The ​Miami Dolphins have been trying to find a ​landing spot for veteran defensive end Robert Quinn, and it appears they may have found a trade partner in the ​Dallas Cowboys


According to Ian Rapoport, the team's have "parameters in place" on a deal that would send Quinn to the Cowboys. There are reportedly some minor issues to deal with involving Quinn's agent, but the deal is expected to go through. ​

​​The Dolphins are expected to endure a rebuild in 2019, and offloading Quinn's contract is a big part of that. He's due to earn $12.9 million next season, but carries a small cap hit of just $1.121 million, saving the Dolphins $11.8 million by removing him off the roster. 


Quinn started all 16 games in Miami last season and recorded 38 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. The former All-Pro defensive end has not been the same player since suffering injuries in back-to-back years in 2015 and 2016. 

Quinn started his NFL career with the Rams, being selected with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and quickly rose to stardom, making two Pro Bowl's in his first four seasons in the league. 


He's been less impactful on defense as of late, but will look to bounce back in Dallas.
