The Chicago Bears needed help with generating pass rush and found it
Can you believe how lucky the Chicago Bears were to land Robert Quinn? Quinn is no spring chicken, but from a pass rush perspective, he is a huge upgrade over Leonard Floyd. Everyone needs to understand that Floyd is not a bad football player. He just does not excel at rushing the passer. It is possible he was playing out of position and would excel more as an inside linebacker instead. That said, the Bears could not pay him $13 million dollars to play inside in 2020.
When it comes to Quinn, I say it over and over again. He had more sacks last season than Floyd has had in his first four years in the NFL. Yep, you read it right. He has more sacks in one season than Floyd’s entire career.
Adding Quinn opposite of Khalil Mack could bring a lot of torture to every team the Bears face in 2020. With a healthy Akiem Hicks, I could see the Chicago Bears having more sacks in 2020 than the team did in 2018. The team was third in the NFL that year with 50 sacks. Is it possible they find a way to reach 60? No matter what, I see the Chicago Bears front seven as one of the best in the NFL, if not the best.
