On Sunday afternoon, the Chicago Bears were embarrassedly eliminated from the NFL playoffs. Mitchell Trubisky’s performance reinforced the fact that he is unlikely to return to the Windy City in 2021, although he has expressed a desire to return to the Bears. After the announcement of Ian Rapoport and the appearance of Trubisky in the playoffs, this is the burning question: Where will Mitchell Trubisky play in 2021? There are three likely landing points for him, and it’s only a matter of time before we know where the North Carolina product will allow him to exercise his talents.

Suffice it to say, Washington doesn’t want to plan its future around those two. They might be looking for a younger, more mobile quarterback. Head coach Ron Rivera is used to coaching quarterbacks like Cam Newton in Carolina. After Heinicke’s performance in the last loss to the Buccaneers, the conversation about the situation of the Washington quarterback became even more interesting. They could possibly choose Trubisky for a year to compete with Heinicke for the starting position.

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio has already spent time with Trubisky in Chicago, albeit on the other side of the ball. The Broncos have an attack system that uses mobile quarterfinal bags in combination with a solid playing technique. Simply put: Drew Lock is not the answer for the Broncos as quarterback. Jeff Driskel is also not really an attractive option for managing their housing. If Trubisky signs in Denver, he can be a regular customer from day one. There’ll be no competition, and he’ll probably be well paid.
Pittsburgh steel mills
The Steelers need a quarterback, even if their fans won’t admit it. Ben Roethlisberger is 38 years old and is far away from the veteran he once was.

Mason Rudolph is currently with the Steelers as a replacement for Big Ben, and his recent performances have not been stellar. Trubisky has more NFL experience than Rudolph and was able to provide Mike Tomlin with the athletics he missed when Roethlisberger aged. If the Steelers had hired Trubisky, he’d probably have gotten a one- or two-year deal. Trubisky and Rudolph will compete for the starting role, and Trubisky will probably win it by hand.
It’s hard to imagine that the Chicago Bears can bring back Mitchell Trubisky after all they’ve been through together. The bears have no choice but to replace him, and they could get into trouble if he leaves. Will Trubisky be in Chicago in 2021? Unlikely. Where will Mitchell Trubisky play in 2021?
