Draft Scout News
01/04/16 - DE Olivier Vernon (7.0 sacks) completed his rookie contract and could enter free agency. Vernon was among the league leaders in quarterback hits, but not sacks. Still, he thinks he might be positioned for a big-money contract.
11/18/15 - DE Olivier Vernon is struggling to put up big numbers in the final year of his contract. Vernon, who had a career-best 11.5 sacks in 2013, has only two sacks this season. His career low was 3.5 sacks as a rookie in 2012. Vernon had 6.5 sacks last season.
11/09/15 - DE Olivier Vernon, expected to carry more of the load with DE Cam Wake (Achilles) sidelined, had seven tackles, including two for losses, vs. Buffalo. But he didn't have a sack.
10/31/15 - DE Olivier Vernon had a sack against New England on Thursday, and Miami will need lots more of that with DE Cam Wake (Achilles tendon) out for the season. Vernon, who is in a contract year, has two sacks this season.
10/19/15 - DE Olivier Vernon was flagged early in Sunday's game when he took a shot at Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota's knees. The Dolphins and Titans did lots of chirping after the play.
"It was BS," Tennessee head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "I think it should be taken out of the game. It's not the way you play football. I think it was done with the idea of trying to hurt our quarterback."
Some think the aggression and intensity Miami interim coach Dan Campbell preached during the week spilled over a little too much with that play. But Vernon, who registered his first sack of the season later in the game, said the hit wasn't meant to cross the line.
"I've never been a dirty player in my whole career," he said, "so why would I start now?"
