The Chicago Bears paid big money to Mike Glennon in free agency. But with the second overall pick, following a trade with the San Francisco 49ers, the Bears have drafted Mitchell Trubisky.
The former North Carolina Tar Heels signal-caller will now get to “red-shirt” a season, then the Bears will use the approach of “we’ll see.” Glennon signed a three-year deal with the team, but they’re going to use it as a one-year deal likely now.
“It was crazy,” he said. “I knew I was going to going to go where I was meant to be. I didn’t know the pick was me until the Commissioner said my name.”
Trubisky – who was considered the second overall pick for a long-time – is the third Tar Heels player to go second overall. However, he is the first offense player.
Julius Peppers, who is still in the league with the Carolina Panthers, was the second overall pick in 2002. Also, Lawrence Taylor was the second overall pick in 1981.
