After Derek Barnett suffered a season-ending ACL injury in Week 1, there’s been a dropoff in production after Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat at the position, and Quinn will absorb the snaps used by Patrick Johnson and Tarron Jackson.
He was released on Wednesday as well.
With the move now official, here’s how Quinn’s arrival will impact the Eagles.

Philadelphia gets Quinn for the rest of 2022 and depending on how he performs, there’s a possibility for a contract restructure and Quinn returning to the team on a year-to-year basis.
