Report: Vilma was interested in Dolphins, who weren’t interested in Vilma


At a time when the Cowboys perhaps should be interested in veteran linebacker Jonathan Vilma, Vilma has shown interest in another team. But that team has shown no interest in him.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Vilma’s representatives at some point in the offseason reached out to the Dolphins. The Dolphins, however, passed on Vilma -- the same way they passed on a pair of other former University of Miami linebackers, Jonathan Vilma and Darryl Sharpton.

Vilma wasn’t cut by the Saints; his contract expired on March 11. As of June 1, his signing by a new team won’t count against the formula for determining compensatory draft pick.
