NFL trade deadline 2022 winners and losers: Bears finally appear ready to build around Justin Fields
The best way to break down something like the 2022 NFL trade deadline is immediately after the trades happen. It's best to have strong, infallible takes in the moment, so let's go over some surefire winners and losers from the NFL trade deadline now that all of the trades have been finalized. This move signals that reinforcements are coming for Fields, he just needs to make it to the end of the season. Sending him to the Jaguars, with a boatload of stipulations on future picks, is ultimately a good move for this team. Smith will get a contract extension barring something unforeseen happening and projects nicely into what the Ravens like to do on defense.wftv.com

Eagles acquire 3-time Pro Bowl DE Quinn from Bears
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — (AP) — The undefeated Philadelphia Eagles acquired three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Robert Quinn from the Chicago Bears on Wednesday. “I think it's another great player on this team,” Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts said. “I know the Eagles are really fortunate to have him,” Bears general manager Ryan Poles said.

Bears LB Roquan Smith fights tears, exits news conference after learning of Robert Quinn trade
The Philadelphia Eagles surprised many with their trade for Chicago Bears pass-rusher Robert Quinn on Wednesday, but few were hit as hard as Quinn's teammate Roquan Smith. After being asked for his opinion on Quinn's three-year tenure in Chicago, Smith struggled for words before requesting a moment to gather his thoughts. Roquan Smith learned of the Robert Quinn trade while speaking to the media. Smith, a former first-round pick, and Quinn have been teammates since the Bears signed Quinn to a five-year, $70 million contract in the 2020 offseason. It's also quite likely Smith could be confronting the fact that a trade may be in his own immediate future.wftv.com
