Robert Quinn, a seasoned pass rusher with the Chicago Bears, was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.

Under the condition that Quinn clears a physical, the trade's terms were announced by both teams on Wednesday afternoon.

Quinn joined the Bears in April 2020 after agreeing to a five-year, $70 million contract as an undrafted free agent. 

Quinn's 2022 pay will be mostly covered by the Bears, according to a league source who spoke with ESPN.

Bears general manager Ryan Poles said, "Obviously, part of the challenging thing with this job and the position are the tough decisions you have to make."

"I almost think there's the human element, the emotional side, where you realize you're touching not just a man but also his family.

You're sort of upsetting everything, and I'm sensitive to that and don't take it lightly at all.

Additionally, you are aware that you are changing the structure of your locker room, and that is also a huge matter.

And from a financial perspective, it just made too much sense for what we're trying to accomplish and will enable us to keep building a roster that is highly competitive.
