DAVIE, Fla. (AP) _ The Miami Dolphins signed defensive end Jay Williams to a three-year contract extension Monday through 2005. Terms were not disclosed.

The Dolphins acquired Williams, 31, on Friday from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for defensive end Al Wallace and a fourth-round draft choice in 2003.

After obtaining Williams, the Dolphins released defensive end Daryl Gardener, who was expected to start but had alienated teammates and coaches.

The Dolphins open training camp Friday.
