In an absolute shocking move, the Miami Dolphins have informed Kyle Van Noy he is being released. Van Noy came over as a free agent from the New England Patriots in 2020 off season. Van Noy had 69 tackles and 6 sacks last year for the team. Cameron Wolfe from ESPN hinted at the potential release, which was made official from NFL Network’s Mike Garafalo:

I'm told a pay cut was discussed with Kyle Van Noy, who is prepared to move on. Trade options still being explored but release coming if none found. His tenure in Miami was short-lived.
More cap space for Dolphins to use in free agency. A good draft for versatile LBs too.

The move gives the Dolphins flexibility in salary cap space. The move has created 9.5M dollars in money to spend in free agency. Andrew Van Ginkel could be playing a larger role in 2021 and the team will look to add more depth to the linebacking group.
