The Buffalo Bills have signed free-agent quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. This will be his second tenure with the team.

He signed a two-year contract with the Bills. As he did previously, he will be the backup to star quarterback Josh Allen.

Like his previous stint, he is not expected to see much playing time unless it is in garbage time or if something happens to Allen.

Trubisky signed with the Bills on the same day that the franchise made several key departures that saved the team millions against the upcoming cap. Free agency begins next week.

He spent the 2021 season with the Bills. Then, he spent the last two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

However, following the 2023 season, the Steelers released him. During his tenure in the Steel City, he was the backup for the majority of his tenure to quarterback Kenny Pickett.

During his Steelers tenure, he appeared in 12 games. He made seven starts. However, he was just 2-5 as a starter.

Trubisky went 184 of 287 for 1,884 yards. He had eight touchdown passes and 10 interceptions.

In his NFL career, he also appeared in games with the Chicago Bears and the Bills. He previously made six appearances with the Bills. He played in 51 games with the Bears.

He has a 31-26 record in 57 starts as a starter. The majority of his starts came with the Bears from 2017 through 2020.

The 29-year-old — who had a several-week head start on free agency — was the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Since entering the league, he has thrown for 12,536 yards.

He has also thrown 72 touchdown passes and 48 interceptions. However, since 2021, he has thrown just eight touchdown passes with 10 interceptions.
