Report: Dolphins acquire Robert Quinn from Rams
The Miami Dolphins have reportedly made a move to bolster their pass rush by acquiring defensive end Robert Quinn from the Los Angeles Rams.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the move on Friday.

Quinn is a former first-round pick and a two-time Pro Bowler. He should make for a fearsome tandem paired with Cameron Wake on Miami’s defensive line, having collected 8.5 sacks last season. He has, however, been plagued by injury, and the Rams were motivated to move him and his roughly $25 million cap hit over the next two seasons. His name came up in trade talks with another team, but it’s the Dolphins who were able to get the move done.
