NEW ORLEANS (KLFY) – The New Orleans Saints have traded linebacker Stephone Anthony to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a 2018 undisclosed draft pick.
Anthony is in his third season in the NFL.
Over the course of his first 2 seasons, the Clemson product appeared in 26 games, starting in 19 of them.
In that time, Anthony posted 169 tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception, 7 passes defensed, 1 fumble recovery for a touchdown, and 3 special teams tackles.
This season Anthony was inactive for the Saints first 2 games of the regular season due to injury.
He heads to Miami as a potential replacement to linebacker Lawrence Timmons.
Timmons was suspended indefinitely after going AWOL from the Dolphins last week.
