Miami Dolphins release DE Vonnie Holiday

He spent four years playing for the fins. From ESPN-

In the span of about 16 hours, two of the Miami Dolphins' most amiable and quotable players have hit the trail.

The Dolphins are releasing defensive end Vonnie Holliday for financial reasons. He was due a $1.5 million roster bonus Tuesday. On Sunday night, cornerback Andre Goodman signed a five-year, $25 million deal with the Denver Broncos.

Holliday and Goodman were the last two winners of the Good Guy Award, given out by the local Professional Football Writers Association chapter.

Holliday, who turned 33 in December, was a defensive captain last year. He recorded 46 tackles, 3.5 sacks and a fumble recovery.

But the Dolphins have several young players emerging at defensive end. They drafted Phillip Merling 32nd overall and Kendall Langford in the third round.

The real reason Miami made this roster move was to save 2.8 million dollars this year. Real smart move Miami, 7-9 in 2009 is looking pretty good right now.
