Lansanah was signed by Miami just days ago, after he beat out Brandon Spikes and Jerry Franklin for the team’s open linebacker spot. Lansanah, soon-to-be 31, 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.
McClendon spent time in Miami in 2015, but didn’t see much action. In the spring, the Dolphins signed McClendon to a one-year deal, but it seems like they are more focused on Jermon Bushrod and Kraig Urbik, who were also signed this offseason. Bushrod is pushing for a starting job at right guard while Urbik is slated for a reserve role.
