2017 NFL Free Agency: Dolphins to visit with Zach Brown

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will be visiting with linebacker Zach Brown, according to a report from a former teammate of Brown’s at the University of North Carolina and confirmed by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

(S/N: Womble did correct the “and” to “in” in a subsequent tweet.)

Omar Kelly then adds that a league source confirmed the visit to him.

Brown visited with the Oakland Raiders last week, but no contract was signed and Brown left. According to another tweet from Womble, the offer was “downright disrespectful.” Brown spent the first four years of his career with the Tennessee Titants, who selected him in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He joined the Buffalo Bills last offseason on a one-year, $1.25 million contract.

He has 409 career tackles, along with seven interceptions with two touchdowns, 17 passes defensed, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and 14 sacks. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl last year.

Brown could be the third starter in Miami’s linebacker group, joining the recently signed Lawrence Timmons and restricted free agent Kiko Alonso, for whom the team traded last year and is said to be working a long-term contract this offseason.
