KC Chiefs could have had Rams DE Robert Quinn

The Los Angeles Rams will trade defensive end Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter late Friday afternoon.

This normally wouldn’t be news for a website like Arrowhead Pride, but the fact that it was rumored the Rams originally offered Quinn to the Chiefs as part of the Marcus Peters deal changes that.

If Quinn was offered in the deal, the Chiefs declined, instead sending a sixth-rounder along with Peters to the Rams in exchange for a 2019 second-round pick and a 2018 fourth-round pick.

As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport states in his tweet, Quinn is due $22 million over the next two seasons, and I’d guess this is not a number the Chiefs wanted to add to their cap as they try to free up space (notice the release of safety Ron Parker). The Chiefs likely received the fourth-rounder instead of Quinn.

With all that being said, the 27-year-old Quinn can still impact a football game, so it was probably worth considering.

Where do you stand?


Should the Chiefs have gone after DE Robert Quinn in the Marcus Peters deal?
