Mitch Trubisky exited the Bears’ offseason program without a contract, but that seems to not be a big deal.
Trubisky took part in veteran minicamp this week at Halas Hall and previously hadn’t sounded worried or miffed that he hadn’t signed yet. Coach John Fox echoed that sentiment on Thursday.
“Not really,” Fox said when asked if he was concerned about Trubisky not having signed yet. “In today's climate as opposed to say 10 years ago it's completely different. I know there was holdout a year ago but I don't expect to see any of that this year.”
The holdout Fox referred to is the Los Angeles Chargers’ Joey Bosa, 2016’s No. 3 pick who didn’t sign a contract until late August last year.
Trubisky and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes have yet to sign, while fellow first-round quarterback DeShaun Watson signed with the Houston Texans in May.
Last week, Trubisky brushed off a question about why he hasn’t signed yet.
“That's not really for me to worry about,” Trubisky said. “I’m going to be out here at practice everyday. My agent and the Bears organization is going to handle that. But I'm not really sure how that stuff works. I'm here to play football, I'm not worried about contracts.”
