According to TSN and several other Canadian media outlets, the Dolphins are signing linebacker Deon Lacy to a futures contract, taking effect as soon as Miami’s season ends.
Lacy, a 6-2, 230 pound linebacker, went undrafted out of West Alabama in 2013 and failed to make the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent.
He then joined the Edmonton Eskimos and played every game the past three years, producing 144 defensive tackles, 68 special teams tackles, 7 sacks, 3 interceptions, 4 forced fumbles and 1 touchdown. He had 87 tackles, three interceptions and a sack in 18 games this past season.
He auditioned for five NFL teams, including the Patriots, in the past month.
The Dolphins, in their ongoing search to find a CFL import who could make anything close to the impact that Cam Wake has had, signed Cleyon Laing out of the CFL last spring, but he failed to make the active roster and was cut from Miami’s practice squad on Oct. 31 and then returned to the CFL.
