was Quinn worth keeping more than Mack?
I was convinced Quinn was a goner before the trade deadline but considering how little he’s shown this year I don’t know who would want him now.I think Quinns contract is easier to manage after this year compared how Mack's was
With a bad free agency lots of cap space to spend and a talentless team this is prob best case scenario. Might be possible getting a comp pick for him if he doesn’t hit fa until 2024 assuming they spend allot of the cap space in 2023. Idt he’s done much for trade value rnNo. Aside from the one obvious play this year I don’t think he’s done anything special. Good yes. Special no. A player who wants that much money should stand out consistently week to week. I forget he’s on the field sometimes.
I’m predicting the franchise tag. The Bears certainly don’t want to lose him next year but I don’t think they want to commit long term either. And I don’t think he’s worth enough to be trade bait either. He plays next year on the tag and they let him walk the next year in free agency when hopefully they have a young guy waiting in the wings.
EDIT: and before someone chimes in here… yes, I’m very aware he leads the league in tackles. I kind of wonder if that’s a reflection of the team not being able to stop the run? So maybe he’s out there more?
Literally second ing this emotionI'll go on record. I want the Bears to pay Roquan. This team is so devoid of talent, why do we want to create more holes? I understand it's a position that people deem not worth of paying, but he's the best player on defense besides maybe the resurgence of Eddie Jackson. They should have paid him this year with whatever cap they had and gotten as much guaranteed money out of the way. Poles should go to Roquan, tell him to hire an agent and the Bears will split the fee with him. Gives Roquan someone in his corner who is going to be able to level set with him on his value and what other teams would pay him and maybe the Bears get a little bit of a break.
I think he will get franchise tagged next year and then will leave in free agency.
