NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Saints have traded linebacker Stephone Anthony to the Miami Dolphins for a reported 2018 5th round draft pick. The Saints' Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis made the announcement Tuesday evening. 

Anthony’s only game action in 2017 came in the Saints’ first preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. He’s been nursing a high ankle sprain that’s kept him off the field in the regular season.

The move comes less than two weeks after he made the 53-man roster and head coach Sean Payton said that the Saints wanted to continue to develop Anthony.

Anthony, the third-year pro and 2015 1st-round pick by the Saints out of Clemson, appeared in 26 games with 19 starts. He recorded 169 tackles, one sack, one interception, seven passes defended, a fumble recovery for a touchdown, a returned blocked PAT and three tackles on special teams.
