Robert Quinn reportedly being traded from Dolphins to Cowboys

Robert Quinn

The Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys have been discussing a potential trade involving defensive end Robert Quinn since at least earlier this month, and the two sides have finally reached an agreement.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Dolphins and Cowboys have agreed to the framework of a deal that will send Quinn to Dallas.

Quinn is scheduled to count $12.5 million against the salary cap in 2019, and a recent report indicated the Dolphins are willing to eat some money to trade him. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Quinn will sign a new one-year deal as part of the trade to Dallas.

Quinn was one of the best pass-rushers in the NFL several years ago, recording 19 sacks in 2013 with the Rams. However, he had just 6.5 sacks last season, and the Dolphins appear to be committed to not winning in 2019. The Cowboys already have one star defensive end in DeMarcus Lawrence, so the addition of Quinn should make their front seven that much more dangerous.
