Rams exercised DE Robert Quinn's fifth-year club option for 2015.
It's a no-brainer move. Quinn has emerged as one of the game's most dominant pass rushers over the last two seasons, compiling 29.5 sacks and 77 quarterback hurries while playing in all 32 games. He was Pro Football Focus' top 4-3 defensive end by a massive margin last year. Now the Rams have Quinn for just $1.6 million in 2014 and $6.9 million in 2015. They'll have to pull the Brinks truck into his house before he hits free agency in 2016. Apr 28 - 12:53 PM

The Rams are expected to exercise RE Robert Quinn's fifth-year club option of $6.9 million in 2015.

So St. Louis will be able to keep Quinn for $8.56 million over the next two seasons. It's a team-friendly bargain after Quinn exhibited ferocious pass-rush ability en route to 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles in 2013. The deadline for clubs to exercise fifth-year options on 2011 first-round picks is May 3.

Robert Quinn and J.J. Watt were the first-team defensive ends as the AP announced the NFL's All-Pro team on Friday.

As a 23-year-old third-year breakout player, Quinn led the NFC in sacks with 19, finishing .5 behind league leader Robert Mathis. Quinn also paced the NFC in forced fumbles (7). Here is the rest of the 2013 All-Pro first-team defense: DTs Gerald McCoy and Ndamukong Suh, OLBs Mathis and Lavonte David, ILBs Luke Kuechly and Navorro Bowman, CBs Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson, safeties Earl Thomas and Eric Berry, P Johnny Hekker.

With one game left to play, Rams RE Robert Quinn leads the NFL with 18 sacks.

He eclipsed St. Louis' franchise mark by surpassing Kevin Carter (17 sacks) with three takedowns of Mike Glennon in Sunday's win over the Bucs. Quinn also has seven forced fumbles. Luke Kuechly plays for a better team, but Quinn has just as good a case for 2013 Defensive Player of the Year accolades.

SI's Peter King suggests Rams DE Robert Quinn as a Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

Quinn isn't a household name, but he will be soon and is very much in play to win the award. Through 14 games, the 2011 first-round pick has piled up 15 sacks, 46 tackles, seven forced fumbles and 10 tackles for a loss. Quinn is Pro Football Focus' No. 1 4-3 defensive end by a country mile. Panthers MLB Luke Kuechly, Seahawks S Earl Thomas and Colts OLB Robert Mathis are also strong candidates for DPOY.

Rams RE Robert Quinn's (concussion) availability for Week 13 against the 49ers will be determined on Saturday.

Quinn still has a few hurdles to clear in order to gain full medical clearance, but he's believed to be on the right track. If he experiences no symptoms on Saturday, Quinn will be given the starting nod versus San Francisco.

Rams DE Robert Quinn missed Wednesday's practice with a concussion.

This is a surprising development, as there was no mention of a concussion for Quinn following the Rams' win over Arizona on Sunday. Despite a favorable matchup, Quinn struggled in the contest and failed to record a single fantasy-relevant stat. The Rams haven't announced a timetable for his return, but this certainly doesn't bode well for Week 13 status.

Rams RE Robert Quinn has reportedly looked "quick, quick, quick around the edge" so far at Rams training camp.

Quinn was arrested for DUI on July 10, but he's moving forward and showing up big time on the practice field. With Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford manning the interior and Quinn bookended by Chris Long, St. Louis quietly has the foundation of a dynamic front four. An edge-bending pass rusher, Quinn has the best physical skill set of the group and is a strong 2012 breakout candidate.

Rams RE Robert Quinn was involved in a one-car accident before being arrested for drunken driving on July 10.

Quinn crashed on an exit ramp at 5:38 a.m. in suburban St. Louis. The responding officer suspected he was intoxicated and arrested him. Quinn's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 11. "The Rams and the NFL office are aware of the situation," the team said. "We take such matters very seriously, and we will act accordingly once the legal process plays out."

Rams RE Robert Quinn was arrested for DWI on July 10.

All we know right now is that Quinn was pulled over in a St. Louis suburb and charged with DWI and two additional traffic charges after a single-car accident. It's his first strike in the NFL's eyes, even though he was forced to sit out the entire 2010 season at North Carolina after lying to the NCAA about receiving improper benefits. Quinn, the 14th overall pick in the 2011 draft, still projects as the Rams' starting right end. He picked up five sacks off the bench as a rookie.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, expectations at Rams Park are "sky high" for RE Robert Quinn entering his second year.

"He's God-gifted like crazy from top to bottom, and this is a speed game," said DL coach Mike Waufle. Quinn flashed his pass-rush potential with five sacks off the bench as a rookie, but Waufle thinks he's capable of emerging as a true every-down force. "I'm real excited about how he's playing the run," Waufle observed. "Most pass rushers are tagged as not wanting to be run defenders. And he's taking the running game as being a serious issue."

Rams 2011 first-round pick Robert Quinn is locked in as the team's new starting right end following the departure of James Hall.

After a slow August, Quinn flashed dominant potential with five sacks, 20 tackles, and three kick blocks off the bench as a rookie. Last year's 14th pick in the draft, Quinn got his weight down to 260 in the offseason and is a candidate for a breakout year. The Rams are quietly collecting D-Line talent with Quinn at RE, Chris Long at LE, and Michael Brockers next to Kendall Langford inside.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo confirmed that he considers No. 14 overall pick Robert Quinn the fifth-best defensive end on the Rams right now.

Quinn was a surprising healthy scratch in Week 1 as he's behind Chris Long, James Hall, C.J. Ah You and Eugene Sims on the depth chart. Quinn will be active this week thanks to Ah You's wrist injury, but it's a bad sign for the rookie's potential production early this season.

Rams first-round pick Robert Quinn has passed his physical and will begin practicing after opening camp on active/NFI with a knee injury.

The injury was never a big concern, and the Rams smartly didn't push Quinn onto the field until he received medical clearance. The 14th overall pick in April's draft, Quinn will slot in as a nickel rusher behind LE Chris Long and RE James Hall. Quinn will likely be asked to rush the passer only as a rookie.

Rams placed first-round DE Robert Quinn on the non-football injury list with a knee injury.

We know it's not a football injury because Quinn hasn't played in nearly two years. According to Tony Softli of ESPN 101 St. Louis, the injury doesn't appear to be serious, but the Rams will exercise caution with the No. 14 overall pick.
