The Eagles want to leave no doubt that they are going all out to win their second Vince Lombardi Trophy this year, pulling off an impressive trade Wednesday for DE Robert Quinn, according to reports.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Bears have agreed to receive a fourth-round pick in 2023 from the Eagles for the 32-year-old All-Star defender, who will join their roster immediately.
On additional information on the deal, Mike Garafolo reports that Philadelphia will be paying his salary for the rest of the year, a crucial detail to facilitate this important move for them.
Although it hasn’t been the veteran’s most productive season, adding just one sack, Quinn managed to get 18.5 sacks just last year. For that, he was also named to last season’s All-Pro team.
Robert Quinn reinforces the aspirations of the Eagles
If they were already favorites with the undefeated, Philadelphia should be even more so with the defense they’re putting together with this trade. His 17 sacks on the year could be shot to new heights thanks to Robert Quinn, who is one of the great remaining pass rushers in the NFC.
The impact of this defender is such that even his teammates, such as LB Roquan Smith, have shed tears after learning of his departure.
However, he will not be the only great star in this important roster of players, on the contrary, he will join a squad that made this the team to beat in its conference and the most balanced in the entire NFL.
As a result, it’s hard to imagine that he won’t feel well wrapped up in such talent, and even motivation, thanks to his chances of winning the Super Bowl this year.
Perhaps the only but of this news, is that, without a doubt, it will make it more difficult for Philadelphia to justify any result that is not to celebrate another ring in February. Money rarely buys happiness, however, GM Howie Roseman wants to contradict this saying, will he?
