Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky joked that he has been “working on my leg just in case” the team needs him to make a bid for the kicking job this offseason.
After last year’s exit from the playoffs due to the disastrous double doink, all eyes are on the Bears kicker this year.
Trubisky said that the nature of the Bears’ competition and the memory of the way last season ended has put the focus on kickers.
“The whole thing behind them has become a fascinating spectacle right now,” Trubisky said, via Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. “That’s even what I’m interested in now. We’re gonna be out at practice, and I’ll be keeping track of who’s making and who’s missing and who’s winning the competition.”
The Bears kickers went 2-of-8 on 43-yard field goals at the end of Friday’s practice.
They were better on Saturday as 6-of-8.
And we’re still talking about kickers.
