Press Conference: Cameron Meredith Talks Working with Trubisky in Offseason
New Year’s Day marked the beginning of what’s gearing up to be one of the most important offseasons for the Chicago Bears in some time. As players were cleaning out their lockers, the media caught up with some players to preview the offseason.
Wide receiver Cameron Meredith is sure to be an important tool for the Bears offense next season. Meredith didn’t play a regular-season snap this year after tearing his ACL in the third preseason game. He’s four months into his rehab, and he’s gearing up for a return with Chicago. Meredith talked about the bright future ahead for the Bears, which includes younger players like his quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
“We’re going to try and get together as much as possible in the offseason,” Meredith said.
Meredith touched upon Trubisky’s 12 starts, which gives him so valuable experience heading into his first offseason as a starting quarterback in the NFL. “He’s not a rookie anymore,” Meredith said.
Meredith also commented about the things that have impressed him with Trubisky, including his leadership and talent.
“He can run that ball, he can throw it, he’s poised in the pocket,” Meredith said. “He has a lot of good tools to have for your first year being a quarterback (in the NFL). The sky’s the limit for him.”
