Saints Release LB Stephone Anthony


Tom Pelissero reports that the Saints have released LB Stephone Anthony on Wednesday. 

Anthony, 26, is a former first-round pick out of Clemson by the Saints in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Dolphins acquired him from the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2017.

The Dolphins declined to pick up Anthony’s fifth-year option last year and he played out the final year of his four-year, $7.731 million rookie contract.

He recently had brief stints with the Falcons and Jets before re-signing with the Saints last month. 

In 2018, Anthony appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded four tackles.
