The Dolphins are signing linebacker Kyle Van Noy to a four-year, $51 million deal, NFL Media reports.

Miami has had an active day on the first day of the negotiating window. The Dolphins also agreed to terms with cornerback Byron Jones (five years, $82.5 million), edge rusher Shaq Lawson (three years, $30 million) and offensive lineman Ereck Flowers (three years, $30 million).

Van Noy 28, reunites with Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, who previously was a defensive assistant in New England.

The Lions traded Van Noy to the Patriots in 2016.

He appeared in 51 games with 45 starts in New England, making 221 tackles, 16.5 sacks, two interceptions and five forced fumbles.

In 15 games last season, Van Noy made 56 tackles, 6.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and three pass breakups.

  1. Bill is sitting back doing what he always does during Free Agency – NOTHING. He will then attempt to put together a team with the scrubs that are left after the dust settles. A note to Tom Brady – RUN AWAY…Get as far away as you can because the Patriots appear to be doing nothing like usual to build a winner. They will attempt to take practice squad guys and put together a patchwork group capable of winning games, but not quite capable of getting over the top without Tom Brady being Mr. Incredible. Not worth it bro go somewhere that’s closer to winning, and right now San Diego, and the Raiders are both closer than the Patriots are

  2. Patriots weren’t matching that. No way.

    Good luck KVN and thanks for the last couple years and a Super Bowl!

  3. New England had trouble with Flores’ talentless roster.

    Ummm Tom Brady just gained some leverage. Unless Belicheat is planning a tank year.

  4. Elite player but BB wasn’t matching that dough and needs to spend more on offense anyway.

  5. BB traded a 6 Td pick for KVN . He played in three Super Bowls , won 2 and more importantly was rejuvenated as a football player as he was rusting away in Detroit. KVN now gets paid and takes care of his family for life and BB gets another 3rd rd comp pick . Win win for all around .

  6. Yeah, that BB guy doesn’t have a clue how to win a SB! Love to hear it every year. Doom and gloom in NE and when they hoist the Lomabardi all the haters will say It’s coming to an end.

  7. Surprised TyLawpick6 not in here with his usual parroting of how BB is a genius, and Van Noy sucked, anyway.

  8. KVN was a fine player here, he took to the coaching and did his job. Best of everything to him.

    two of em!

  10. Congratulations to him its a win win the Pat’s got the trophies and he got his pay day thanks for sb memories!

  11. How many trophies has BB raised without Brady? Let’s keep these guys togeth!

  12. Expect the initial focus of the draft to be on LB, TE and D Line. Stidham worked well with the existing WR’s in training camp last year, so no longer as high a priority. Maybe one of the third round picks there.
