The New Orleans Saints have moved on from their first round pick in 2015, linebacker Stephone Anthony, shipping him to Miami in exchange for a 2018 draft pick.

For the Dolphins, the move clearly comes as cause-and-effect following Lawrence Timmons' indefinite suspension. 

Anthony earned PFWA All-Rookie Team honors in 2015, but only played 10 games last season before landing on the IR to end his 2016 campaign. 

In a juicy twist of fate, wrote NFL.com, Anthony and the Dolphins are slated to battle the Saints in London come Week 4.

"The former Clemson star was no longer a fit for the Saints, who overhauled their linebacking unit this offseason. In Miami, though, he'll certainly earn playing time following the indefinite suspension of linebacker Lawrence Timmons.

"Anthony gives the Dolphins a speedy linebacker with the physical skills to cover pass-catchers in space. That said, his star faded quickly in New Orleans. A fresh start should help."
