    Rams exercise Quinn's fifth year option.

    Well duh.

    Here's the blurb from RW

    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.

    Good deal. I expect the fifth-year option to be in great shape by the time camp rolls around.

    If Quinn has another great year for the Rams, don't even play the Jedi mind games on him...pay him his full markets worth. Maybe in 2-8 season from now Quinn will lose a step and not be a dominate force on the field, then at that time the Rams can ask for a restructured deal or release him--but while he is helping you win games, don't look a gift horse in the mouth

    Rams will pay him frontloaded when the time comes. Demoff does an excellent job managing the cap and it could possibly increase to $150 million in the near future.

    Quinn is 23. I'd say more like 8-10 years.

    Yes, totally agree.
