The Dolphins have come to a deal with one of the three remaining unsigned draft picks, DE Olivier Vernon.
Vernon, a former University of Miami standout the Dolphins selected in the third round, agreed to terms on a standard four-year contract, according to a league source.
Vernon, who left UM as a junior, will receiver a $638,080 signing bonus, and will net just over a million dollars in his first NFL season. The entire four-year deal is worth $2,848,080.
Vernon, had 82 tackles, nine sacks and one interception in the 30 games he played as a Hurricane, is expected to fill the role Jason Taylor held last season as Miami’s pass rushing specialist. That means he’ll likely be paired with Cameron Wake as a rush end on obvious passing downs.
