Dolphins Place LB Vince Biegel On IR

To make room for Saturday trade acquisition Greg Mancz, the Dolphins are placing Vince Biegel on IR. This move will sideline the veteran linebacker for the season.

Biegel has not played in a regular-season game since the 2019 season. He suffered a torn Achilles’ tendon in August 2020. Although the Dolphins re-signed Biegel, he is no longer in their 2021 plans. The fifth-year ‘backer could resurface with another team in the event of an injury settlement removing him from Miami’s IR list, however.

The Dolphins initially acquired Biegel via trade from the Saints just before the 2019 season began. Biegel spent 2018 with New Orleans and 2017 with Green Bay. The Packers drafted the Wisconsin product in the 2017 fourth round. Despite having just three years’ worth of game experience, Biegel is already 28.

The Dolphins marked the only team to use Biegel as a starter, deploying him as a first-stringer in 10 games in 2019. Biegel made 59 tackles and registered 13 quarterback hits that season, compiling 2.5 sacks for the then-rebuilding team. The Dolphins have made a few changes to their linebacking group in the time since, however.

Dolphins To Re-Sign LB Vince Biegel

The Dolphins will re-sign linebacker Vince Biegel, as Josh Tolentino of The Athletic tweets. It’s a one-year deal for the veteran as he looks to rebound from a lost season.

Biegel suffered an Achilles’ tendon tear last August, stopping his 2020 campaign before it even began. Previous to that, the former Packers draftee started ten games for the Dolphins in 2019 and led the team with 13 quarterback hits. It was a big step forward — Biegel had zero QB hits in 2017 or 2018. He finished 2019 with 59 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one interception.

Biegel bounced from the Packers, to the Saints, to the Dolphins, but he now seems to have made a home for himself in Miami. If Biegel performs on his one-year, prove-it deal, he could be in line for a much larger pay day next March.

Dolphins’ Vince Biegel Tears Achilles

The Dolphins are set to be without a key defensive role player this season. Linebacker Vince Biegel suffered an Achilles’ tendon tear Tuesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic tweets.

A fourth-year defender, Biegel started 10 games for the Dolphins last season. He led the team with 13 quarterback hits. The former Packers draftee entered 2019 without any QB hits in his previous two seasons.

Biegel and the Dolphins were discussing an extension in January. While the pandemic prompted many teams to table extension talks, Biegel’s value will take a serious hit with Tuesday’s news. The Dolphins tendered the former fourth-round pick as an RFA this offseason.

While the Dolphins featured plenty of opportunities for previously under-the-radar players to see playing time last season, they featured some experience at linebacker in Raekwon McMillan and Jerome Baker. Biegel still played 56% of Miami’s defensive snaps — after previously never clearing the 12% threshold while with the Packers and Saints — and recorded 59 tackles and an interception.

Dolphins LB Vince Biegel Signs RFA Tender

Vince Biegel will play next season under the RFA tender. The restricted free agent linebacker signed his deal with the Dolphins today (per the team’s Twitter account). Biegel will earn around $2.13MM next season.

We heard back in January that the two sides were working on a long-term, and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald tweets that that was indeed the case. However, the two sides couldn’t agree to terms, resulting in today’s transaction. Biegel was initially tendered at his original-round level by the Dolphins back in March.

The 2017 fourth-round pick spent his first two professional seasons in a backup role for the Packers and Saints. Prior to the start of the 2019 regular season, he was traded to Miami for Kiko Alonso, and he proceeded to have the best season of his career. The 26-year-old established career-highs across the board, finishing with 59 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one interception in 15 games (10 starts).

Biegel isn’t the first restricted free agent to sign his tender with the Dolphins. Last week, punter Matt Haack inked his new deal with Miami.
