We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.
2014 was Vernon's third year with the Dolphins.
He started in all 16 games and recorded 46 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.
Why he might progress:
Offenses will have two threats to deal with, Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake.
With both those guys getting double teamed, it opens up things for Vernon.
Why he might regress:
Vernon dealt with a few injuries back in 2013. Needs to avoid playing hurt.
Chances he makes the 53-man roster:
Vernon will be the other starting defensive end, opposite Cameron Wake, when the 2015 season begins.
