Before restructuring Quinn’s contract, the Bears had just $800,000 in cap space. Now, Chicago has freed up $3.5 million in cap room.
Quinn signed a five-year, $70 million deal back in 2020. And while the contract looked like a complete waste last season, as Quinn struggled and finished with a career-low 2.0 sacks.
It looks better this season as Quinn has gotten off to an impressive start through five games, where he has 15 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and anchors a dynamic pass rush duo with Khalil Mack.
The #Bears restructured the contract of pass-rusher Robert Quinn, source said, to create $3,512,500 in cap room. Previously, they had only $800,000 of room and simply needed more to operate. Chicago now has moved $30.93M into future caps.
