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.
The #Rams offered the #Chiefs Robert Quinn during their trade talks centered around CB Marcus Peters, and now turn and deal him to the #Dolphins instead. He’s due $22M over 2 years.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 2, 2018
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?
