The Chicago Bears could trade Robert Quinn to the Atlanta Falcons

Maybe the most intriguing trade of all these is the following deal because the Bears get a significant player in return as well. The Falcons are amidst a tough situation with wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who left the team last year to deal with personal issues. Now, there is speculation that Ridley would return, but if he was traded to a new team.

No one knows just what is going on between Ridley and the Falcons, or if Atlanta has anything to do with what happened last year. However, if he was to commit to playing and the Bears could get him, he’d make this team a heck of a lot better.

In this deal, the Bears send Quinn, a 2022 fifth-round pick and a 2023 third-round pick to Atlanta in exchange for Ridley and a 2022 sixth-rounder.

On his own, Ridley would probably fetch a second-round pick, plus another late-round selection. But, the fact that Atlanta is getting a top defensive player in return lessens the value just a bit. Of course, Quinn’s age makes it so the Bears should still include a couple of picks.

In addition to Ridley, the Bears also get to keep the same amount of picks in this year’s draft, which is very valuable.
