NFL Network’s Ian Rappoport announced today that the Bears have signed pass-rusher Robert Quinn to a five-year, $70 million dollar contract with $30 million dollars guaranteed.
Robert Quinn comes to the Bears after having 11.5 sacks and 26 tackles with the Cowboys last season.
Rappoport also reported that the Bears will release Leonard Floyd. The former first-round pick underperformed and this gives the Bears more opportunities as the offseason moves along.
The Bears have added a viable pass rusher opposite of Khalil Mack. Its safe to say that the addition of Quinn makes Mack, and the rest of the Bears’ pass rush, much more dangerous than ever before.
The release of Leonard Floyd doesn’t prove as much surprise. Now, the Bears add the pass-rusher opposite Mack that Pace and company hoped Floyd would eventually become.
