Teddy Bridgewater would be an upgrade for these five teams

Mitchell Trubisky/Nick Foles
Sure, the Chicago Bears made the playoff last season. But that had almost nothing to do with the production they received from Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles under center.
They were once again led by an imposing defense and Chicago was also assiting by a relative lack of depth in terms of quality across the NFC. Trubisky and Foles both failed to convince the Bears they were capable of elading the organization moving forward and they are a team that should also be big players in the quarterback market in the coming weeks.
Trubisky looks to be done with the organization and can be classed as one of the worst NFL Draft picks of all time. Hindsight is a wonderful thing to have, but considering the Bears moved up to take the player in the same draft as Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson with the No. 2 overall selection will haunt them for years after he’s departed.
Foles didn’t exactly shine when he replaced Trubisky during the campaign. His Super Bowl triumph with the Philadelphia Eagles now seems like a distant memory and considering how hard Chicago pursued Teddy Bridgewater last spring, a similar move this time around is not out of the realm of possibility.
Whether they’ll have their eyes on a bigger prize such as Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson is up for debate. But it’s hard to look at Foles and Trubisky’s combined production in 2020 and not think Bridgewater wouldn’t be a better option.
