Draft Scout Spencer Paysinger News
04/02/15 - LB Spencer Paysinger left the Giants for the Dolphins Thursday (April 2) as an unrestricted free agent. The Dolphins also signed QB Josh Freeman.
"I would like to welcome Spencer and Josh as the newest members of the Miami Dolphins," general manager Dennis Hickey said. "Spencer is an experienced player that has been a strong contributor in his first four seasons in the NFL and Josh is a quarterback who has had success in this league."
Paysinger, 26, is expected to fill a vacated spot on special teams after the Dolphins lost Jason Trusnik to the Carolina Panthers earlier this week.
"I saw that they had a few linebackers that aren't with the team anymore and it just looked like an opportunity," Paysinger said. "For me, it's all about having an opportunity."
Paysinger spent his first four NFL seasons with the New York Giants, playing mainly on special teams. In 2013, he started 10 games and had 74 tackles and a sack. He moved back to a reserve role last season and finished with 15 tackles.
"Every linebacker that plays in the NFL wants to be a starter, but I'm not here trying to undercut anybody or try to throw anybody under the bus," Paysinger said. "I want to come here and take advantage of the opportunity that's been provided to me."
