According to Baltimore Sun and Fox Sports reporter Aaron Wilson, the Miami Dolphins have agreed to terms with former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. While the focus for Dolphins fans, has been on Mike Wallace and the offense, the signing of Ellerbe is a great move for Miami.

The deal with Ellerbe is said to be for "multiple years." Ellerbe had wanted to return to Baltimore, but will now be heading to Miami.
