The Los Angeles Rams have a trade in place involving two-time Pro Bowler Robert Quinn. He is moving on to the Miami Dolphins.

Quinn’s deal will not become official until the new league-year on March 14th. According to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are receiving Quinn and a sixth-round draft pick, while the Rams are receiving a fourth and sixth-round draft pick.

The Rams have been attempting to deal Quinn in recent weeks. Before the Kansas City Chiefs traded cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams for two draft picks, the Chiefs asked Quinn in return for Peters.

Instead, the Rams traded two draft picks to the Chiefs for Peters, who was not expected to re-sign with the team when he became a free agent in 2019.

He had 8.5 sacks for the Rams in 15 games last season.

The 27-year-old Quinn, who was a captain for the Rams, was previously the 14th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He was with the St. Louis Rams/Los Angeles Rams franchise for the last seven years.

In 95 games, one more than the No. 94 that he wore with the Rams, he started 76 of them and had 175 tackles. He also had 16 pass deflections, 21 forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

Quinn had three straight double-digit sack seasons, including a career-high 19.0 in 2013 from 2012 through 2014. However, he has been hampered by injuries in 2015 and 2016, before appearing in 15 games, with 14 starts, last season.

Since the 2015 season, he has had 17.5 sacks in three sacks. After having 9.0 sacks in 2015 and 2016, he had 8.5 sacks in 2017.

The Dolphins are hoping that a change of scenery will help him moving forward.
