The Bear market is a good one for pass-rushers

According to NFL Network, the Bears are signing Cowboys free agent defensive end Robert Quinn.

Quinn’s getting a five-year, $70 million deal, with $30 million guaranteed.

Quinn made his money with an 11.5-sack season for the Cowboys, after coming over in the Dolphins fire sale. The 29-year-old has 80.5 career sacks in nine seasons.

Now, he’ll replace Leonard Floyd on a Bears defense that was already good.

  1. I’m happy for him but don’t really get it from the Bears perspective. You already have a top five defense. You want to tie up 37 million a year for two pass rushers. I would be looking at qbs and receivers if I was them

  2. Twisting this into a Cowboys story. Now that the new CBA doesn’t suspend players for testing positive for marijuana, Randy Gregory should be back in the starting lineup and would occupy the right defensive end position vacated by Robert Quinn’s departure.

  3. The Bears were already paying that money to Floyd. By cutting Floyd and signing Quinn, they save money this year to upgrade at QB. The Jimmy Graham signing probably deserves some criticism, but not the Quinn signing. Bears front 7 on defense is scary good. Offense? Meh.

  4. Mack and Quinn on the outside.

    Hicks and Goldman on the line.

    Trevathan and Roquan Smith in the middle.

    Mitch is going to ride the defensive coat tails into another divisional championship and the playoffs. The Bears schedule is super weak compared to last season.

    Not so fast. Earlier story mentioned same about Josh Gordon that it doesn’t automatically reinstate them because it occurred prior to this agreement. Both players have proven they have addictions. IF weed prevents them from doing their job when it was a condition of employment, I have no faith they will be the same players as they were at their peak.

    Does anything any team do in the entire NFL outside the Pats make sense to you? No cares about your trash input all over this site that is non-stop, get bent corky!

  7. Quinn was as good as advertised last year with Cowboys. No other team was going to match this offer, happy for Quinn that he is getting paid.

  8. This money is so much better spent on Quinn than Floyd.

    Why can’t we spend money on offense better?? Jimmy Graham?!

  9. As a life long Cowboys fan I can honestly say this guy is a player. He never stops and plays hard no matter what uniform he has on. Sorry to see him go for sure.

  10. All these comments about Quinn…you never had him on your fantasy IDP roster. Hasn’t been anywhere near the same player as he was with Rams. He played much better in Dallas than Miami.
