Dolphins Sign Emmanuel Ogbah

The Miami Dolphins are signing pass-rusher Emmanuel Ogbah, according to Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network. The deal came to fruition after Ogbah's successful workout with the team on Monday. Miami was in need of reinforcements on defense with Jaelan Phillips (Achilles) and Bradley Chubb (knee) not expected to be ready for Week 1, and Shaquil Barrett unexpectedly announcing his retirement last weekend. Ogbah spent the last four seasons in Miami before being released at the start of the offseason. In 2023, he played 15 games, tallying one interception, one forced fumble, and 5.5 sacks. The 30-year-old will compete for a starting job to take some of the pressure off rookies Chop Robinson and Mohamed Kamara in 2024.

Emmanuel Ogbah To Work Out For Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins will host free-agent edge rusher Emmanuel Ogbah for a workout on Monday, according to a source. Ogbah could fill a much-needed pass-rush void for the Dolphins after Shaq Barrett announced his retirement on Saturday. The 30-year-old veteran was productive in a limited role last year in Miami and produced 5.5 sacks on just 25 percent of the defensive snaps, and he could be more productive if he re-signs under new defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver. In addition to his 5.5 sacks last year, the former second-round selection (32nd overall) by the Cleveland Browns in 2016 out of Oklahoma State had 20 tackles (seven solo), nine QB hits, an interception and a forced fumble in 15 games (one start). The Dolphins cut Ogbah back in February in a move to save salary cap space.

Emmanuel Ogbah Could Be Cut

The Athletic's Jim Ayello speculates that Miami Dolphins defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah could be a salary cap casualty this offseason. The Dolphins are sitting at around $51 million over the cap, and cutting Ogbah would net the team around $13.7 million in cap space while costing them just under $4 million in dead money. If they designate him a post-June cut, they could save $15.7 million against the cap this year. The 30-year-old pass-rusher had 5.5 sacks last season and a respectable 13.9 percent pressure rate, he only played 22.2 percent of the team's defensive snaps in 2023 and isn't a player the Dolphins can afford to keep with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's long-term extension looming.

Dolphins Plan To Release Emmanuel Ogbah

The Miami Dolphins plan to release veteran linebacker Emmanuel Ogbah on Friday, according to a source. The Dolphins signed Ogbah to a four-year, $65 million deal after he had back-to-back nine-sack seasons in 2020 and 2021. The 30-year-old former second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2016 out of Oklahoma State played in only nine games (three starts) in 2022 and had one sack. In 15 games (one start) in his fourth year in Miami in 2023, Ogbah produced just 20 tackles (seven solo), 5.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, nine QB hits, one interception and a forced fumble. Since entering the NFL in 2016 with Cleveland, Ogbah has 42.5 career sacks in 107 games (71 starts) with the Browns, Chiefs and Dolphins.

Emmanuel Ogbah Suffers Season-Ending Injury

Miami Dolphins defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah (triceps) is done for the year. The 28-year-old suffered a torn tricep during Sunday's win over Cleveland and will require season-ending surgery. Ogbah will finish the year with 11 total tackles and one sack, so his absence isn't a significant loss for IDP managers.

Dolphins, Emmanuel Ogbah Reach Four-Year Deal

The Miami Dolphins and defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah agreed to a four-year, $65 million deal on Monday that includes $32 million fully guaranteed at signing, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Obgah has really emerged with the Dolphins in the last two seasons, recording nine sacks in each of the last two years after he was originally a second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2016 out of Oklahoma State. The 28-year-old had 41 tackles (26 solo), 12 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 17 games in 2021. Ogbah is a big part of Miami's improving defense.

Emmanuel Ogbah Wants To Stay With Dolphins

Miami Dolphins defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, who signed a two-year, $15 million deal in the offseason, said he wants to stay in Miami for the long haul. Ogbah has broke out in 2020 with eight sacks in nine games, trailing only Myles Garrett and T.J. Watt in the AFC. The 27-year-old former first-round pick of Cleveland in 2016 never topped 5.5 sacks in his previous four seasons. "He's got versatility," head coach Brian Flores said. "He can play inside, outside. He's tough. He plays against the run." Ogbah has also forced three fumbles this year and leads the team with 21 pressures. He currently ranks fourth among all defensive lineman in overall fantasy points in IDP leagues. Ogbah has become a weekly starter in those fantasy formats and has a good matchup against Denver this weekend.

Emmanuel Ogbah Agrees With Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins agreed to a two-year, $15 million deal with defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah on Tuesday. The deal includes $7.5 million in guarantees. Ogbah played in 10 games (four starts) for the world champion Chiefs in 2019 and tied a career high with 5.5 sacks while also tallying 32 tackles (23 solo) and one forced fumble. He won't move the needle much in IDP leagues. Miami has clearly made upgrading the defense a priority in free agency, already adding Ogbah, Kyle Van Noy, Shaq Lawson and Byron Jones. It won't make them immediately draft-worthy in fantasy, but they should definitely improve in 2020.

Chiefs Acquire Emmanuel Ogbah Monday

The Kansas City Chiefs acquired defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah from the Cleveland Browns on Monday in exchange for safety Eric Murray, according to a source. Ogbah was expendable once the Browns acquired pass rusher Olivier Vernon from the Giants. The 25-year-old has 12.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries in his three seasons with the Chiefs and is hoping for a new start in KC. Murray, also 25, had a career-best 55 tackles and one interception in his third season as he was forced into considerable playing time due to Eric Berry's injuries. Murray figures to see a big role for the safety-needy Browns.

Emmanuel Ogbah Anticipates Being Traded

Cleveland Browns defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah didn't report to the start of the team's offseason program on Monday in anticipation of being traded in the future, according to a source. The 25-year-old has only 12.5 combined sacks in three seasons with the Browns after being a second-round pick in 2016. He's expendable after the club traded for Olivier Vernon this offseason.
