The Los Angeles Rams have reportedly traded DE/LB Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins. A source says the Rams will be receiving a mid-round pick and both teams will swap late round picks, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.
At the moment, trades are not official until the new league year begins on March 14. General manager Les Snead appears to be on the verge of a busy offseason for the Rams after trading for CB Marcus Peters as well.
This move is likely more of a salary dump than anything. Quinn still has two years left on his current contract worth approximately $24.4 million.
Quinn didn’t adjust well to the Rams’ switch to the 3-4 defense last season. He also played through some injuries too. He did have his dominant moments after finishing the season with 21 tackles and 8.5 sacks. The former 2011 14th overall pick was a fan favorite in St. Louis and Los Angeles and will be missed.
According to Fox Sports’ Pete Schrager, the Rams received the Dolphins’ fourth round pick and swapped sixth round picks in exchange for Quinn.
