Cowboys, Dolphins nearing trade for Robert Quinn

Quinn visited The Star last Tuesday and left without a deal.

The Dallas Cowboys added a much-needed pass rusher to the mix.

Miami hoped a defensive-end pairing of Quinn and longtime standout Cameron Wake would flourish together on the Dolphins' defensive line.

After sacking the Giants quarterback seven times past year - including six in one game at AT&T Stadium - the Cowboys were close to beefing up their defensive line Thursday by nearing a trade for pass rusher Robert Quinn from the Dolphins, NFL Network reported. Quinn, who had 8.5 sacks for the Rams two years ago and 6.5 last season for the Dolphins, wasn't an ideal fit for what Brian Flores is trying to implement in his first year as Dolphins head coach.


Miami general manager Chris Grier said early this week at the National Football League owners meeting they would help facilitate a trade for Quinn by paying part of his salary as they did when they traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans. Quinn, 28, is especially important because he brings speed to the right end position, a must with the uncertainty surrounding suspended right end Randy Gregory.

Quinn's best statistical season came in 2013 when he established career-high marks in sacks (19), quarterback hits (34), tackles (57), tackles for loss (23) and forced fumbles (7). He is not insurance for Lawrence, who is in a contract impasse with the Cowboys.

Ian Rapoport has reported that the Dolphins are getting a "future late-round pick" for Quinn's services.

"We're motivated to get this deal done with DeMarcus Lawrence", Jones said. Robert Quinn ultimately gives Dallas just that. Quinn is still working on a four-year, $57 million deal he signed with the Rams in 2016.
