Chicago Bears to sign DE Robert Quinn to $70M deal

Defensive end Robert Quinn agreed to join the Chicago Bears on a $70 million deal that gives pass-rushing force Khalil Mack a sidekick.

Multiple outlets reported the deal Tuesday. Quinn can officially sign Wednesday after 4 p.m. ET, when the 2020 league year begins.

Quinn spent last season with the Cowboys, which followed a one-year stint with the Miami Dolphins, and before that was a Pro Bowl right defensive end for the Rams.

Quinn brings a proven pass rusher to the right side of the defensive line opposite Mack and allows the Bears to move on from first-round pick Leonard Floyd, who never panned out as a top-10 pick out of Georgia.

Mack has 61.5 career sacks since he was drafted in 2014.

In 14 games last season with the Cowboys, Quinn had 11.5 sacks. He has 80.5 career sacks since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2011.

The Bears informed Floyd he would be released upon coming to terms with Quinn.

As part of his five-year deal, Quinn will receive $30 million guaranteed.
