Guys like Robert Quinn have to get frustrated from time to time. He’s good enough to be on most of the rosters in the NFL, but for whatever reason, lately, there seems to be an issue with finding a home and staying there. He’s like Ndamukong Suh (he could be placed on this list too).
We know they can play, but after beginning his career with what was then the Saint Louis Rams and spending two seasons in Los Angeles (that’s seven seasons total), Quinn’s morphed into being a bit of a journeyman. Whoever he signs with for the 2020 season will be his third stop in three seasons. On top of that, he’s ventured past 30 years of age, and regression may come sooner rather than later.
As most of you know, Chris Harris was on the Eagles’ radar as last season’s trade deadline approached. Philly thought the asking price was too high, and for that reason, the ‘Birds’ decided to cease their pursuit.
Here we are months later, and we’re back to the conversations about this guy. The price tag will still be enormous except this time we’re talking about a long-term deal as opposed to what Philly would be willing to give up in a trade.
The biggest concern about signing Harris for several years is this. Sure, he’ll be good for a while, but he is 31 and human. Any long deal could wind up as one that’s not so good looking on the back end when Harris is closer to 35 than 30.
