Some may be questioning Robert Quinn as a possible trade candidate for the Cowboys. The defensive line is currently playing out of its mind, so why change it? Well, because it’s Robert Quinn. A reunion with the defensive end should be talked about.
Last season, as a 32-year-old, the star pass-rusher accumulated a ridiculous 18.5 sacks, 17 tackles for loss, and four forced fumbles. He’s off to a slower start this year, which could mean the Cowboys could get him at a lower price.
Through five games this season, Quinn has just one sack and 10 pressures for the Bears. PFF has the pass-rusher graded with just a 36.1 defensive grade, making him one of the worst starting players in the league.
These numbers may scare fans away from him, but people forget what Dan Quinn can do with these types of players. He gets the best out of players like this, and adding him to the linebacker and defensive end room could be the less impactful version of the Von Miller midseason addition for the Rams last season.
