The Miami Dolphins have been a player in free agency 2017 not only keeping some of their own but making some editions. However, Monday afternoon they didn’t get a linebacker that they were after, as Zach Brown, late of Buffalo elected to not go to the Fins (where some thought he was a natural fit) and instead, head to D.C.
The Redskins made it official early in the evening:
It's Official: #Redskins sign LB Zach Brown.
Welcome to D.C., @ZachBrown_55!

According to multiple reports, Brown only got a one year deal and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media says with only $500,000 in a signing bonus.
Now it appears that we have to turn their attention to the upcoming draft to fill that need.
