The St. Louis Rams are closing in on an extension with All-Pro defensive end Robert Quinn, according to Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin

Per Getlin, the deal could be done before Week 3, and Quinn is looking for something in the $15 million per season range, over four-to-six years. 

A first-round pick in 2011, Quinn broke out in 2013 with 19 sacks and has quickly developed into one of the league's top pass rushers.

The St. Louis Rams have signed defensive end Robert Quinn to a four-year contract extension, the team announced Saturday.

The deal, which keeps Quinn under contract through 2019, is worth $66.575 million and includes $41.2 million in guaranteed money, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

"This is an exciting day for the Rams,” head coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement. "I'm extremely happy for our organization as well as Robert and his family. 

"I would like to thank Stan Kroenke for his support in making this happen. Robert's commitment to hard work has made him one of the best defensive ends in the game, as both a pass rusher and a run defender. We're thrilled that Robert will be a part of our defense for the long term."

A 2011 first-round pick out of North Carolina, Quinn recorded two tackles in the Rams' season-opening loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
