Report: Rams Will Trade DE Robert Quinn to Dolphins

03 March, 2018

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Miami Dolphins have apparently put together something attractive enough for the Rams to send Quinn to South Beach.

It appears the Rams aren't done wheeling and dealing before the new league year begins either.

This is an interesting move, one that comes on the heels of the Rams acquiring talented but apparently troubled cornerback Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs.

The upside for the Rams here is that they'll be dumping a lot of salary, as Quinn had a cap hit of roughly $12.4 million in 2018.

Israel has annexed East Jerusalem and declared the entire city as its capital, a move not recognized by the global community. Embassy in Jerusalem will open in May 2018 to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel declaring independence.

During the 2013 National Football League season, Quinn racked up 19 sacks, his career high until this point.

Schefter is also reporting the Dolphins are going to give the Rams a mid-round draft pick. Quinn, the 27-year-old seven-year veteran, is a two-time Pro Bowl selection who had 8.5 sacks last season.

Quinn is a very reliable defensive end that will help Miami on the outside but the question is where does he fit in?

The Dolphins are over the projected salary cap, so plenty of tough decisions need to be made before March 14, which is the first day that teams have to be under the projected salary cap of $178 million. Quinn will play opposite Cameron Wake, which makes for one heckuva pass rush. Wake is coming off a 10.5 sack season for the Dolphins, but he turned 36 last January. And they could cut ties with inside linebacker Mark Barron, which would save them $22 million toward the cap over the next three seasons. For the Rams, who now have almost $50 million in cap space following the Robert Quinn trade, it would significantly upgrade their secondary from what it was even this past season with Phillips calling the plays, and they'd be getting Talib on a very team-friendly deal.
