Plenty of people have moved from New Jersey to South Florida to live out their retirement in a sunny and warm climate.
One formerly Jersey-based linebacker is seeing if he can make the same move while continuing his playing career. Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that Spencer Paysinger is visiting with the Dolphins on Thursday.
Paysinger played in 62 games for the Giants over the last four years after initially making the team as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon. He started 10 games on defense during the 2013 season, making 74 tackles and a sack while playing outside in the Giants’ alignment. He played just a handful of snaps on defense last year, however, and the Giants made other moves at linebacker early in free agency to signal a new approach at the position.
The Dolphins need to round out their depth at linebacker after parting ways with Dannell Ellerbe, Jason Trusnik, Jonathan Freeny and Philip Wheeler this offseason. Paysinger would provide that and special teams experience should he join the other snowbirds in the Sunshine State.
