Chicago Bears who need bounce back seasons in 2021: Robert Quinn

There may be no player on this roster who needs a bounce back season more than Robert Quinn. After signing a monster contract last year, Quinn came up with just 2.0 sacks on the year — the lowest total of his entire career.

We’re talking about a guy who was coming off a year where he amassed 11.5 sacks with the Dallas Cowboys and has three other double-digit sack years in his career as well.

Even before the season began, Quinn was struggling with an injury. So, his status was in question going into Week 1. That ankle injury could have been what lingered all year long in 2020, preventing Quinn from fully breaking loose.

Bears fans are hoping that this was indeed the case and that Quinn goes into the 2021 campaign fully healthy. If we get a chance to see the type of player he was in 2019, paired up with Khalil Mack, this Bears pass rush could be quite scary.
