Chicago Bears: 5 players who disappointed in 2020
By Joseph Herff
Robert Quinn | Chicago Bears Outside Linebacker
After the 2019 season, the Bears released former first-round pick outside linebacker Leonard Floyd due to his inability to generate any pressure as an edge rusher. Ryan Pace aimed to upgrade that position this offseason by adding Robert Quinn to a big contract. Quinn had a monstrous season in Dallas and earned a big deal.
That contract didn’t pan out at all. Quinn hardly saw the field much as he split time with Barkevious Mingo, a former first-round pick on a cheap contract. He finished the season with two sacks and six quarterback hits. For reference, the season before he had 11.5 sacks and 22 quarterback hits. The make matters worse, Floyd finished the season with 10.5 sacks and 19 quarterback hits.
Hopefully, the next defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears can get through to Quinn. Getting him back in form is crucial next season. The tandem of him and Khalil Mack is unbelievable on paper. Now, they need to get it to work.
