    The deadline for the Miami Dolphins to not pay pass-rusher Robert Quinn a roster bonus of approximately $1.1 million has passed. His base salary for 2019 is approximately $11.8 million, per

    I think the reasoning may be the lack of replacement. And perhaps Miami, figures, he'll be able to get them a comp pick in 2021 if he gets another contract after next season. They are flush in cap space next season even with Ryan Tannehill on the team. And can keep Quinn in 2019, because they are approximately $31m in cap space as of now. With a possible addition of Bridgewater, they'll just jettison Tannehill to offset the $$$. Keeping Quinn in my opinion is more about comp pick possibilities than the player himself.

    That's a LOT of $$$$$ for a comp pick play!

    If they are indeed keeping him I think it's a safe bet they kinda want him on the team.

    I agree, but if he gets a $4m-$5m per, contract after next season that factors into a possible 6th-7th round pick in 2021. I realize it's a lot to pay a declining player, but it's worth taking the chance on a revival of sorts.

    Actually may have had something to do with losing James. I think offensive tackle may now be priority #1. Quinn isn't terrible and could do better in a new scheme.

    if a RT is our top priority then this FO hasn't learn anything.

    Well I think CK was pitching the issue with Miami was both Wake and Quinn were too much alike. Maybe Quinn will be better without Wake?

    Quinn will be 29 at start of season. He isn't exactly old by NFL standards. Not a bad idea to keep him.

    Said it previously, I’ll give everybody a pass who played in a Matt Burke defense. Quinn is a heck of a player, let’s see what he can do with this coaching staff.

    It just seems the more things "change" the more the stay the same. They've been trying to trade him all this time but now they're going to keep him?
    Grier: "Hey Quinn, we've been trying to trade you cause we don't want you but couldn't find any takers so we'll keep you here"
    "I'm sure you'll feel welcome here"

    As SF pointed out, Quinn is not terrible, and with the loss of Wake, the cupboard is pretty bare at that position.

    ,11 mil sounds like a lot, but reality is, that's the going rate for pass rushers of his caliber.

    I also think Burke's scheme, or lack thereof, didn't create a lot of opportunity for Quinn or Wake.

    Teams could double, or chip without much worry about stunts, or blitzes.

    Yah, the money isn't as much as it seems. Cap keeps going up and the top tier pass rushers are all getting between 15 and 23 mil a year. 12 mil for the league's 20th best pass rusher isn't bad, as long as he fits the system.

    Again......as long as he fits the system. They may still be trying to trade him.

    On one hand, I could understand a player feeling slighted under the circumstances, but I think most players recognize it is a business, and not personal.

    In any case, if the player is under contract, what are his options? If he sits out, or openly dogs it, it's not going to help his career.
