    Ryan Fitzpatrick had the nerdiest offseason job in the NFL

    New Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went to Harvard. You knew that, right? Of course you did! Here’s something you may not have known, that is perhaps connected to his Crimson connection: He’s a Rubik’s Cube enthusiast.

Going into the draft, quarterback was an area of need for the Bears. The signed Mike Glennon to a three year deal, and also brought in veteran Mark Sanchez, but neither of those players are the long term answer for the position, rather a stopgap. Fans and members of the media both expected the Bears come out of the draft with a new quarterback, but not with their first pick. Trubisky is a great prospect, he checks every single box. Great arm? Check.
