The Dolphins will host linebacker Shaquem Griffin on a visit today (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero). Griffin, 26, has spent the last three years with the Seahawks but remains available on the verge of training camp.
Griffin recently spent some time in Denver but left without a deal. For what it’s worth, Broncos coaches were reportedly impressed with his on-field work. The door may still be open there, but the Dolphins could snag him first.
Griffin has mostly played as a special teamer, or an on-ball linebacker when on defense. This year, he’s hoping to transition into a full-time pass-rusher. He’s suited up for a total of 46 games for the Seahawks across three seasons with one start. All in all, he’s notched 25 total tackles, one sack, and one pass defensed.
Both Griffin brothers played their entire pro careers with the Seahawks, up until now with the Seahawks. Earlier this year, twin brother Shaquill landed a big deal from Jacksonville to bolster their cornerback group.
