Linebacker Zach Brown visiting Dolphins

The free agent market it circling the drain, so it makes sense that the guys left are starting to turn up in the same places as each other.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Bills free agent linebacker Zach Brown is visiting the Dolphins.

Brown has also visited the Raiders, who are hosting Dolphins linebacker Jelani Jenkins as well.

Brown’s the top player left on what used to be the Hot 100 Free Agent list, and is coming off an impressive season. He had 149 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles for the Bills.

The Dolphins invested in Lawrence Timmons, and putting Brown alongside him and Kiko Alonso would give them a strong trio.

  1. Make it happen. Jenkins hasn’t shown much and his health is becoming more of an issue each season

  2. sign this guy, he’s a very solid player and still only 27 years old. yeah this move may not make the dolphins SB contenders, but it puts them one step closer. it takes a whole team to win, so trolls go away please.

  3. A LB group consisting of Kiko, Timmons, and Brown would be light years ahead of what they were forced to put out on the field for most of the year last season.

    That’s very kind of you to say that this Miami Dolphins team is great.

  5. I loved Brown and am not sure why Whaley didn’t bring him back to Buffalo… Maybe he doesn’t fit their new scheme, but with Brown’s speed and reaction time that shouldn’t matter much. 149 tackles is a lot of tackles!

  6. If he signs Ill be excited about that trio at LB. However I wonder if Gase would discuss the matter with Kiko Alonzo 1st. Brown tweeted out a comment calling Kiko “soft” last season. Plus Kiko might not like all these big name LBs coming to town.

  7. This would make a lot of since to pick up Zach Brown. At 27 years of age he is still in his prime years, & would not have to shell out a ton of money for him. With a great draft full of defensive players in the up coming draft, the Dolphins don’t have to make LB a first or second round pick a must pick. They could still fined a great value pick in the later rounds & have 3 outstanding veteran LB’s to help groom them! It would free the team up to take a offensive lineman & DE/DT with first 2 picks to put very much needed depth at those 2 positions. Also, Nick Mangold is still out there, & the team should try & bring him in to either play a guard roll or backup center when Pouncey goes down. Time is short, & Tannenbaum needs to get things done before the draft!!! John

    And where did you see that? Only two people commented before you, one a packers fan, the other said “sign him……cause Jenkins sucks”……thanks for trollin kid.

  9. He and Alonso and Timmons would be one of the more athletic linebacking corps in the league. Timmons was pretty fast and agile (especially considering his size) when he broke into the league, less so now, but he has a little of that still. Alonso was freakishly athletic in Buffalo before his injury, and Zach Brown is a pretty fast linebacker too. If Miami could have gotten Timmons and Alonso from 2013 it’d be even better. But it’ll be a pretty good group of starters if they can all stay healthy. Good moves by Miami.

  10. This would be another solid move. But with no news, he probably didn’t sign. Definitely has size and speed on film. We’re slow at moment though, seems like my fins are done in free agency ..boo

  11. Looks like he can cover and, **cough** TACKLE.

    I’m so tired of watching 2 yard gains turn into 12 yard first downs because of bad tackling. Maybe this guy can help fix that.

    I hope not. If there is a problem, he should lead the team and handle it. Maybe it would spark a fire to improve…that cannot be a bad thing.

    I like what Gase is doing. Seems he likes accountability. I liked him at the time of hire but when he left Ajayi at home for game 1 because he pouted and then, after a couple losses, CUT a couple offensive linemen (starters the year prior and still in the mix) in mid OCTOBER, I became a big fan of his. That sent the message to the fans and the players that the old ways are gone. The team responded with a good run to the playoffs. I hope for similar leadership this year.
