The Miami Dolphins acted quick with the cap space they gained Friday following the release of defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh earlier this offseason.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins have signed starting cornerback Bobby McCain to a four-year, $27 million deal with $13 million guaranteed.

McCain, 24, was a fifth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2015. He has started 19 games in three NFL seasons, recording a grand total of 111 tackles, 17 passes defended and three interceptions in the process.
It’s a mighty high price to pay for a player that has not yet started over the course of an entire season. But McCain’s talent is clear. Miami locks him up well beyond the end of his rookie deal.
