Bleacher Report writer believes should offer Robert Quinn

BLEACHER REPORT WRITER BELIEVES ONE NFC TEAM SHOULD MAKE AN OFFER FOR ROBERT QUINN

JUN 20, 2022  (5H47)      V. CARBONNEAU
The NFL has entered a trading frenzy over the last two offseasons. We've never seen so many stars swapping teams as we have recently. The booming salary cap and player empowerment era have forever changed the way the NFL operates.

The constant wave of trades has made the NFL a year-round news producer. With training camp quickly approaching this summer, more deals will happen. It's just a matter of time until we see the next deal struck.

One player that a lot of people expect to be traded is Bears EDGE Robert Quinn.

Well, if you ask Ian Wharton of Bleacher Report, the Arizona Cardinals should be the team to acquire him, or at least try to do so.

Cardinals get: Edge Robert Quinn

Bears get: 2023 third-round pick, WR Andy Isabella


This time last year, it had seemed as though Chicago Bears edge-rusher Robert Quinn had the worst contract in the NFL. He had turned 31 during the offseason and was coming off a season with two sacks. With an $11.3 million cap hit in 2021 and a $17.1 million cap hit in 2022, it was feasible that Chicago would be stuck with the albatross deal until next season.

Much has changed in one calendar year. Quinn was a rare bright spot on the Bears as he racked up 18.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in 16 games. He played as well as he ever has, which is impressive since he has 101 career sacks.

Now, Quinn is a valued commodity despite his $12.8 million base salary. He'd be an incredible addition at this point of the offseason since the free-agent market is filled with pass-rushers clearly out of their prime. Quinn did not attend the team's mandatory minicamp this week, so it's clear a rift is present.

The best landing spot for the veteran is in Arizona. The Cardinals did not replace Chandler Jones with a high-impact talent.

Their current rotation features veterans Markus Golden and Devon Kennard, plus rookies Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders. Golden has hit double-digit sacks three times since 2016 but also finished the other three years with seven sacks combined. Consistency and star power are an issue.

J.J. Watt and Budda Baker need more help for this defense to become playoff-worthy. Adding Quinn would achieve that.
