DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins have filled a need at linebacker.  

Miami traded for New Orleans Saints linebacker Stephone Anthony on Tuesday.

In exchange, the Saints got an undisclosed 2018 draft pick.

Anthony was a first-round pick by the Saints in the 2015 NFL draft and started all 16 games as a rookie.

The Dolphins suspended veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons on Tuesday.

The indefinite suspension happened because Timmons went AWOL from the team the day before the season opener.

Timmons did not play in Miami's opening game win.
