Chicago Bears defensive end Robert Quinn doesn’t want to go anywhere. When asked by the media about a potential trade, Quinn said he wants to remain a Bear.
Quinn signed a five-year, $70 million deal with the Bears in April of 2020. The old regime brought him in to pair with ex-Bear Khalil Mack. Many fans were pleased with the move when it was announced. But Quinn’s first year with Chicago didn’t go according to plan.
His first year with the Bears was pretty abysmal, especially when examining the prior season he played with the Dallas Cowboys. In 2019, Quinn registered 11.5 sacks and was a cornerstone of Dallas’s defense. In his first year with the Bears, he only registered two sacks in 15 games. That was a monumental letdown for Quinn and the team.
Quinn did turn a complete 180 in 2021, however. He registered a Bears’ franchise-record 18.5 sacks and earned a Pro Bowl nod. He was almost unstoppable.
Then, the offseason brought about several trade rumors involving the 10-year veteran. The Bears are going through a rebuild and likely won’t be competitive in 2022. His value is at an all-time high, which is probably why these rumors have popped up.
Regardless of the situation, he’s in, it seems Robert Quinn is committed to the Bears and truly wants to be in Chicago. Only time will tell if he heads elsewhere in a trade. But for now, he’s here and focused on helping this Chicago Bears team to pick up victories.
