Dolphins bringing back linebacker Vince Biegel on one-year deal
The Dolphins made a move to address their pass-rush needs Monday by coming to terms on a one-year deal with linebacker Vince Biegel, a league source confirmed.
Biegel, 27, was acquired in 2019 from New Orleans for linebacker Kiko Alonso. Although he had only 2.5 sacks that season, he led the Dolphins with 13 quarterback hits and tied for the team lead with seven tackles for loss.
Biegel started 10 games that season and made 59 tackles.
Biegel missed the 2020 season after tearing his Achilles and being carted off the practice field during training camp. Biegel and fellow linebacker Kyle Van Noy were seen praying after the injury occurred.
"He brings energy," safety Eric Rowe said of Biegel. "Every day, consistent. Even last year when we traded for him, he brings energy every day. He can be gassed out, but he'll still go 110 percent on the field and that's what we need. Everybody sees it and we all know how hard he works and it kind of is a trickle-down effect."
