That's a LOT of $$$$$ for a comp pick play!I think the reasoning may be the lack of replacement. And perhaps Miami, figures, he'll be able to get them a comp pick in 2021 if he gets another contract after next season. They are flush in cap space next season even with Ryan Tannehill on the team. And can keep Quinn in 2019, because they are approximately $31m in cap space as of now. With a possible addition of Bridgewater, they'll just jettison Tannehill to offset the $$$. Keeping Quinn in my opinion is more about comp pick possibilities than the player himself.
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.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.
if a RT is our top priority then this FO hasn't learn anything.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.
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.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"
