  1. Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins will work out for the Raiders and Dolphins in the coming days, and he also plans to meet with the Redskins, Broncos and Giants, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Fully expected to become a top-10 pick in next month’s draft, Haskins will likely embark on a busy schedule over the next several weeks. Haskins performed at OSU’s pro day earlier Wednesday, giving NFL clubs an up-close look at his abilities, and he’ll surely meet with a number of other teams — in addition to those listed above — in the weeks leading up to the draft. New York will meet with Haskins despite conflicting reports about its potential interest in the former Buckeyes signal-caller. While some reports have indicated Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is “all over” Haskins, others have said Haskins isn’t likely to be a target for Big Blue. Washington is another logical candidate to land Haskins, as the Redskins need a cheap quarterback given that Alex Smith is expensive and unlikely to play any
  2. With the Dolphins’ permission, Robert Quinn looks to be on his way to meet with another team. After his Cowboys meeting concluded, Quinn is on his way to visit the Saints, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram tweets. The Cowboys are not yet close on an agreement to acquire the Dolphins defensive end, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic adds (on Twitter). The Saints expressed interest in Quinn earlier Tuesday. The Dolphins are willing to eat some of Quinn’s salary, which as of now is $11.8M in 2019, in order to acquire a draft choice for the veteran defensive end. New Orleans holds just more than $19M in cap space but will almost certainly not be paying all of Quinn’s salary, in the event a trade agreement is reached. New Orleans lost Alex Okafor to Kansas City but still has Marcus Davenport in line to be Cameron Jordan’s edge sidekick. Quinn would likely be a rotational presence. Although he is not on the same level he was when he earned All-Pro acclaim in St. Louis, with a 19-sack season that included s
  3. The market for Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn is starting to take shape. Quinn, who will meet with the Cowboys on Tuesday, has drawn inquiries from the Saints, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.  Quinn established himself as an elite pass rusher years ago with the Rams, but the Dolphins are eager to trade him as he enters the final year of his contract. That’s not a total indictment on his present skill level, however. Quinn’s $11.8M base salary is on the high side and a skeptic might say that the Dolphins are looking to tank in 2019. For the Saints, Quinn could help to form a potent three-headed rotation along with Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport. The Saints also added Mario Edwards Jr. to the mix recently, so they’re clearly focusing on edge depth. Adding Quinn would easily offset the loss of Alex Okafor, who departed in free agency to sign with the Chiefs. The Saints have less than $20M in cap room, according to Over The Cap, but a simple restructure or extension could allow the t
  4. The Miami Dolphins are looking to part ways with Robert Quinn a year after acquiring him in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams, and the Dallas Cowboys are one of the teams showing interest in the defensive end. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that the Dolphins are allowing Quinn to meet with the Cowboys on Tuesday, as the two sides have been discussing a potential trade. Quinn is scheduled to count $12.5 million against the salary cap in 2019, and Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported on Monday that the Dolphins are willing to eat some money to trade him. They already paid him a $1.12 million roster bonus that was due last week, so that money will be gone if they move the 29-year-old. Quinn was one of the best pass-rushers in the NFL several years ago, recording 19 sacks in 2013 with the Rams. However, he had just 6.5 sacks last season, and the Dolphins appear to be committed to not winning in 2019. It makes sense that they would be willing to eat some money to get younger, and the Cowboys are in
  5. The Dolphins are shopping Robert Quinn and it sounds like they already have one potential suitor. The defensive end is on his way to visit the Cowboys, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (on Twitter) hears. Clubs have to give their blessing before a contracted player can visit another club, so Miami has given Quinn the green light to talk with Jerry Jones & Co. If the two sides are comfortable with one another, this could be the precursor to a deal. Quinn has one year remaining on the contract he initially signed with the Rams. As it stands, Quinn is set to carry an $11.8M cap number for the upcoming season, but none of the money coming to him is guaranteed. It’s possible that the Cowboys will ask Quinn to take a pay cut in exchange for some cost certainty in 2019. An extension may also be in the cards, though that could be tricky given Quinn’s decline in production. Quinn had just 6.5 sacks in 2018, but he did tie for 20th among DEs with 24 quarterback hits. Pro Football Focus, meanwhile, assigned Quinn the 19th-
