In need of pass-rush help, the Miami Dolphins have reportedly set their sights on a veteran free agent.

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports the team is in talks with former Green Bay Packers EDGE Nick Perry.

Perry, 29, was released by the Packers in March after seven years in Wisconsin, only two years into a five-year, $60 million deal.

A native of Detroit, Perry appeared in nine games for the Packers last season, recording 24 combined tackles and 1.5 sacks. Perry finished 10th in the league in sacks in 2016 with 11.0.

The fit for Perry with the Dolphins could be enticing with former Packers linebacker coach Patrick Graham now the defensive coordinator with the Dolphins.

The Dolphins' interest in Perry comes with the departures of Cameron Wake, signing with the Tennessee Titans in free agency, and Robert Quinn, traded to the Dallas Cowboys in March.
