Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles has been coming up with “creative” ways to get the team more picks in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
Rumors have been circulating the past few weeks the Bears might be trying to trade linebacker Robert Quinn for more picks. Tuesday night, reports came out the Bears were not activley trying to trade Quinn, who broke the Franchises single-season sack record in 2021 with 18.5 takedowns.
The Bears are not currently shopping Robert Quinn, per source.

Quinn said in an espn article published Tuesday that he wanted to remain in Chicago and didn’t suspect he would be traded, but that the NFL is a “crazy business.” This is good news for Bears fans who’d like to keep the productive defender. He’s a leader on the defense, and Quinn said he belives the team has high expectations for the upcoming year.
However, the Bears could certainly use more draft picks and Quinn should be able to gain a valuable pick from a team in need of a serious pash rush. The 3-time pro bowl athlete will be 32 heading into the 2022 season, and one wonders how many peak seasons the vet has left.
