Bears were bidding against themselves in National Football League draft trade with 49ers

But that doesn't mean folks around the National Football League still aren't trying to piece together what happened Thursday night, when Chicago paid a hefty price to the San Francisco 49ers to move up one spot and grab the inexperienced quarterback.

Trubisky has the tools to develop into a viable National Football League starter, but the Bears are paying Mike Glennon $18.5 million dollars to start this year.

The former Florida quarterback was taken by the Bears 22nd overall in the 2003, the last time Chicago used a first round pick on a quarterback. What makes the pick even more upsetting for Bears fans is that they just signed quarterback Mike Glennon to a three-year deal this offseason. Lynch thought Chicago wanted Thomas, and was comfortable with taking Foster with the third pick.




Until he's ready to be the guy - and eventually, the price the Bears paid means Trubisky will be the guy - Glennon can run the show. The narrative that Pace was bidding against himself to move up is simply false, as is the suggestion that coach John Fox wasn't involved in the evaluation of Trubisky. "It's all anyone is talking about". Fox was briefed once Pace had clarity of the team's options and choices based on the evaluations that the GM, coach and personnel department had made on a variety of players and trade opportunities. Fox is fuming about being left in the dark on the trade (for Trubisky).

Maybe the Trubisky pick will surprise us and work out just fine for Chicago.
