I’ve heard that if you’re truly stuck between two options you view as completely equal, but you can choose only one, you should flip a coin. But – here’s the trick – by the time the coin reaches the apex of its flip, you’ll actually know in your heart which side you’re hoping it lands on. If that happens, you’re supposed to ignore the result of the flip, and go with what your heart told you as the coin was in the air.
… or, in new Chicago Bear Robert Quinn’s case, you literally just go with what the coin says:
As Robert Quinn struggled with his decision in free agency, he flipped a coin. It was either the Bears or the Falcons.
"I really couldn't make up my mind, so I had to do it the honest way. … The Bears were on the right side."

Maybe we’ll just hope that he truly did have the Bears in his heart of hearts.
In any case, at least that means the Bears weren’t offering him so egregiously above market that no other team was in the competition!
UPDATE ON THIS BREAKING STORY! It seems Quinn did not mean to make it sound quite so literal in the telling of his story:
