Eagles make blockbuster trade for pass rusher Robert Quinn

The Philadelphia Eagles are off to an impressive start to the 2022 season, holding a 6-0 record through the first seven weeks. The Eagles have remained aggressive in pushing toward building on that promising momentum by making a notable move by acquiring star pass rusher Robert Quinn from the Bears in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.

Robert Quinn has built a strong reputation as one of the league’s most dependable pass rushers. He’s coming off another solid campaign, where he posted 18.5 sacks.

The 32-year-old hasn’t put up strong numbers so far this season, posting just 1.0 sacks and six solo tackles through six games played. However, that shouldn’t brush aside what he brings to the table behind his proven track record.

He has 102.0 sacks while posting double-digit single-season sack totals five times. Quinn brings a much-needed veteran presence to the Eagles’ defensive line.

He is currently in the third year of his five-year, $70 million deal that runs through the 2024 campaign. After this season, his cap hit drops to $8.75 million in 2023 and $4.2 million in 2024.

The Eagles are in the middle of the pack this season, recording 17 sacks. The addition of Quinn will certainly help push up that number, as Philadelphia possesses one of the league’s top defenses through the first seven weeks.

The Eagles rank fourth with 17.5 points per contest allowed and total yards allowed per game, fifth against the pass, and 12th against the run. Linebacker Haason Reddick leads the team with 4.5 sacks.
