Summary

Vernon broke out in 2013 with 45 solo tackles and 10 sacks, but came back to Earth last year with just 31 solos and 6.5 sacks. His level of play was better than the production indicated, however. so he could easily get back to double digit sacks this year, particularly with Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake playing alongside him. A good, young, 2-way player who happens to be entering the final year of his rookie deal should make a decent DE2 for your fantasy team. (May 21)

Dolphins | No discussions with Olivier Vernon (Wed Jul 29, 01:41 AM) - Miami Dolphins DE Olivier Vernon is due to become an unrestricted free agent next season, but the team has not had any discussions on a contract extension.

Our View: With 18 sacks over the last two seasons, the Dolphins are hopeful they can keep Vernon. If he has another strong season, we could see Vernon get a contract similar to Cameron Jordan's new deal with the Saints (5-year, $55 million with $33.5 million guaranteed).
