Bears' Quinn, Grant selected to Pro Bowl


Outside linebacker Robert Quinn and return specialist Jakeem Grant Sr. have been voted to represent the Bears on the NFC Pro Bowl team.

Quinn entered Week 15 tied for third in the NFL with a team-leading 14.0 sacks, the third most in a single season in Bears history behind Hall of Famer Richard Dent's club-record 17.5 in 1984 and 17.0 in 1985.

Quinn's 14.0 sacks are the second most in his 11-year NFL career, topped only by the 19.0 sacks he recorded for the Rams in 2013, when was named All-Pro and earned his only previous trip to the Pro Bowl.

Quinn was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November after registering 5.5 sacks, 14 tackles, five tackles-for-loss and two forced fumbles. In a Nov. 21 loss to the Ravens, he set a career high with 3.5 sacks.

Grant was obtained by the Bears Oct. 5 in a trade with the Dolphins. In nine games, he's averaged 16.3 yards on 15 punt returns with one touchdown and 23.0 yards on two kickoff returns, and caught nine passes for 139 yards and two TDs.

Grant's 97-yard punt return touchdown last Sunday night in Green Bay was the NFL's first punt return TD of the season and the longest punt return TD in Bears history, eclipsing Johnny Bailey's 95-yarder Dec. 29, 1990 against the Chiefs.

Both Quinn and Grant were selected as starters on the NFC team.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022 in Las Vegas, exactly a week before the Super Bowl is held in Los Angeles.
