Dolphins rescind transition tag on Olivier Vernon
The Miami Dolphins rescinded the transition tag they had on defensive end Olivier Vernon. The team picked up $12.7 million in salary cap space as he becomes the top unrestricted free agent still unattached to a team. Agent David Canter has long been wanting this to happen. The New York Giants are one of his primary suitors. The Dolphins on Tuesday signed defensive end Mario Williams to a two-year, $17 million contract. The deal contains a $4 million signing bonus and has a $4.85 million base salary for 2016. It also has a $15,000 workout bonus this year.
