Dolphins Cutting Emmanuel Ogbah Ahead of 2024 Free Agency

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah will be cut by the Miami Dolphins on Friday.

In March 2022, Ogbah signed a four-year, $65 million contract with the team; nevertheless.

in the previous two seasons, he had only accumulated 6.5 total sacks in 24 games.

The 30-year-old pass-rusher's release frees about $14 million in cap space for the Dolphins, who are trying to stay under the salary cap.

The writing was seemingly on the wall for Ogbah, as his playing time drastically dropped in 2023.

due to his inability to distinguish himself in Vic Fangio's new 3-4 scheme.

Fangio has moved on to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, but he will still be searching for a new place to call home.

Pro Football Reference reports that Ogbah only participated in a career-low 25% of Miami's defensive snaps in 2023.
