Dolphins Working Out Safeties Including James Ihedigbo, Major Wright & Sergio Brown

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Dolphins are bringing in free agent safeties for workouts on Tuesday including James Ihedigbo, Major Wright and Sergio Brown.

Ihedigbo, 32, originally signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent back in 2007. He spent four years in New York before catching on with the Patriots and later with the Ravens.

Ihedigbo signed a two-year contract with the Lions back in March of 2014 and played out the deal before testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2015, Ihedigbo appeared in 15 games and recorded 63 tackles, one sack, an interception, three forced fumbles, and two pass defenses for the Lions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 64 safety out of 88 qualifying players.

Wright, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Bears back in 2010. He played four years in Chicago before signing on with the Buccaneers in 2014.

Wright was in the final year of his two-year, $3 million contract that included $1.25 million guaranteed and set to  make a base salary of $1.5 million in 2016 when he was released during the final week of the preseason.

In 2015, Wright appeared in nine games and recorded 25 tackles, no interceptions and four pass defenses.

Brown, 28, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame back in 2010. He lasted just over two years in New England before he was waived at the start of the 2012 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.

The Jaguars elected to sign him to a three-year contract in May of last year before releasing him this past April in a move that freed up $2,250,000 in available cap space.

The Falcons signed him to a contract a few months ago before releasing him during the final week of the preseason.

In 2015, Brown appeared in 15 games for the Jaguars and recorded 37 tackles, 1.5 sacks, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
