Ethan Kilmer Contract Update

Updating a previous item, recently signed safety Ethan Kilmer received a two-year contract from the Dolphins. The deal includes base salaries of $460,000 (2009) and $545,000 (2010). He will be eligible for unrestricted free agency in the 2011 offseason if he plays out the entire contract.

As previously reported, Kilmer was signed by the Dolphins on Jan. 19. The three-year veteran was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Penn State. He will compete for a backup safety job in Miami and will play special teams.
