MIAMI, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Defensive tackle Vonnie Holliday has signed a four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, the NFL team announced Wednesday.
Holliday started all 16 games for a Miami defense that was ranked fourth in the league in 2006. He was fourth on the team with 66 tackles and seven sacks.
A one-time first-round draft pick of Green Bay, Holliday has played in 123 games with the Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and Dolphins, registering 475 tackles, 49 1/2 sacks, two interceptions, nine fumble recoveries and six forced fumbles.
"I'm happy we were able to sign Vonnie to this new contract ..." said Miami Coach Cam Cameron. "Not only has he been a major part of one of the league's top defensive units the last two years, but he also has been one of the key veteran leaders in the locker room."
