Dolphins Trade Robert Quinn To Cowboys

Mar 29, 2019 8:33 AM

The Miami Dolphins have traded Robert Quinn to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2020 sixth-round pick.

Quinn will receive a new one-year deal worth $8 million from the Cowboys and can earn $1 million more in incentives, according to sources.

The defensive end was set to make $11.8 million in the last year of his contract. Earlier in the month, the Dolphins paid Quinn a $1.12 million roster bonus and reportedly were willing to pay some of Quinn's base salary to facilitate a trade.

However, Miami is not paying any of the money in Quinn's new deal with the Cowboys.

Eagles Proposed Change To Dallas-Detroit Thanksgiving Tradition

Mar 22, 2019 8:31 AM

The Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions have hosted Thanksgiving games annually for decades, but the Philadelphia Eagles briefly attempted to change that.

The Eagles submitted a proposal for a change in the league resolutions that would have seen the Lions and Cowboys continue to play on Thanksgiving each year, but to play on the road every other year.

However, the Eagles withdrew the proposal perhaps over concerns that it had no chance to pass.

David Irving Will Quit NFL, Criticizes League's Hypocrisy On Marijuana

Mar 8, 2019 8:40 AM

David Irving announced on Thursday that he will quit the NFL.

Irving has been suspended by the NFL indefinitely for violating its substance-abuse policy for a third time in as many years.

"Basically, guys, I quit," Irving said. "I don't want to talk about a suspension and all this other nonsense. I'm outta there. I'm not doing this s--- no more."

Irving specified that his problem is with the NFL and not the sport.

"Everyone questions my commitment to football, but let's get it straight, here and now," he said. "I love football ... I wouldn't be here without it. Don't get me wrong, I love football. However, I don't love the NFL. The NFL is not football, you need to understand that. What you all see us do, the game and s---, that's, what, 20 percent of all the real s--- we're doing."

Irving was possibly smoking marijuana during the video.

"It's funny, you know, some people: 'Oh, you're addicted to weed, you're addicted to this and that,'" he said. "I mean s---, if I'm gonna be addicted to something, I'd rather be addicted to marijuana, which is medical -- it's a medicine; I do not consider it a drug -- rather than Xanax bars or the hydros or the seroquel and all that crazy s--- that they feed you.

"Like I said, it's not about smoking weed. How many NBA players you see getting in trouble about this? How many coaches you see getting in trouble about this? How many baseball players? How many UFC players getting in trouble?"
