Robert Quinn Eagles, Bears trade grades: Philly deals star defensive end for fourth-round draft pick

Unfailing Philadelphia Eagles 2022 was the talk of the NFL during the early part of the regular season, and it was in large part due to several impactful moves they made during the offseason. However, the Eagles did not add to their roster as a team declared They traded a fourth-round pick on Wednesday Chicago Bears Robert Quinn in exchange for defensive end.

The pass-rusher has recorded eight combined tackles and one sack in seven games played. Although Quinn is 32 years old, he is still an impact player. Last season, he recorded 18.5 sacks in 16 games played and was named to the Pro Bowl and given All-Pro honors.

Former no. 14 overall pick by St. Louis Rams Out of North Carolina in 2011. Quinn posted double-digit sack numbers in three of his first four NFL seasons, including 19 sacks in 2013. Miami Dolphins In 2018, and Dallas Cowboys In 2019. After those two one-year stints, Quinn signed with the Bears ahead of the 2020 season.

For NFL Media, the Bears are paying Quinn $7.1 million of his remaining base salary this season. He has two years remaining on his five-year, $70 million contract, and Philly picks up $14M in 2023 and $13M in 2024 in non-guaranteed base salaries. Philly currently has Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat at defensive end. Added 5.5 sacks in six games played. Quinn would fit right in with this talented defense.

Here’s how we grade this trade:

Eagles: A-

Come on, Howie Roseman. The move shows the Eagles are all in on winning a Super Bowl. Remember how the Rams added Von Miller at last year’s trade deadline? Not that Quinn Miller is, but the move is similar. As Philly hits the ground running ready to continue its bye week, it could be one that will fuel the talented defense even better. Quinn isn’t a spring chicken, but he showed last year that he’s still an impact player.

Philly gets a veteran pass-rusher who can go around Graham and sweat. A fourth-rounder would be a nice price to pay for a 32-year-old, but the Bears are happy to pay Quinn the rest of his base salary of $7.1 million this year.

Bears: B-

With this move, the Bears seem to be putting more on the plates of Dominique Robinson and Travis Gibson. There were bears It is said to be shopping Quinn’s trade deadline approached this month, and they found a willing partner in the Eagles. A fourth-rounder for Quinn seems solid at face value, but it could have been a fifth if the Bears hadn’t paid Quinn $7.1 million of his remaining base salary this season. The Bears are currently in the top 10 in available cap space with $6.69 million. An over the cap. Quinn is a good player, but one of these younger guys could be a solid starter at defensive end.
