It’s time to get your Mitch Trubisky Chicago Bears jerseys out of the closet

How many of you have a Mitch Trubisky jersey in your closet? I have the 100th anniversary retro jersey in my closet. Seeing the number 10 brings back pain every time I see it. Most of you know that I was and still am a Stan Trubisky. Watching him fail here in Chicago wasn’t fun, but I’m pretty grateful for the Chicago Bears drafting Justin Fields last year. Fields’ ceiling is much higher than Trubisky’s and I think it’s safe to assume that Trubisky will be a backup for the rest of his career.

Last year I could have turned my Mitch Trubisky jersey into a Damiere Byrd jersey, but what fun or good would that have been? Obviously, I knew Byrd wouldn’t last on this list. Now, however, the Chicago Bears have a new No. 10 and he has a chance to be here for a decent amount of time. Plus, it has the ability to be fun to watch. Ryan Poles traded for Chase Claypool to give Justin Fields an extra weapon. Now we see this weapon in action.

Fans can reuse their Mitch Trubisky Chicago Bears jerseys thanks to Chase Claypool

I wouldn’t expect Claypool to see a large percentage of snaps this week against Miami. However, I expect to see him on the pitch. If you look at the Chicago Bears depth chart, Chase Claypool is already listed as the third WR in the group. He is ahead of Velus Jones, Jr., Dante Pettis and even N’Keal Harry. Now I just hope the team uses him more effectively than the Pittsburgh Steelers this year and last. We have to see Claypool outside more than in the slot.

With Claypool choosing to wear No. 10, that means we can pull those Mitch Trubisky jerseys out of our closets and recycle them. Yes, you can just buy a new jersey with the Claypool name on the back. Why then when you can just replace the name by purchasing a custom nameplate to assemble over the current one? You can also use the old duct tape route if you wish. There’s no guarantee that Claypool will work here and you might need to replace the jersey in a few years anyway.
