The Dolphins and outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy agreed to terms on a deal to reunite the linebacker with his former coach Brian Flores. The deal is for 4 years and $51 million with $30 million guaranteed. Van Noy had 6.5 sacks with the Patriots last season and can get after the quarterback as well as play in space. The additions of Van Noy and Shaq Lawson today improves the Dolphins pass rush heading into the 2020 season.
