NFL free agency is less than a week away and Mitchell Trubisky is one player that'll receive a lot of interest in a shallow quarterback class. Although he spent the 2021 campaign in a backup role for the Buffalo Bills, management had nothing but praise for him, which will go a long way in attracting potential suitors.

Trubisky has a 29-21 record in 50 career starts, having completed 64.1% of passing attempts for 10,652 yards and 64 touchdowns to 38 interceptions. A former Pro-Bowler, he's a solid option for any quarterback-needy team, even if he's just a stop-gap.

Here are the three most likely Trubisky destinations in 2022 NFL free agency.

Mitchell Trubisky Free Agency

1. Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts surprised the football world this week when they traded away QB Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders after just one season with the team. Sam Ehlinger is currently atop the Colts' quarterback depth chart, but he isn't ready for a full-time starting job just yet. That's one reason why they should consider signing Trubisky to a short-term deal. Another is that Indianapolis could give him a chance to succeed like the Chicago Bears couldn't. The Colts' O-Line is among the best in the league, offering Trubisky his best shot at success — especially if the team can add more NFL-ready wide receivers. It's an option worth exploring for both sides.

2. New York Giants

Although rumors aren't a guarantee, they give us a good idea of what could happen. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported Wednesday that the New York Giants are one team that will pursue Trubisky in free agency. On one hand, a deal could be used to motivate QB Daniel Jones to play better in his fourth NFL season. On the other hand, Trubisky has a connection with Giants head coach Brian Daboll from their team with the Bills. Everyone knows the impact that Daboll had on Josh Allen's career and even though Trubisky isn't as skilled as the former, playing for someone he's familiar with could be exactly what he needs.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking for a new quarterback following Ben Roethlisberger's retirement and Trubisky could be a suitable replacement. For starters, he already has more NFL experience and success than Mason Rudolph, who's currently QB1 on Pittsburgh's depth chart. Trubisky will also have access to an offense that includes Diontae Johnson, Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth, which would easily be the best group he's played with as a starter. Yes, the Steelers must improve their mediocre offensive line, but Trubisky's mobility will help compensate for that. There aren't too many QB options out there if Pittsburgh wants to remain competitive. Taking a flyer on the 27-year-old veteran is a no-brainer.
