Mitch Trubisky's days as the Bears' starting quarterback appear to be scarce.

The third-year QB out of North Carolina seems to be regressing, despite multiple attempts to fit the system to his skill set. It was only a matter of time before Chicago started contemplating a replacement - insert Teddy Bridgewater.

Bridgewater is deserving of a starting gig and Chicago may be the perfect opportunity. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Bears and Bridgewater are having discussions to bring him to Chicago.

If a deal is made, the Saints QB has a very strong chance of surpassing Trubisky and becoming the Bears' day-one starter. This could be massive for a Chicago team needing a quarterback upgrade:

The Bears will be a major NFC contender next season if they can get this deal done. Bridgewater seems to just be scratching the surface in regards to his potential.

The Saints QB was 5-0 for New Orleans last year as Drew Brees dealt with an injury. Bridgewater threw for 1,384 yards and nine touchdowns with just two picks during that span. In comparison, Trubisky threw for 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 16 games last year.

Bridgewater could be on his way to Chicago by the end of the week.
