Rams exercise 5th-year option on DE Quinn's contract
Quinn set a franchise record with 19 sacks last season, second most in the NFL. He has 29 1/2 sacks the last two seasons, also the second-highest total in the league in that span.
Quinn was a first-round pick in 2011 out of North Carolina and was also a first-time Pro Bowl selection last year.
As part of the CBA, all first-round draft picks get four-year contracts with a fifth-year option for the team that must be picked up after the player's third season. The deadline to exercise the option is Saturday.
