One of the most desirable pass rushers of this year’s free agent class won’t even hit the open market.

Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah has agreed to a four-year deal worth $65 million with $32 million fully guaranteed, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Ogbah recorded 9.0 sacks in each of his last two seasons with the Dolphins. He also had 24 quarterback hits, nine tackles for loss, 12 passes defensed, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery for Miami in 2021.

After starting his career as a Browns second-round pick in 2016, Ogbah spent a season with the Chiefs in 2019 before heading to Miami.

Ogbah was rated as PFT’s No. 17 free agent on this year’s top 100 list.

In 83 career games with 67 starts, Ogbah has 36.0 sacks, 85 quarterback hits, 37 tackles for loss, and seven forced fumbles.

  1. good to hear, i think the fans are happy as well. what does it do for the salary cap now? and with this signing and the couple of major needs i dont think armstead is viable now at over 20 mil a year probably closer to 25 mil. a trade for collins for a late pick may be the way to go now since he will cost 10 mil a year

  2. Smart move by Fins. Keeping the D together and adding some additional pieces could make this defense a solid top 5 in the league.

  3. Great move by the new regime in Miami!! i think the Phins are gonna be good again

  4. Well Grier disregarded the Dave Wansted book of: “Player Personnel Decisions” well this time anyway.
