The Mitchell Trubisky era is officially over as the former Chicago Bears quarterback has signed with the Buffalo Bills according to a Tweet from Adam Schefter. He joins a quarterback room with Pro Bowler Josh Allen, Jake Fromm, and Davis Webb.

EDIT: Buffalo has now made it official and announced it as a 1-year deal and Ian Rapoport is reporting the contract is for $2.5 million.

As is customary in Chicago, the quarterback is one of the most polarizing athletes in the city, and Mitch kept that tradition up from the day he was drafted. But to his credit, he handled his entire four years in Chicago with class and professionalism. His teammates, coaches, and all the media personnel he interacted with on a daily basis have had nothing but positive remarks to say about him during his time in the Windy City.

He ends his Bears career fifth all time in both passing yards and passing touchdowns, and he’s also fifth all time in rushing yards among Chicago QBs.

Trubisky will now try to revitalize his career working with noted offensive guru Brian Daboll who was able to unlock the potential in Josh Allen and help him improve immensely in his three years as a pro.
