The Dolphins restocked their depth at inside linebacker on Monday, reaching an agreement on a deal with former Tennessee Titans linebacker David Long and re-signing linebacker Duke Riley, league sources told the Miami Herald.
According to reports, Long’s contract is a two-year deal worth $11 million and Riley’s contract is two years.
Long, who turns 27 in October, recorded a career-high 86 tackles this past season before a hamstring injury in December sidelined him for the final five games. A sixth-round pick of the Titans in the 2019 Draft, Long has started 26 games in his career, with 21 coming in the last two seasons. In 50 games, he has recorded 230 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 14 pass breakups and two forced fumbles.
According to NFL’s Next Gen Stats, Long tackled opposing ball carriers for a loss or no gain on 6.6 percent of his run defense snaps last season, the second-highest run stuff rate for qualifying players.
