Kendall Wright on Mitch Trubisky: 'He's just a baller'


The Chicago Bears could potential have a quarterback controversy on their hands if rookie Mitch Trubisky plays well once again this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

Wide receiver Kendall Wright knows what it is like to play with a second overall pick in the NFL Draft at quarterback from his days playing with Marcus Mariota in Tennessee.

“Marcus was in a different position where he came in and he was the quarterback,” Wright said, via JJ Stankevitz of CSN Chicago. “I think it’s different. Once Mitch starts playing, whenever he starts playing, he’ll start progressing a lot more because he’ll actually be out there in game-like situations.”

 while Trubisky has been forced to sit and learn behind the likes of Mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez. He has flashed in training camp and the preseason and that has caught the eye of the veteran wideout.,Womens Ryan Tannehill Jersey,Mariota was handed the keys immediately in Tennessee

“(Trubisky) can do it all too,” Wright said. “He’s still learning, he’s still getting better,Womens Kenny Stills Jersey, he’s never complacent. He has the ability to get better and he’s willing to get better. He’s a young guy that listens. He’s just a baller. You put him out there and he makes plays.”

 Trubisky threw for 166 yards while completing 18 of his 25 passing attempts with one touchdown and a quarterback rating of 103.1. Last week against the Arizona Cardinals he completed six of his eight passing attempts for 80 yards with one touchdown and a quarterback rating of 135.4.,In his preseason debut

If the Bears want to provide a spark on offense it makes the most sense to put someone labeled a "baller" out with the first-team offense as soon as possible.
