Philadelphia Eagles Add Pass Rusher Robert Quinn in Trade
The Philadelphia Eagles are going all in on this season.
Howie Roseman has added pass rusher Robert Quinn from the Chicago Bears. While he has just one sack so far this season, he had 18.5 in 2021, giving the Eagles defense another edge rusher.
In exchange for Quinn, the Eagles are sending the Bears a fourth-round pick, per Adam Schefter from ESPN.
Per Mike Garaflo of the NFL Network, the Bears will be picking up most of the remaining salary for Quinn, meaning this will cost the Eagles draft capital but not a lot of money.
Adding the 32-year old Quinn gives the Eagles another player who can rush the passer, likely as a situational pass rusher, rotating with Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat to give the Eagles another top-level edge rusher.
With Derek Barnett lost for the season, Quinn will take many of the snaps that he would have gotten, as many of the snaps have gone to Haason Reddick, Brandon Graham, and Josh Sweat. Now they add a player who has 102 career sacks in to the fold.
