Chicago Bears trade star defensive end Robert Quinn to Philadelphia Eagles, reports NFL Network.
According ESPN, the Eagles would have offered a fourth-round pick in return. The Eagles are a perfect 6-0 record but they are ready to take the necessary steps to continue improving.
Quinn has only had one sack so far this season but had 18.5 sacks last season, an organizational record in one campaign.
The Bears are in the process of rebuilding and are 3-4. This is likely not to be their last staff move by the November 1 trade deadline. According to Yahoo! Sportsthey are open to negotiations in the case of linebacker Roquan Smith, safety Eddie Jackson and running back David Montgomery for example.
Speaking of Smith, he was very emotional when he learned of his teammate’s departure on Wednesday.
Quinn signed a five-year, $70 million deal with the Bears in 2020. He previously played for the Dolphins and Cowboys.
