It was reported earlier today that the Dolphins are trading a mid-round pick and swapping late round draft picks to acquire DE Robert Quinn from the Los Angeles Rams.
Just when I began to lose faith in my Dolphins, they reel me back in. After Tannehill got injured in the preseason last year, it was a pretty wild ride in Miami. We automatically signed Jay Cutler to be a $10 million joke. He was a funny joke, we had some good times, but he was still a joke…and an expensive one. Then, they traded Jay Ajayi for a fourth-round draft pick. I was LIVID.
So that happened and we missed the playoffs. Always next year, right? Hard maybe.
My hope started to come back around the time the Dolphins Franchise-Tagged Jarvis Landry a couple of weeks ago, because no matter what happens with that, at least they aren’t letting him walk. And then, this. We not only have Cameron Wake, we not only have Ndamukong Suh, but not we also have ROBERT QUINN!
Obviously, Adam Gase’s philosophy (besides hiring all of his boys from previous teams) is that if the opposing quarterback dies every week, they can’t beat us. I LOVE IT.
Two important items to note:
This D-Line trio might actually end Tom Brady’s career. You heard it here first!!
Secondly, getting Robert Quinn for what seems like a 4th-rounder essentially means that they turned Jay Ajayi into Robert Quinn. I can get behind that. I realize that we took on a pretty good sized contract in the process, but we are also not having to pay Landry now. (Hopefully we get good compensation.)
All we need now is to draft the next great QB and let ol’ TanneTHRILL mold them and we will be set.
P.S. I have NO idea which QB we should draft…pretty much anyone besides Darold.
P.S.S. While we are at it, let’s sign Johnny Football to the practice squad. Why? Because it’s #COMEBACKSZN
