it appears Robert Quinn, DE/OLB is available via trade with the Bears

3rd strikes me as too high


the good: 18.5 sacks last year

the bad: 32 years old.

the contract: $13mm, $14mm, $13mm for the next three seasons -- no guaranteed money


FWIW: the Cards passed on giving 32 year old Chandler Jones what the Raiders did -- effectively a 2 year, $16mm a year deal / $20mm guaranteed

I'm with it for a 3rd. This is one of those positions by which we'll be cursing profusely over if we don't address it. I've always been of the mindstate that 1st and 2nd round draft choices are the ones to be thrifty over. For a plug and play pass rusher that can step right in? sign me up!

Yeah, you easily offer a third despite his age (a good pass rusher can still be highly productive to at least 34). Anyone who thinks differently and was in the camp of keeping Chandler Jones, needs to backtrack. The draft is a crapshoot despite the best efforts of mice and men. Look, finding anyone now with a legit threat of getting to the QB are slim to none and boom you can get a guy like Quinn... just do the trade, like we are in any position to milk the value right now lol

He's the best pass rusher available at this point. I'd make a play for him if I was ARZ.
Exactly, Bertrand Berry and Dwight Freeney both were worth acquiring despite their age. Heck, we threw down for Watt with injury concerns and we have the money to do this. If a trade is possible, I am sure the Cards have inquired but they need to get serious about this

Age wasn't an issue with Berry who was 29 when he signed as a FA.

And our needs at NT and CB supersede pass rush at this point. IMO.
