Matt Eberflus on Robert Quinn’s unexcused absence: We hoped that he would be here

Robert Quinn, an edge rusher, didn't attend the Bears' mandatory minicamp. Coach Matt Eberflus stated Tuesday that Quinn's absence wasn't justified.

We hoped that he would be there. Eberflus stated via WGN9 that he is not. Ryan (Poles), the General Manager, and his staff will work through it."

Quinn could be fined by the Bears a maximum $15,980 for the first practice missed, $31,961 the second, and $47,936 the third. This brings the total amount for all three mandatory minicamp days to $95,877.

Quinn, who was the subject of trade rumors earlier in the offseason, is still training on his own. When Eberflus was asked if he'd spoken to Quinn, he said that he wishes Quinn a happy 32nd Birthday.

Eberflus stated that they had spoken to him but that Ryan would be the best person to talk to about being here or not being here.

Quinn enters the third year on a $70 million, five-year contract that he signed prior to the 2020 season. Before setting the franchise record of 18.5 sacks per 16 games in 2021, Quinn had just two sacks during 15 games in 2020.

This was his second-highest career total, behind the Rams' 19 sacks in 2013. Quinn was also selected for his third Pro Bowl selection and was named second-team All Pro.

"It's Rob," safety Eddie Jackson said. "He's been in this league for a while and I'm sure he has his reasons. We're waiting for him to return. We are certain he will return in top-notch (shape).
