The Miami Dolphins have released linebacker Kyle Van Noy after one season into his four-year, $51 million contract.
That deal included a $5.5 million signing bonus and $15 million fully guaranteed.
The move clears $9.775 million in cap space for the Dolphins, and it could increase to $12.525 million is Van Noy is designated a post-June 1 release.
The almost 30-year-old missed two games last season with groin and hip injuries, but he had 69 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 10 QB hits, and two forced fumbles.
Seems like Miami expected more from the outside linebacker, but he should receive interest in the free agency market.
However, Van Noy likely won’t see the salary digits that he saw when he first signed with Miami.
- Marcus Mariota takes a pay cut from the Raiders
- Giants sign Adoree’ Jackson to $39M contract
- Packers sign Aaron Jones to four-year $48M deal
