Ryan Pace told Mitch Trubisky to pick a restaurant and make the reservation.
The Bears general manager wanted his March 2017 dinner with the North Carolina quarterback to stay under the radar. When Trubisky booked a table at Bin 54, a Chapel Hill, N.C., steakhouse, he used an alias:
“The last Super Bowl quarterback of the Chicago Bears,” Trubisky said.
Friday night, Trubisky finally got to meet McMahon. Amazingly, the confab marked a gathering of the Bears’ two most recent Pro Bowl quarterbacks — Trubisky as an alternate last season and McMahon in 1985.
