    Dolphins' Olivier Vernon: Shows promise with 7.5 sacks

    Vernon had a solid season in 2015 with 61 tackles and 7.5 sacks. Vernon once again played all 16 games, he has never missed a game in his career,and although the sacks weren't a career high (11.5 in 2013),the tackles were. The Dolphins leaned on Vernon more than usual to pressure the quarterback when Cameron Wake (Achilles) was lost for the season. With Ndamukong Suh, Wake, and Vernon, the defensive line should not be a high priority for an upgrade this off-season.

    Dolphins gets after QB in win

    The Dolphins rushed the passer well in Sunday's 33-20 win over the Patriots in Week 1, and Olivier Vernon and Chris McCain were part of the reason why. Vernon had one of the team's four sacks, to go with three solo tackles in the win. McCain, appearing in his first NFL game, made an impact on defense and special teams. He blocked a punt early in the game and came up with his first NFL sack later.
