Robert Quinn decision to skip Chicago Bears’ spring workouts was widely interpreted as a portent of things to come. The 32-year-old pass rusher is nearing the end of his playing days. He still lacks a championship ring. With the team on the verge of a major overhaul, it’s understandable that he’d want to be traded. Ideally, he should be able to compete for a championship somewhere.
However, there was #94 waiting for the start of training camp on July 27th. Even though Quinn wasn’t on the field, he was present and engaged in the drills that took place. No one would be left behind.

For many, it was a welcome surprise. A lot of people and the media speculated about whether or not he would try to protect himself from injury until the Bears handed him his desired outcome. As it turns out, he wasn’t looking for what everyone thought he was. During a conference call with the media on Wednesday, the Pro Bowler explained his position on the trade rumours.
Quinn didn’t come across as a man who was eager to go out of town. He’s not to a fault. He has been a member of the Rams, Dolphins, Cowboys, and Bears since 2017. It’s exhausting for him and his family to be uprooted on a nearly annual basis.
Even while he values victory over his rivals, he’d prefer to try to achieve so in Chicago while he still has the chance rather than risk another relocation. He likes the city and appreciates the structure it provides. His first opportunity to play in defence he’s familiar with will be an added bonus.
Ryan Poles, the team’s general manager, said he has had no discussions with Quinn about a possible trade. He and head coach Matt Eberflus want the defensive end to play in this position. That has always been their position.
It doesn’t sound like a trade is going to materialise, given the circumstances and Quinn’s own words. There’s a chance that may alter in a matter of months. Teams may be interested in trading for him if the Bears have a bad start. It may be in everyone’s best interest at that point.

The Bears’ lone true stud up front is Robert Quinn
That became apparent following the departures of Akiem Hicks in free agency and the trade of Khalil Mack. After trading him, the Bears will have no one to which offences must pay attention. Despite a strong showing last year, Trevis Gipson is not the player he was.
Al-Quadin Muhammad is in the same boat. As an interior presence, Justin Jones isn’t quite Aaron Donald. The defence would be significantly weakened if Quinn were to be traded. It may be worth the short-term setback if the offer is strong enough. Last year, the Rams traded Von Miller to the Broncos for second and third-round draught picks.
This kind of deal would have to be considered by the Bears if they received it from another team. Otherwise, Robert Quinn would be a good fit for them. Without knowing where the offensive is, they’ll need a strong defence.
It appears he’s back to his old self after a strong start to training camp. If it stays true this season, the pass rush should be excellent. That will make seeing their retooled secondary even more exciting.
