The Miami Dolphins will not be adding free agent linebacker Zach Brown, who had spent the last couple of weeks mulling over offers from the Oakland Raiders and the Dolphins. Instead, it was a surprise team that landed the former Buffalo Bills Pro Bowler. According to Brown’s agent, the Washington Redskins, on Monday, came to terms with Brown.
The Dolphins and Brown clearly were looking for different value in a free agency contract, with Miami not wanting to exceed their internal price point for the five-year veteran. Brown had been looking for $8 million a season, though there were reports that he would lower that to $6 million per year.
Miami signed former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a two-year, $12-million contract this offseason. They also re-signed Kiko Alonso to a four-year, $28.9 million contract this year.
Contract details for Brown’s deal with the Redskins have not been reported.
