The Miami Dolphins avoided a monster-movie style, pitch-form armed mob on Thursday with work from agent Ian Greengross via the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson that they had re-signed long snapper John Denney. The 2005 undrafted free agent signing by the team has not missed a game in his career, playing in all 192 possible contests. He is a fan favorite, and his re-signing will be welcome news.

Denney has been selected to two Pro Bowls and is among the top long snappers in the league, despite his being 38 years old - or old for football players. A BYU product, Denney has the team record for straight games played, a record that will continue to grow in 2017.

Free agency in the NFL opened at 4pm ET, and chaos is reigning, with players agreeing to terms and visits all over the league. The good news is, there continues to be stability for the Dolphins.
