While the Dallas Cowboys are trying to work out a long-term deal with franchise player Demarcus Lawrence, they acquired another pass-rusher today, trading for defensive end Robert Quinn, formerly of the Miami Dolphins.
Quinn, who turns 29 in May, was traded to Miami last year by the Rams. In his one year in South Florida, he started all 16 games and collected 6.5 sacks. Quinn had 40.0 sacks from 2012 to 2014, but only 24.0 sacks in four seasons since.
The Cowboys gave Miami a 2020 sixth-round pick in the deal, then signed Quinn to a new contract that will likely be much cheaper than the $11.8 million he was scheduled to make on his old arrangement.
