In a surprise move Miami has informed LB and Defensive leader Kyle Van Noy that they will be releasing him. Van Noy was one of the defensive leaders who helped establish a new culture and identity and not only were many of us surprised so was Kyle who said about the move “I am surprised and disappointed in their decision,” Van Noy said, via Mike Garafolo of NFL Media. “As a captain, I gave my all to the team. I fought through a painful hip injury during the season, including spending a night in the hospital after a game. I was brought there to be a leader and I know my teammates looked up to and respected me. I am looking forward to making an impact on my next team”
Miami saves just under $10 million in cap space with the move so they obviously have plans to go in a different direction and it open up the door for players like Andrew Van Ginkel to get more playing time and it also might be a sign that a LB is going to be targeted in free agency and or the draft.
On a personal note, I did not like Van Noy’s attitude he came across to me as somewhat of a jerk and I wondered if he was one of the players who undermined the decision to start Tua as some privately complained about that move. Either way he is gone and I am not sure it’s that big of a loss considering his production (solid) and age (he will turn 30 later this month) and what they were paying him.
Maybe that creates room to retain the younger Davon Godchaux?
I can assure you this will not be the only surprise, things will start to heat up as free agency approaches…stay tuned!
