At the opening of the free agency period last year, the Miami Dolphins made a huge splash by signing linebackers Philip Wheeler and Dannell Ellerbe. Per multiple media reports, they may be in the market for another linebacker this year as well.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, free agent linebacker D’Qwell Jackson formerly of the Cleveland Browns visited the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Jackson will be entering his 9th year in the NFL, and it will be his first not with the Cleveland Browns. The 6’0, 241lbs inside linebacker was released by the Browns early last week after a season in which he was 7th in the league in total tackles with 141. He has not missed a game in three seasons.
