2. The Chicago Bears should trade Robert Quinn because his stock is high

Sure, it’s been great to see Quinn’s resurgence this year and the Bears defense has definitely been better with him on the field. But, because of his play, his stock is also higher than it’s ever been with the Bears. Because of that, his trade value is sky high as well.

Quinn has registered 4.5 sacks on the season, and as a matter of fact, Sunday against the Raiders was the first game on the season in which he hadn’t checked that column in the box score. Still, he is pacing for 15.0 sacks on the year, which would be an unbelievable number considering how last season went for him.

In five games, Quinn has also registered 10 pressures. He is now on pace to reach 34 on the season, which would be one short of his career-high back in 2019. The sacks have been nice to see, but Quinn is winning regularly and putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

With the type of play we’ve seen from Quinn so far, he could certainly be dangled out there for another contending team to try and snag.
