The Chicago Bears are trading pass rusher Robert Quinn to the Eagles in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday. Philadelphia and Chicago each announced the trade, pending a physical, later Wednesday. Quinn, 32, is a three-time Pro Bowler who has played the last two-plus seasons with Chicago, but his name has been attached to trade rumblings dating back to training camp.
Though the Bears (3-4) are coming off an impressive upset win over the New England Patriots on Monday night, they’re sellers ahead of the Nov. 1 trade deadline, while the 6-0 Eagles are reinforcing the NFL’s fourth-ranked defense. Quinn has a base salary this season of $12.8 million and is due $26.8 million in base earnings over the next two seasons. The Bears are paying $7.1 million of Quinn’s remaining base salary this season, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported.
