NFL News and Notes for Friday, October 28, 2022

With the NFL Trade Deadline set for November 1, general managers around the NFL are trying to determine how they can make their teams better, whether that is bringing in a star for a run at this season or draft capital to help in future years.

With so much excitement around the NFL, let’s take a look at some of the biggest stories from the week.

Bears Trade Quinn To Eagles

On Wednesday, the rebuilding Chicago Bears made headlines by trading defensive end Robert Quinn to the Philadelphia Eagles. In return, the Bears will receive a fourth-round pick.

At 32 years old, Quinn has played in all seven games this season, amassing eight tackles and one sack. This comes a season after finishing with 49 tackles, 18.5 sacks, and four forced fumbles.

For the 3-4 Chicago Bears, this was a luxury that they didn’t really need, and trading him both nets them a draft pick and opens up cap space for next season.

For Philadelphia, they pick up a three-time Pro Bowler on the cheap as the Bears are picking up a large chunk of Quinn’s remaining salary from this year.

The Eagles are currently undefeated and lead the NFC East by a half-game over the New York Giants. The Eagles are the favorites to win the division at -360, and they have the second-best odds of winning the Super Bowl at +550.

Jaguars Trade Running Back Robinson

Quinn wasn’t the only veteran to be traded this week. On Monday, the New York Jets (5-2) acquired running back James Robinson from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a conditional sixth-round pick.

In seven games, the 24-year-old Robinson has rushed 81 times for 340 yards and three touchdowns. He will immediately help the Jets after they lost running back Breece Hall to a season-ending ACL tear.

Off to a surprising start, the Jets still have just the third-best odds of winning the AFC East at +2000.

Chiefs Give Mahomes New Weapon

In one final trade for the week, the Kansas City Chiefs acquired wide receiver, Kadarius Toney, from the New York Giants for a third-round pick and a sixth-round pick.

Toney, selected in the first round of the 2021 draft, just never got his footing with the Giants and has been hampered by injuries this season.

Last year, he had 39 receptions for 420 yards. In just two games this season, he has just two receptions for no yards. Needless to say, even if he had been completely healthy, the 23-year-old has not been happy with his usage.

Now, he will go to the Chiefs, where he hopes being paired with Patrick Mahomes may save his career. He has been out since Week 2, and with the Chiefs on bye in Week 8, he will have a little more time to heal up and make the adjustment to the new team.

Kansas City is currently +700 to win the Super Bowl (third-best odds), while the New York Giants are +4100.

Barrett May Be Done For The Year

According to Ian Rapoport of, it appears that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be without Shaq Barrett for the foreseeable future. In a tweet, Rapoport indicated that the fear is that Barrett “suffered a torn Achilles based on the initial exam.” According to the report, he will go for an MRI on Friday.

The Buccaneers lost their third straight game on Thursday night to the Baltimore Ravens, and it would just add injury to insult if they lost Barrett too. He had a sack and three tackles prior to having to leave in the second half with what was originally deemed an ankle injury.

At 3-5, the Buccaneers fall to second in the NFC South behind the Atlanta Falcons.
