Earlier today, the Dolphins auditioned a trio of linebackers, including Brandon Spikes and former Lions LB Jerry Franklin. Though it has yet to be confirmed, Lansanah was likely the third player involved in those auditions. After signing Lansanah, Miami might not have a spot for Spikes or Franklin.

Lansanah, 31 in a few weeks, has spent the last two seasons and change with Tampa Bay. Over the last two years, Lansanah has appeared in every regular season game for the Bucs, making 22 total starts. In 2014, Lansanah recorded three interceptions, eight pass breakups, 1.5 sacks, and 81 total tackles. His production tailed off last season, though he still notched 47 tackles, one sack, and four pass breakups.

    Nice signing. Get a player that played recently, started last 2 years. Remember him from Uconn, who I also follow.

    Spikes is just a name of someone that used to be good. Maybe this Lansanah guy can provide some depth. At this point we need to have people to fill in for the injured without a terrible drop off. Hate to say it but when an average LB goes down, you want at least an equivalent guy coming in. Sounds depressing but there it is. Maybe we get on a roll and sign Leon Hall at CB.
