Three reasons why the St Louis Rams will make the playoffs

Yesterday, Grantland’s Bill Barnwell released part 2 of his third annual NFL Trade Value column.

St. Louis Rams make the easiest personnel move in team history

The Rams have officially exercised Robert Quinn’s fifth-year option for 2015, which will pay him $6.969 million. Considering Quinn is coming off an All-Pro season in which he easily qualified as a top-three defensive end, that option is a bargain for the Rams. And remember, he’s not even done with his rookie contract, as Quinn will make a bargain basement sum of $1.66 million...

Turns out Robert Quinn might be so expensive after all

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about the salary cap implications of Robert Quinn’s monster 2013 season. It was obviously premature speculation on my part, as I was just posting a quick piece to start a conversation rather than a thoroughly researched piece. Turns out I should’ve waited a couple weeks.

Robert Quinn is actually getting his due accolades

Because I’m so used to the Rams getting overlooked on the national scale, I reflexively get enraged when people bring up the Defensive Player of the Year voting. Amazingly though, Rams defensive end Robert Quinn is justifiably receiving all the honors he deserves after his 19-sack season that saw him easily rated as Pro Football Focus’s best 4-3 defensive end. Quinn’s already...
