St. Louis Rams Rookie SUED

I Got You Tailor-Made Suits

... and You Screwed Me!

1/9/2012 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Quinn
St. Louis Rams
rookie Robert Quinn was LOOKIN' SHARP after he was picked 14th overall at the 2011 NFL Draft ... but now the guy who allegedly hooked up his fancy threads is suing ... TMZ has learned.

No, we're not talking about Quinn's tailor ... the dude with the beef is an agent who claims he repped Quinn during the draft ... but was kicked to the curb right before Quinn signed his MASSIVE $9.4 million contract.

According to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ ... Carl Carey claims he signed a deal with Quinn when the former University of North Carolina defensive end decided to turn pro.

Carey claims Quinn was viewed by NFL teams as a guy with some serious "character flaws and health concerns" ... until Carey reconstructed his image.

In the lawsuit, filed in federal court in North Carolina, Carey claims he did EVERYTHING for Quinn ... including party-planning, media training, and even "arranging for tailor-made suits."

Quinn also claims he negotiated deals with Nike and trading card companies.

But just before Quinn signed his contract ... (months after the draft) ... Carey claims he was fired ... and has not received the 3% cut he was contractually obligated to receive.

Now, Carey wants payback ... and though he hasn't specified an amount ... 3% of $9.4 mil is A LOT of money.  Calls to Quinn have not been returned.

Dude, the word was out---that guy has some serious "character flaws" one of the being he has no scruples. You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear. Putting an expensive suit means you put an expensive suit on piece of chit. In the future take your cues from the word on the street. You deserve this one.... sorry. This will not be the last we hear of him

So Carey didn't mind selling a guy with "serious character flaws and health concerns", because it was money in the bank. The solution is just to "reshape his image", then sell him and his problems to the highest bidder?
