Report: Browns Attempted to Make a Deal for Rams Pass Rusher Robert Quinn

Some Browns fans wondered why the team didn’t make a big push for recently traded Los Angeles Rams pass-rusher Robert Quinn, who wound up going to the Miami Dolphins for fourth and sixth-round draft picks.

Turns out, they did try to make a deal.

A report from ESPN states that not only the Browns, but also the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in on trying to land Quinn, who is just 27 years old and had 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 15 games last season for the Rams.

The Browns had 34 sacks in 2017, 21st in the league. They have a whopping 12 draft selections in 2018 — including five in the first two rounds — and over $100 million in cap space, the most in the NFL.

Quinn registered 40 sacks in a three-year span from 2012 to 2014, but has been hit hard with injuries over the past three seasons. He missed eight games in 2015 due to knee and hip injuries. He also had a back injury that landed him on injured reserve and forced him to undergo surgery.

He struggled with a shoulder injury in 2016 and was placed on injured reserve with a concussion

So it’s back to the drawing board for the Browns as they look to upgrade their defense for the 2018 season.
