Kyle Van Noy is bound for the other side of the AFC East.

The ex-New England Patriots linebacker has agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins, sources told NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport on Monday night.

It is a four-year deal worth a reported $51 million for Van Noy that carries $30 million guaranteed.

Van Noy reunites with Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, his former linebackers coach in New England, along with past Patriots teammates that include the likes of Nate Brooks, Trent Harris, Ryan Lewis, Eric Rowe, Calvin Munson, Jomal Wiltz and Ken Webster.

Van Noy started all 15 games he appeared in for New England last season. The 28-year-old recorded 56 tackles to go with a career-high 6.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and three pass deflections in the process.

His 814 snaps ranked third on the defense behind only safety Devin McCourty and cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

Van Noy originally entered the league as a Detroit Lions second-round selection in the 2014 draft. A trade from Detroit to New England arrived for the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Brigham Young product in October 2016. It involved the exchange of pick No. 215 overall for pick No. 239 overall.

It gave way to one contract extension and a pair of Super Bowl rings.

The 2020 league year opens at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday. And so will Van Noy’s tenure as a Dolphin.
