The Buccaneers and the Browns both tried to broker a trade for pass-rusher Robert Quinn before the Rams sent him to Miami, ESPN reports.

The Dolphins gave up fourth- and sixth-round picks for Quinn, who has a $12.4 million cap hit for 2018. The Bucs have eight draft selections, and the Browns have 12. But it is unknown what either team offered.

Quinn made 8.5 sacks and forced two fumbles in 15 games last season.

The trade can’t become official until March 14.

  1. Kronke not that rich by NFC West standards (Paul Allen) and he’s already cutting payroll to keep up the payments on his under-capitalized new stadium complex. They’ll be doing this for the next several years until the stadium is paid off. Look at what’s happening to Arsenal in the English Premier League for a comparison. Anyone who hoped the Rams would unseat the Seahawks on a long-term basis is in for a looooong next 5 years.

  2. Seahawk fans sour about that cellar about to be occupied by them. This move had to happen to get room for Donald/gurley money

  3. He’s a really good DE,worth more then the picks the Dolphins gave up. I’m a Bucs fan and we desperately need the service of a 10 + sack a year guy. Quinn is definitely a beast. The Bucs are not trying to get better. I personally don’t know what the hell they are thinking.

  4. Uhh Seahawk fans are just waiting for Sept/Oct so we can laugh at the Rams. They are headed for a Cowboy like fall off with a their C+ QB. Seattle will be in the mix every year as long as they don’t shop for kickers in the 5$ movie bin and Wilson is in the lineup.

    They were already $40 million under the cap. They didn’t need to clear any cap space for that. Kronke needed the money. This is a salary dump plain and simple. They will be at the 89% spending cap minimum. Watch.

  6. LOL!

    >Uhh Seahawk fans are just waiting for Sept/Oct so we can laugh at the Rams.<

    Why don't you try laughing at the 42-7 beat down we gave you at home. Your own fans started leaving the game early in the 3rd quarter.

    And before you want to tell me about that warm-fuzzy 16-10 win in Los Angeles just remember… if you're counting on and NEED us to turn the ball over 5x and ONCE at the goal line for a touchback to beat us, you're NOT going to win too many times against us. And don't forget even with us handing you the game like that we STILL had a chance to beat you with the ball LITERALLY on Cooper Kupps' hands in the endzone.

    Face it Seattle, you're yesterday's news and the Rams are so young, we're going to be around for a LONG time. I'm not even sure you finish above San Francisco this year.

  7. If I am the Browns I am building from within. I don’t want any outsiders coming in but only those that help turn the team around with an attitude. Don’t pay the FA but take care of the players who turn it around.

  8. I’m not sure which image I enjoy more…The one of Gurley running 50+ yards for a TD through a helpless Seahawks defense with arm outstretched to the sky…or the one of Russell Wilson getting rag dolled and flailing a backwards pass about 20 yards in the wrong direction.

    Ahhhh…The future is bright.

    In Los Angeles.
