What do Chicago Bears fans do when their team stinks and begins 0-3 on the year?

We either start to look ahead (what we do best) or find some time to look back, because the present is far too much to withstand at the moment.

With that in mind, there are some former Bears players who are still out there looking for a job. Could it be the end of the road for these guys, or would a team give them one more shot?

1. Robert Quinn, DE

Robert Quinn may be the biggest mirage in the history of this franchise. He was signed to a massive contract back in 2020, in which he responded by failing to show up that entire first year in Chicago. He then followed it up with one of the best seasons of his career in 2021, when he broke the Bears' single-season sack record, posting 18.5 in total.

After a record-breaking 2021 campaign, Quinn went on to be traded in 2022, to the Philadelphia Eagles where he recorded zero sacks after having just one all season with the Bears to that point of being traded.

Now, people are wondering whether or not this is the end of the road for the longtime veteran. At 33 years old, it just might be. Maybe, come toward the end of the season, a team calls him about hopping aboard as an extra rotational pass rusher en route to a Super Bowl run. But, he doesn't appear to be someone you can count on week-in and week-out any longer.
