Robert Quinn DL STL 3 Days

Quinn finally got his first sack of the season Sunday to go with four tackles and a tackle for loss in a 28-26 win over Seattle.

Quinn has been the primary focus of opposing linemen and has been bottled up for the most part this season. Owners have likely given up on him now, but at least for the Rams' sake, they have to hope this is the start of a bounce-back.

Quinn remains without a sack after five games, but did have a tackle for loss in Monday's loss to San Francisco.

The loss of Chris Long has really hurt Quinn and the entire Rams defense, as it has only one sack as a whole in five games. Quinn got off to a slow start last season, but nowhere near this sluggish. He has 12 tackles in five games.

Quinn provided two tackles (one for loss) Sunday but the Rams fell to the Cowboys 34-31.

Opposing offensive lines have solved Quinn thus far this season, as he has been held without a sack and to only seven tackles. IDP owners have to be concerned about Quinn's output, as this is an incredibly slow start for the star defensive end.

Quinn tallied three tackles in a 19-17 win against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

It wasn't a huge performance after signing a monster deal during the week, but the St. Louis defense played well and the Rams got the win. Quinn doesn't have a sack through two games, but he did start fairly slowly last year as well.

Quinn signed a four-year, $66.575 million extension with St. Louis on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Quinn is one of the league's most intimidating defenders, piling up 29.5 sacks in his last 33 games, and he just turned 24 in May. He's an elite athlete with a long history of dominating as a pass rusher, so it's possible that he hasn't even reached his ceiling yet. This deal locks up him through 2019.

Quinn had two tackles (one for loss) in Sunday's season opener and found out Wednesday that fellow starting defensive end Chris Long will miss 8-to-10 weeks with an ankle injury, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Although St. Louis is deep at the defensive end position, William Hayes doesn't attract nearly as much attention as Long did. Quinn may see more double teams than he already would have, and that paired with the Rams' porous run defense hurts Quinn's fantasy prospects.

Rams exercised DE Robert Quinn's fifth-year club option for 2015.

It's a no-brainer move. Quinn has emerged as one of the game's most dominant pass rushers over the last two seasons, compiling 29.5 sacks and 77 quarterback hurries while playing in all 32 games. He was Pro Football Focus' top 4-3 defensive end by a massive margin last year. Now the Rams have Quinn for just $1.6 million in 2014 and $6.9 million in 2015. They'll have to pull the Brinks truck into his house before he hits free agency in 2016.

The Rams are expected to exercise RE Robert Quinn's fifth-year club option of $6.9 million in 2015.

So St. Louis will be able to keep Quinn for $8.56 million over the next two seasons. It's a team-friendly bargain after Quinn exhibited ferocious pass-rush ability en route to 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles in 2013. The deadline for clubs to exercise fifth-year options on 2011 first-round picks is May 3.

With one game left to play, Rams RE Robert Quinn leads the NFL with 18 sacks.

He eclipsed St. Louis' franchise mark by surpassing Kevin Carter (17 sacks) with three takedowns of Mike Glennon in Sunday's win over the Bucs. Quinn also has seven forced fumbles. Luke Kuechly plays for a better team, but Quinn has just as good a case for 2013 Defensive Player of the Year accolades.
