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.
