe his days as a Buccaneer are numbered.

The Bears should stay clear of Winston at all costs.
