Kyle Van Noy reportedly will be released by Dolphins after one season


The Kyle Van Noy era in Miami did not last all that long.

According to NFL Media's Mike Garafolo, the Dolphins have told the veteran linebacker he will be released.

The linebacker since confirmed the news with a statement.

"I am surprised and disappointed in their decision," he said. "As a captain, I gave my all to the team. I fought through a painful hip injury during the season, including spending the night in the hospital after a game. I was brought there to be a leader and I know my teammates looked up to and respected me. I am looking forward to making an impact on my next team, on and off the field."

Van Noy signed a four-year, $51 million deal last offseason, but only $15 million was guaranteed.

In 14 games last year, the linebacker recorded 69 tackles and six sacks. His best years came with the Patriots, including 2019 when he had a career-high 6.5 sacks.

Van Noy will turn 30 years old this month.
