Analysis: Vernon hit the market after having his transition tag removed by Miami following the Dolphins' signing of Mario Williams on Tuesday. The 25-year-old amassed 29 sacks in four seasons with Miami, including 11.5 in 2013 and a team-high 7.5 last year. He joins defensive lineman Damon Harrison and cornerback Janoris Jenkins as new additions to a rebuilding defense.

Analysis: The transition tag was for $12.734 million, but the Dolphins withdrew the offer Wednesday, making it likely Vernon will depart after four seasons in Miami. He's expected to land one of the most lucrative deals in free agency this offseason. Last year, Vernon led the Dolphins with 7 1/2 sacks and 36 quarterback hits. His departure makes it more likely Miami will retain defensive end Cameron Wake, who is 34 and recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.
