Within the first few minutes of the NFL free agent tampering period, star edge rusher Emmanuel Ogbah has himself a shiny new contract.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Ogbah has re-signed with the Miami Dolphins. The deal is said to be worth $65 million over four seasons.

One of the top free agents pass rushers of this class, Ogbah has been a godsent in his two seasons with the Dolphins. That span has seen the former Cleveland Browns second-round pick tally 45 quarterback hits and 18 sacks.

Miami was $48 million under the NFL salary cap before re-signing Ogbah. He was one of their core free agents to retain for a defense that played exceedingly well last season under former head coach Brian Flores.

The idea for Miami is to continue building a bully in the defensive front under new head coach Mike McDaniel.

Is Tom Brady the greatest of all time or a cheater?

Prior to joining Miami, Ogbah spent three seasons with the Cleveland Browns and one season with the Kansas City Chiefs. He recorded a mere 18 sacks during that four-year span. Once the former Texas star arrived in South Beach, he turned things around big time. He’s now being rewarded for it.
