It appears the Miami Dolphins have Kyle Van Noy in a bit of a limbo.
“The Dolphins have not yet released outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy because the team is trying to trade him,” Yates on Thursday reported. “Van Noy is due a $12.5M salary this year.
“A tough trade to pull off even for a productive and respected player, but the Dolphins are trying.”
Also tough thanks to those reports about how they wanted to release him anyways. But perhaps a team out there wants to work out a package with some additional draft picks.
Van Noy was “surprised and disappointed” upon hearing the team wanted to go in a different direction after one season. Former Patriots teammates have suggested they’d like to see him come back, and Van Noy reportedly hasn’t ruled out a return to New England.
Van Noy earned two Super Bowls in 3 1/2 seasons with the New England, including a career year in 2019.
One way or another, it looks like he won’t be in Miami any longer. We’ll see how it all plays out.
