Oddmakers Pick Likeliest Robert Quinn Trade Destination


Anybody with common sense sees the writing on the wall. This is likely the last season Robert Quinn will be in a Chicago Bears uniform. It is only a matter of time before he ends up somewhere else. The 32-year-old pass rusher doesn’t have many good years left. He’d prefer not to spend them on a team that is rebuilding. One can respect that. This is part of why he chose to sit out mandatory minicamps. He may choose to play when given no choice, but it’s obvious he would prefer to play elsewhere.

GM Ryan Poles is ready to oblige that request. So much has been rumored for weeks. The issue is he won’t do so unless he feels the offer is strong enough. The man isn’t prepared to unload a double-digit sack guy for nothing. The Bears have leverage in this too. His contract still has three years left, and most of the guaranteed money has been paid. So the acquiring team wouldn’t be on the hook for much. It comes down to need and fit. According to FOX Bet, there is one team to watch in the coming weeks as a likely landing spot.

Cowboys: +250
Packers: +300
Colts: +400
Dolphins: +500
Chiefs: +700

Robert Quinn to the Cowboys is an easy sell.

Their pass rush situation took a significant hit this offseason when defensive end Randy Gregory slipped away to Denver. Now they’re hoping one of Dorance Armstrong, Dante Fowler, or rookie Sam Williams can fill the void left behind. Either that or they’ll have to consider shifting Micah Parsons to edge rusher to play across from Demarcus Lawrence. That is something they’d prefer to avoid.

Acquiring Robert Quinn makes total sense. He’d be a perfect complement to Lawrence and allow Parsons to play his original linebacker position. It would make the Cowboys’ defense significantly stronger and ready to battle the Philadelphia Eagles for superiority in the NFC East. Best of all? Quinn has already played there before. He had an excellent season in 2019 with the Cowboys prior to joining the Bears. They even have enough cap space to accommodate his contract for this season. It comes down to whether Jerry Jones is willing to pay the Bears’ price.

Zero chance GB ever sees help from Bears so Vegas lost it’s cred ! They also left off the obvious Rams since they will need a Miller replacement ! And if they are in race AZ will need help too ! Even to a lesser degree Raiders are a option depending on how they find pass rush working and standing in AFC west early season ?

Go over to Spotrac and look at the contracts for top edge players. Teams are paying $20-25 million a year for players who have yet to perform like Quinn. What is the point of trading him? I have not seen any indication that there are any offers that align to his production/value.

@triplehatche, nowhere does it say trading him to the packers. Those teams and numbers are ratings he’s quoting from Fox Bet on where he is likely to be traded to.

And no line for “Stays in Chicago”?
I’m out.

I’m going to take this analysis with a grain of salt. This guy is smoking something good if he think’s there’s any chance we trade him to the Packers. Maybe for two 1st round picks but Poles isn’t dumb enough to accept anything less to give him to a division rival.
