New York Giants: 5 offensive free agent targets, including Mitchell Trubisky
By Reese Nasser
Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback
PFF Projected Deal: 2 yrs — $7m avg/yr
Buffalo Bills QB2 Mitch Trubisky could be the free-agent signing that makes the most sense for this Giants offense. The former second-overall pick would not only be a strong backup, but also a great option in case the Giants choose to explore options outside of Daniel Jones.
During his time with the Chicago Bears, Trubisky had a record of 29-21. In his time since entering the NFL in 2017, he has recorded 73 total touchdowns, 10652 passing yards, and 52 turnovers.
Trubisky spending the past season in an offense built by now Giants head coach Brian Daboll is what makes this pairing make sense. Trubisky has already proven to both Daboll and Joe Schoen that he can serve as a reliable backup, something that the Giants have not had in some time.
While Trubisky has had his fair share of issues since entering the league in 2017, he is still arguably the best quarterback on the open market. There is a good chance that he could even be a starter for several teams this upcoming season. The Giants adding him would provide a solid security blanket to their quarterback room.
