Robert Quinn, who was born on May 18, 1990, is a defensive end with the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL). He attended North Carolina for collegiate football and was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Age and High School Career
He’s 32 years old now. In high school, Quinn was a member of the Fort Dorchester Patriots football team in North Charleston, South Carolina. His senior year was cut short when he had brain surgery to remove a benign tumour.
A thorough recovery allowed Quinn to get back on the football field. In the games prior to his surgery, he had 54 tackles, 10 for loss, 5 sacks, and 21 quarterback hurries.
Both Scout.com and Rivals.com listed him as the nineteenth-best defensive end prospect in the country. Furthermore, he won the 4A state championship in the heavyweight division three times. In 2008, he participated in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl as well.
Chicago Football Club
To the tune of $70 million over five years, Quinn agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears on April 1, 2020. When he rejoined the Bears, Quinn reverted to wearing jersey No. 94. In Week 2 of the season, he played his first game with the Bears against the New York Giants.
Due to an ankle ailment, Quinn was out for last week’s game. Quinn made his debut for the Bears with a sack on Daniel Jones during their 17-13 victory. Jones fumbled the ball after being sacked by Quinn, but his teammate Khalil Mack was there to retrieve it.
On Monday Night Football in Week 7 against his previous team, the Los Angeles Rams, Quinn caused a fumble on Robert Woods, which was recovered by Eddie Jackson and turned into a score in the team’s eventual 24-10 loss.
In a 16-14 loss against the Baltimore Ravens the following season, Quinn set a new personal best with 3 1/2 sacks on November 9, 2021. For the month of November, Quinn was honoured as the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Month on December 2nd. He was the Bears’ first player to take home the trophy since Eddie Jackson in 2018.
On December 20th, of this year, Quinn was chosen for his third Pro Bowl. On January 2, 2022, in Week 17 against the New York Giants, Quinn recorded his 18th sack of the season, breaking Richard Dent’s 1984 Bears single-season franchise mark of 17.5 sacks.
At the end of the season, Quinn had 18.5 sacks, falling shy of his previous career high of 19 achieved in 2013. The Associated Press voted Quinn to their second team of All-Pros.
He wed Christina Quinn back in 2013. Including Christina, the couple now boasts two young offspring. Quinn played high school football for the Fort Dorchester Patriots in North Charleston, South Carolina.
Having a benign tumour removed from Quinn’s brain necessitated surgery that cut short his senior year. Robert made a full recovery and was able to get back to playing sports. Subsequently, Robert enrolled at the University of North Carolina.
He placed third in the voting for ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year and was awarded the ACC’s Brian Piccolo Award for the most courageous player. After misleading NCAA investigators about receiving free jewellery and free travel in 2010, Quinn was ruled ineligible for the 2010 season.
Net Worth and Real Estate
In October of 2022, Robert Quinn had a huge $24 million in assets. In 2021, he bought a brand new five-bedroom, 4,300-square-foot residence in Lake Forest so he could be closer to the Bears’ Halas Hall training complex. He spent $2.13 million on a house with a main-level master suite, an open floor plan, two fireplaces, bespoke built-ins, and a main-floor office/den.
There’s a full bar and kitchenette in the house’s basement, too. Robert bought the home a few months after selling his 9,000 square foot, six-bedroom, nine-bathroom Glencoe estate in the French Provincial style.
The Chicago property at Sheridan Road and Sheridan Avenue fetched $3.48 million. He did the same thing with his Los Angeles-area rental home in 2018, charging $25,000.
Located between Calabasas and Thousand Oaks, this estate has seven thousand square feet of living space. In addition, there are five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and spacious modern Mediterranean-style living areas in the mansion.
