Pace didn't commit to exercising the fifth-year option on Trubisky's rookie contract, saying it's too early in the offseason to address that looming decision. The Bears must make a call on the option by May 5.
Trubisky regressed in his third NFL campaign, throwing 17 touchdown passes against 10 interceptions while averaging a career-low 6.1 yards per pass attempt. His passer rating of 83.0 ranked 28th among 32 qualifying quarterbacks. Pace acknowledged the former No. 2 overall pick must play with greater consistency next season.
Trubisky's status in Chicago has been the subject of speculation for weeks. Frustrated Bears fans have implored the franchise to target a veteran starter to replace - or at least challenge - Trubisky in 2020.
Head coach Matt Nagy said "decision-making" will be his top priority for Trubisky this offseason, but added that he wants the 25-year-old "to be a master at understanding coverages."
