The Miami Dolphins are moving on from linebacker Kyle Van Noy just one year after he signed a four-year, $51 million deal in free agency.

Van Noy released a statement Tuesday afternoon through NFL Network that he was informed of his release and was "surprised and disappointed" with the Dolphins' decision. He mentioned he gave his all to Miami in his one season there as a captain and fought through a painful hip injury.

Van Noy, 29, has not officially been released yet while the team explores the trade market, a source told ESPN, although if a trade isn't found his release will happen in the coming days. Van Noy's departure will save Miami $9.75 million in cap space, raising their total to more than $36 million.
