Saints miss out as Cowboys, Dolphins finalize Robert Quinn trade

Saints miss out as Cowboys, Dolphins finalize Robert Quinn trade

In March of previous year, the Miami Dolphins were hoping to get a healthy Ryan Tannehill back in the lineup and take a step forward.

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

The Cowboys and Dolphins agreed to a trade for defensive end Robert Quinn that would send the defensive end to Dallas, the Cowboys announced Thursday. In 16 games past year, Quinn recorded 38 tackles, 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

A coaching change made him a bad fit for the scheme run by new coach Brian Flores.

The Cowboys now have a pair of experienced 4-3 ends who can contribute immediately. But if there was serious interest, it either wasn't enough for the Dolphins or Robert Quinn would rather be a Dallas Cowboy because that's reportedly where he's headed. Quinn had been under contract in Miami through the 2019 season. 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.

Wake - whose 10-year Dolphins career ended after agreeing to a new three-year deal with the Tennessee Titans earlier this month - had six sacks, five tackles for loss, 17 quarterback hits and 36 tackles in 14 games last season. He is not insurance for Lawrence, who is in a contract impasse with the Cowboys. We'll know once the details of this deal are finalized and revealed. Quinn is still working on a four-year, $57 million deal he signed with the Rams in 2016.

With Lawrence, Quinn, Crawford, Gregory, Hyder, Taco Charlton and Dorance Armstrong, the Cowboys have the deepest rotation since Marinelli joined the staff.
