The Chicago Bears after a blowout against the New England Patriots on the road surprised there fans earlier this afternoon. The Chicago Bears traded veteran defensive end Robert Quinn to the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. The Bears are reshaping their team for the long term. Here are my takes on the trade , and how it impacts the Monsters of the Midway
Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles made a smart move today that Bears fans can respect. I like this trade a lot for Chicago. Philadelphia sends a fourth round pick for a aging defensive talent. The Bears were rumored to consider trading Quinn during the preseason, but decided to wait. Fourth round picks are valuable in the NFL where teams find gems that impact their teams. The Bears have a great history recently of great players taken in the fourth round of the NFL Draft.
The Bears should make a few more trades with players in contract years that don’t fit the vision of the future of this team. I think that approach is smart to at least get something of value for a player that could walk into free agency. Ryan Poles showed he is smart in his draft strategy. The Bears got another draft pick , and I see them adding more before the next NFL draft in 2023. Thank for your time in Chicago Robert Quinn, but fly like an Eagle to Philly as the Bears are moving forward
