The Dolphins
Watched Quinn a lot last year. He flashed elite skills in preseason camp and games. Incredible bend and rush skills. He was unstoppable.

Regular season starts and his production falls off. Was it the scheme (entirely possible. No one was happy about the defense)? Was it other offenses scheming up to stop him? He was going against starters in preseason, so I don’t think it was competition level.

If it was scheme-based, he may very well still have the ability to be an elite pass-rusher. That’s what I’m sure teams are trying to determine.
The Dolphins have some talent. I watched a few of their games last year and it was like many of the players mailed it in early and appeared to be playing more to avoid injuries than wins.

Brian Flores is bringing a 3-4 hybrid defense to Miami, which made Quinn a scheme mismatch. I mean there's that and the fact that Miami is in Tank for Tua mode. They're willing to pay some of Quinn's salary this season they did the same for Tannehill.

So whoever gets him will not pay the full salary for this year, and he's only signed for this season.

1)You can never have to many pass rushers.

2) A move like this allows us to slide Cam inside on 2nd and 3rd down, and have 3 elite pass rushers getting after the QB.

3) You can never have to many pass rushers...
I like 1 and 3. Oh and 2 also

Do the trade

The tweet above your post though makes it sound like he’s making rounds with intentions of signing an extension with whoever can meet his financial terms.

Robert Quinn, like Eric Berry, ended visit with Cowboys without a deal

If Quinn is on a one year deal and does not want a new deal (i.e. no big signing bonus) or if we can do something like give Quinn a fake voidable year to convert money into a signing bonus with an additional year which wrecks our cap for next year a bit, but goes all in for this season I can see that. We have Davenport to start, I am not sure why DE after signing Edwards is such a great need but I can see how D line depth with the Rankins injury and Omenyata suspension could be even with the Brown signing at DT and the Davidson not resigning. If this is a one year rental and we can give up a 2020 pick or like a fifth this year maybe it is worth it. Miami clearly is unloading to rebuild after years of mediocrity to try to get a top QB. I am wondering what Suh's asking price is and if he wants to come to New Orleans. I also wonder if this is also posturing to bring Ziggy's price down.

Also, Dolphin has no leverage. They don't have to cut salary. They are trying to stockpile picks and get a QB in 2020. Quinn is only a 12 million salary expiring.

He just got traded in 2018. So, he has no dead money.

I think they are looking at something similar to the Ellerbe deal a few years ago. The Dolphins gave him a new deal that converted salary to signing bonus and tacked on a few years. Then immediately traded him to the Saints. In this the Dolphins absorbed the signing bonus and the Saints only had to pay Salary and any future roster and performance bonus's
