    Morning Ram-blings: Quinn speaks
    By Nick Wagoner

    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn burst on the national radar in 2013 with 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles.

    Quinn earned first-team All Pro and his first trip to the Pro Bowl for his trouble and the rest of the country stood up and took notice. He even earned the Defensive Player of the Year award from the Pro Football Writers Association.

    So it is that Quinn has begun earning more national presence. He popped on ESPN Radio on Monday, chatting with Scott Van Pelt and Ryan Russillo.

    Quinn discussed his goals for 2014 and a number of other topics in the segment. Give it a listen.
