The Miami Dolphins are meeting with free agent linebacker Lawrence Timmons on Friday. According to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, Timmons is not the only linebacker with whom Miami is hoping to visit. Jackson writes the Dolphins are hoping to host former Bills linebacker Zach Brown on a free agent visit as well, thought he points out “nothing [is] set in stone.”
Brown was the second-round selection of the Tennessee Titans in 2012. He played four years for Tennessee before signing a one-year contract last offseason with the Bills. For his career, he has 409 tackles, 14 sacks, seven interceptions with two touchdowns, 17 passes defensed, four forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries. He was selected to the Pro Bowl last year, starting all 16 games for Buffalo with 149 tackles, four sacks, one interception, four passes defensed, and two forced fumbles.
Miami is looking to upgrade their linebacker play from 2016, which could include the addition of two new starters. The team is also working to sign incumbent middle linebacker Kiko Alonso to a long-term contract after placing a first-round tender on him as a restricted free agent.
