Dolphins Trade for Saints LB Stephone Anthony After Suspending Lawrence Timmons

On Tuesday afternoon, the Dolphins announced that the team had suspended linebacker Lawrence Timmons indefinitely after he went AWOL last weekend. The veteran linebacker was reportedly not in his hotel room during Saturday night bed check, which caused the team to then file a missing persons report, and then he did not show up to the team’s game against the Chargers. Timmons was eventually found at the airport, waiting to board a flight to Pennsylvania to see his daughter, according to reports.

A suspension seemed like an inevitable—albeit potentially harsh—conclusion after Dolphins head coach Adam Gase sternly said he has “two rules … be on time and play hard” when asked about the Timmons situation after Sunday’s game. However, according to the rules of the CBA, even though the Timmons’ suspension is labeled as “indefinite,” the max amount of games he can be forced to miss is only four.

In response to Timmons’s suspension, Miami traded for Saints LB Stephone Anthony, sending an undisclosed 2018 draft pick to New Orleans. The 2015 first-round draft pick out of Clemson racked up 128 combined tackles, one sack and one interception during his two seasons with the Saints, though most of those stats came in ’15. Anthony has yet to play a down this season—New Orleans drafted LB Alex Anzalone in the third round of this year’s draft, who bumped Anthony down the depth chart.
