The Chicago Bears should trade Robert Quinn at the deadline

No one expected Robert Quinn to be having the season he is right now. But, the Bears should definitely take advantage. Quinn started hot and has since cooled down just a little bit, but his trade value is still up there.

On the season, Quinn has 5.5 sacks and has looked much more like his pre-2020 self. When he’s been on the field with Khalil Mack, Quinn has played especially well. The two of them have been one of the best sack duos in football this year.

But, Quinn is also on a massive contract (5-year, $70 million) and the Bears could do without it in the future. They will have plenty of moves to make, and not enough money, as early as next offseason.

If the Bears could trade Quinn to a contender like the Chiefs, Ravens or even one of the more underrated destinations, the Bengals, that would make sense for both sides. Quinn could still net the Bears a fourth or fifth-round pick at this point, and at the same time give them some breathing room within the cap.
