Last season, the Dolphins sent a 2018 fifth-round pick to the New Orleans Saints, in exchange for former first-round draft pick, Stephone Anthony. Anthony had a limited role with the Dolphins, and finished the year with 15 tackles. It appears he showed enough promise in 2017 to warrant a role on special teams this year , in addition to added depth at the linebacker position. However, his future with the team became a bit more hazy on Wednesday, when the Dolphins declined to exercise his fifth-year option.
According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Stephone Anthony is set to become a free agent in 2019.

If Anthony balls out in 2018, there is always the possibility the Dolphins will re-sign the 25-year old linebacker. But for now, his future with the team is in jeopardy.
