As the season nears its halfway mark, the NFL trade deadline is approaching quickly and teams are scrambling to do business. Some of them are desperate to remove high earners and will do everything possible to offer them as trade bait. Others are trying to fill gaps in their rosters with last-minute moves.
So today we’ll look at some of the biggest names who may be on the move before the trade deadline. Many of these athletes are desperate for playing time or contract security. It’s also exciting for fans because of the potential arrival of big stars to their teams, so check out the players who could be trade bait below.
The Bears threw Quinn into the shop window after he failed to recapture his 2020 Pro Bowl form. They hung onto him throughout the offseason because they wanted to give the pass rusher another chance to prove himself. However, he isn’t lighting up Soldier Field like he used to.
Quinn’s production has dropped significantly this season, with him amassing just a single sack in the first six games. Nonetheless, his experience and profile mean that some teams will see him as trade bait. It’s safe to say that the New York Giants may think that he’s worth a gamble. Quinn probably won’t be staying in Chicago for much longer (via CBS Sports).
