    Isn't he injury prone? I'd prefer Carlos Dunlap. Cheaper, although only has 1 year left on his contract (as opposed to 2 for Quinn).

    We need to do something to get to the Quarterback.
    Remember when BB perceives a weakness he will overcompensate like a 50 year old impotent man with a garage of porsches.

    The Pats currently have $13.1M in cap space. They will have 6 draft picks after the comp picks are settled.

    Quinn would hit the Patriots cap for about $11M this year and nearly $13M in 2019.

    In 2013 & 2014, Quinn was a one-man terror campaign as a DE, amassing 103 total tackles (a lot for a DE), 29.5 sacks, 7 PD and 12 FF, with 2 FR - one returned for a TD - over the course of 32 games under DCs Tim Walton, and then Gregg Williams (through 2016) in a 4-3 defense. He averaged about 75% of the D-snaps. Those teams both finished in the middle of the league in terms of both points and yards allowed.

    Prior to 2015, Quinn had missed only one game in his four-year career, and that in his rookie season.

    In 2015, Quinn missed 8 games, first with a knee injury, and then with a back injury that sent him to IR.

    In 2016, Quinn missed 7 games, first with a shoulder injury, and then with a concussion that ultimately sent him to IR.

    In 2017, played in 15 games/14 starts. He had 33 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, 0 PD and 2 FF, playing 59% of the D-snaps as an "LB" in new DC Wade Phillips' 3-4.

    Quinn turns 28 in May.

    Quinn's more likely to be a cap casualty than traded to the Patriots at that price. What's most likely is a restructuring with the Rams since he's still productive.

    I don't see BB spending all the resources needed to trade for, and pay, Quinn, under current circumstances.

    Dunlap turns 28 on February 28th. His cap hit for the Pats would be $7.3M for 2018.

    Dunlap has missed zero games and only one start in the past five seasons (that one in 2013) an averaged about 80% of the Bengals' D-snaps/season over that time.

    In the past five seasons, he's averaged just under 9 sacks and 56 total tackles in the Bengals 4-3 - the first year of that stretch (2013) under DC Mike Zimmer, and the last 4 under DC Paul Guenther.

    For the past two seasons, Dunlap's tackle totals were below his 5-year average. However, he also posted 22 of his 42 career PDs over the past two seasons, 15 of those in 2016.

    So far, he appears to have adapted pretty well to playing more of an OLB/DE-type role in Wade Phillips' 3-4.

    "Still, the 27-year-old defensive is worth the risk and investment if he can help turn around a disappointing Patriots defense. "

    Pats Defense ranked right up there...disappointing for the SB probably due to coaching decision on Defense ( Butler).....The heart of the D was missing in Hightower plus others on IR they should still have a good base to work from in 2018.. I take Bleacher Report analysis with a grain of salt ...:cool:

    It's always funny when writers impose the free agency mindset of the other 31 teams on the Patriots.

    Are you all forgetting that we have rivers and langi coming back from it? Also, we only have 5 draft picks for this draft.
