Bears pass rusher Robert Quinn was the subject of trade rumors in April and that topic is likely to come up again this summer.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Quinn is not expected to take part in the team’s mandatory minicamp this week. There’s no word on whether in is an excused or unexcused absence for the veteran edge defender.

Quinn said in April that he was not looking to jump to another team, but referenced the Khalil Mack trade and said he didn’t like the term rebuilding as the Bears move forward with a new head coach and General Manager. That was followed by a report that the Bears were not actively shopping Quinn and that wasn’t stopping other teams from monitoring the situation to see if Quinn would be moved.

Quinn had 18.5 sacks for the Bears last season, so it is no surprise that other teams would have interest in adding him to their pass rush. We’ll see if someone makes the Bears the right offer in the coming weeks.

  1. Rams get Robert Quinn. Bears get Van Jefferson and pay part of Quinn’s salary. Who says no?

  2. @chickensalad that’s not too bad of a trade. Guess depends on how much salary they’d have to pay. Broncos got a 2nd and 3rd for Von Miller by paying his salary.

  3. But he will report elsewhere for training camp. Poles needs to keep cleaning up Pace’s mess.

  4. “Rams get Robert Quinn. Bears get Van Jefferson and pay part of Quinn’s salary. Who says no?”

    Why would the Rams send a budding, prolific WR to obtain an aging veteran who may have one year of gas left?

  5. “Why would the Rams send a budding, prolific WR to obtain an aging veteran who may have one year of gas left?”

    Because the Rams are trying to win back to back Superbowls and Quinn just shattered Richard Dent’s sack record.

    Trade him, never understood why they signed him.

    =======================================

    Yeah, me either. He only had 18.5 sacks last season.

  7. The Cowboys could use his services again. Stephen Jones only shops at the dollar tree though.

    And just about as many neutral zone infractions – looking straight down the line at the ball. You can have him for your team, make an offer.
