Dallas Cowboys Setting Up Trade For Robert Quinn
Unless something falls apart with Robert Quinn's agent, the pass rusher will be on his way to Dallas.
Robert Quinn is a former Defensive Player of the Year Award (2013) winner who has started 92 games over his 8 year NFL career. Quinn has 256 career tackles, 69 career sacks, and 23 forced fumbles.
In 2013, Quinn had a career high 19 sacks, and led the NFL in tackles for loss with 23. Last year was his first season in Miami, where he only reached 6.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in 16 games.
The Cowboys have been dealing with Defensive End DeMarcus Lawrence, who is looking to get a massive pay raise. According to dueling reports, some believe that Lawrence is looking for Khalil Mack level money, while others are saying that the Cowboys offered a "low ball" deal.
Last season, Mack held out in Oakland until he was traded to the Chicago Bears. Once he arrived in Chicago, he was given a 6-year deal worth $141 million. That deal had $90 million in guaranteed money.
Prior to Mack's new deal, he had played every game in his 4 year NFL career, starting 16 games a year. He never had less than 70 tackles in a season, and had over 10 sacks a year since his rookie year, with 15 in 2015. Lawrence has only started 16 games once in his career, which was 2017. He has never topped 70 tackles, maxing out at 64 last season. He has reached the 10 sack mark twice in his career, the last two seasons, and reached 14.5 sacks in 2017.
Earlier this month, the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Lawrence.
