Star defensive end Robert Quinn and the St. Louis Rams are close to an agreement on a multi-year extension, a league source told Yahoo Sports.

There is optimism in Quinn's camp that a deal can get done before Week 3, the source said. Quinn is believed to be targeting a deal that would pay him in the $15 million per season range on a four- to six-year extension.

Quinn, a first-round draft pick in 2011, led the Rams with a career-high 19 sacks last season. He also forced seven fumbles in a Pro Bowl season that saw only one man, Indianapolis' Robert Mathis, have more sacks than him.

Good to get that knocked out and done with.

http://overthecap.com/thoughts-on-robert-quinns-contract-extension-with-the-rams-salary-contract-cap/

This deal seems ridiculously team friendly. Quinn's cap hit next year is a pretty massive $16M, but that's not a big deal when you consider all of the potential money that is going to be freed up next season:
(Bradford ($13M potential savings) cut/restructure Langford ($6M potential savings) cut/restructure, Wells ($6M savings) contract up, JL55's cap number dropping from $10M to $4M, and Jake Long cut/restructure ($8M potential savings).

After that, his cap numbers of $11M, $10.75M, $12M, $13M are pretty much right in line with Chris Long's cap numbers now despite the salary cap ballooning like crazy.

Gotta think this is a major steal on our part.

I said it in the news forum..

But this an absolute steal and Quinn's getting
underpaid disgustingly.

Should have commanded 15-18 mil per year,
Since he's by far our best player, and the guaranteed money
isn't that crazy as well..

He must either love STL.. Or his agent must suck.
