Are the Chicago Bears giving up on the 2022 NFL season?
They are now at 2-4 after a three-game losing streak.
Worst yet, they are struggling on both ends of the field.
Their inconsistencies could be the reason for their rebuild.
But for the transition to commence, the Bears are shopping pass rusher Robert Quinn.

An excerpt from Jason La Canfora’s article shared above reads, “The Chicago Bears are a mess again, and they are in a rebuild even if they don’t want to admit it, although pawning off Khalili Mack should have been evidence enough.”
It continued with, “Now after the Bears told teams through the offseason that they didn’t want to part with Robert Quinn, their other veteran pass rusher, multiple NFL executives (speaking on the condition of anonymity because they are not permitted to discuss players on other rosters) told me Quinn is indeed being shopped around with the trade deadline a few weeks away.
The two-time All-Pro will generate much interest from other teams.
In return, the Bears will stockpile assets, especially draft picks, to help build their squad.
Trading him also increases the Bears chances of getting the top overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Which Team Will Land Quinn?
It remains to be seen how Quinn’s situation will unfold.
But it’s definitive that he will be a welcome addition to the team that will acquire him.
The assets Chicago will get in return can jumpstart the rebuilding.
Last season, Quinn earned his second All-Pro nod after tallying 18.5 sacks, 39 solo tackles, and four forced fumbles.
Those numbers also took him to his third Pro Bowl selection.
The team that gets him will have to absorb the remainder of his five-year, $70 million deal signed in 2020.
