The Miami Dolphins have announced the signing of their seventh-round selection from the 2014 NFL Draft, defensive end Terrence Fede. Coming out of Marist College, the 6'4", 267 pound Fede played in 41 games, with 34 starts, at Marist. He becomes the fourth member of the Dolphins' draft class to sign their rookie contract.
He was quickly joined by defensive back Walt Aikens, according to a report from the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Aikens, who had to leave the first day of rookie minicamp, likely due to the South Florida heat, played cornerback at Liberty and gives the Dolphins a bigger bodied cornerback with his 6'1", 200 pound frame. Aikens was the team's fourth-round pick, and is the fifth member of the class to sign with Miami.
According to Over The Cap's rookie salary estimate, Fede's four-year contract should have a total value around $2.275 million. Aiken's deal is estimated to be four-years, $2.635 million.
The Dolphins have first-round selection Ja'Wuan James, second-round pick Jarvis Landry, and third-round selection Billy Turner remaining to sign. James' future deal should be for around $8.43 million over four-years, with a fifth-year team option. Landry and Turner will both sign four-year contracts, for around $3.47 million and $3.14 million, respectively.
