In shocking fashion, Los Angeles Rams General Manager Les Snead isn’t done making moves yet. The Rams have shipped OLB Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins for a package in return that has yet to be fully announced:
This is a stunning development as the Rams just recently traded for Pro bowl CB Marcus Peters, and apparently denied sending Quinn to Kansas City in that trade.
This will no doubt have repercussions on the Rams depth chart as they were already weak at the Edge position. Fellow starting OLB Connor Barwin is a free agent, and now Quinn is on his way out of town. This leaves Samson Ebukam as a current starter.
The compensation has been revealed to some extent:

What the exact pick is has not been revealed just yet, but the general terms have been revealed as a “mid-round” pick. That could ultimately be a fourth round pick as the Rams just recently lost theirs in the Peters trade.
UPDATE: News continues to hit the web, and it seems the Rams and Dolphins are going to be swapping picks:
