The Buffalo Bills backup quarterback Mitchell Trubiksy is expected to field several offers to become a starter for the 2022 NFL season, and after a year in the shadows, interested teams will need to speak with his teammates and coaches to get a full assessment of his current worth ethic and talent.

ESPN‘s Jeremy Fowler got a headstart on the scouting and spoke to several members from the Bills franchise, including quarterback Josh Allen, to learn their thoughts on 27-year-old former Chicago Bears starter, and what it was like working with him day in and day out.

During a preseason game against the Bears, Trubisky completed 20 of 28 passes for 221 yards and a touchdown. But throughout the regular season, while Allen remained healthy, Trubisky was used sparingly, completing a total of 6-of-8 passes for 75 yards with one interception, along with 24 rushing yards and touchdown, per NBC Sports.

Fowler wrote that Allen was “eager” to discuss Trubisky, as he “absolutely fell in love with the dude.” The Bills star couldn’t but admire how Trubisky handled going from Chicago’s first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, a Pro Bowl selection in his sophomore year, to eventually getting benched by then-coach Matt Nagy in Year 4.

“Mitch has been through the ringer,” Allen said. “No. 2 pick, how he handled being a professional, coming into a situation where you never thought you’ll be in that situation, that’s not easy. But he handled it with such class.”

“The dude is an athlete,” Allen continued, giving Trubisky an A+ rating. “I don’t think people really understand that. You give him leeway in an offense to have that mindset of, ‘See it, do it, we trust you.’ He’s going to kill it.”
