Dolphins talking to multiple teams about Robert Quinn

Ryan Fitzpatrick and Haloti Ngata are the big winners from the weekend according to Chris Simms and Ahmed Fareed.

In lieu of dumping players the Dolphins no longer want, they’re willing to consider paying a chunk of their salary to facilitate a deal, like they did with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Ultimately, the Dolphins are buying draft picks -- like the Browns did two years ago when picking up Brock Osweiler’s $16 million fully-guaranteed salary along with a second-round pick from the Texans.

According to multiple reports, the Dolphins currently are talking to the Cowboys about a possible trade for defensive end Robert Quinn, who according to Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is visiting the team on Tuesday. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald adds that the Saints also are talking to the Dolphins about a deal.

Quinn is due to earn $11.8 million in 2019, the final year of his contract. Last week, the Dolphins agreed to pay $5 million of Ryan Tannehill’s reduced salary of $7 million in order to make a trade with the Titans happen.

The former Rams pass rusher had 6.5 sacks in 16 games last year for the Dolphins, his first season in Miami.
