Pace: 'Everything's on the table' regarding Bears' QB situation

One of the Chicago Bears' biggest offseason decisions concerns the future of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

The No. 2 selection in the 2017 draft is set to become an unrestricted free agent March 17 after Chicago declined to pick up his fifth-year option.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace said Tuesday that "everything's on the table" regarding the quarterback position, according to Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic. Pace added, "We have a plan in place and now it's about executing that plan."

Trubisky's compiled a 29-21 record as a starter over four seasons. In 2020, he passed for a career-low 2,055 yards in nine starts after suffering a shoulder injury during the regular season.

Chicago has been linked to established passers such as Matthew Stafford and Deshaun Watson and would be a finalist for Russell Wilson if he becomes available. The Bears would likely need to move up from the 20th spot in this spring's draft to have a shot at selecting one of a promising group of passers.

Last offseason, the Bears acquired former Super Bowl signal-caller Nick Foles from the Jacksonville Jaguars to compete for the starting job with Trubisky. Foles started seven games and tallied 1,852 yards and 10 touchdowns. However, his 2-5 record and eight interceptions left much to be desired.

Meanwhile, Pace expressed a desire to see star wideout Allen Robinson return. Robinson is a pending free agent and the team could use the franchise tag on him.

"We love Allen Robinson. ... We want to keep our good players and Allen is a good player for us," said Pace.

Robinson led Chicago with 102 receptions, 1,250 yards, and six touchdowns last season. The 27-year-old pass-catcher would be considered one of the biggest prizes available ahead of free agency.

The Bears went 8-8 last season and lost to the New Orleans Saints in the wild-card round.
