Newly Acquired DE Robert Quinn Brings High Expectations

Winning games in the NFL typically comes down to accomplishing two goals. One, being successful when passing on . And, two, stopping the opposing team's .

The Cowboys set out to accomplish that second goal this , re- defensive end , and trading for veteran pass rusher Robert Quinn. Quinn, who tallied 6.5 last season for the , is one of the leagues more feared rushers when at his best. The former All Pro has multiple 10+ sack seasons under his belt, including a whopping 19 in 2013.

And, as expected, the Cowboys is ecstatic to have such a respected pass rushing specialist on their roster.

“He’s got that first step. He’s an established pass rusher in this league, so he’s going to bring some good stuff for us.” – Cowboys .

The Cowboys acquired Robert Quinn for a 2020 6th round pick, which could end up being the steal of the offseason. Quinn has played with some top-notch pass rushers in the past, and each time they have brought out the best in his own game.

Back with the Rams in 2017, when was on the same , Quinn got to the 8.5 times. And, last season, he remained consistent in his sack totals playing alongside . Now he joins a DeMarcus Lawrence who has 25 sacks over the last 2 seasons.

“I think it was kind of one of those where I get to have fun, pin my ears back and just disrupt the backfield, which is what they want us to do.” – Robert Quinn told NFL.com. 

Quinn and the always dominant Lawrence will form an impressive defensive end duo on passing downs, with the potential to be one of the best in all of football. Dallas is also hoping to add into this mix, a piece which could prove vital late in football games if he is able to return from his current indefinite .

Whether or not Gregory finds his way back onto the field, though, this defensive front will be in good hands. The combo of Quinn and Lawrence, combined with a plethora of skilled interior rushers such as , gives the Cowboys a fearsome defensive line which should keep quarterbacks uncomfortable every Sunday.
