It was widely speculated that the Jets would re-sign Douglas, their fourth-leading tackler last season and a strong locker-room presence, but the team showed no interest.

Former Jets defensive end Marques Douglas, an unrestricted free agent, signed a two-year, $2.5 million contract Friday with the Dolphins, according to a league source.
