The Miami Dolphins signed former Seattle Seahawks linebacker Shaquem Griffin to a contract on Friday.

The Dolphins did not divulge the terms of the deal, but multiple media outlets reported it was a one-year contract.

The Dolphins also signed cornerback Cre'Von LeBlanc and waived defensive end Nick Coe and long snapper Rex Sunahara.

Griffin, who turned 26 on Tuesday, registered nine tackles, three quarterback hits and one sack in 14 games off the bench for Seattle in 2020.

A fifth-round pick in 2018, Griffin recorded 25 tackles, six quarterback hits and one sack in 46 games (one start) for Seattle.

Griffin had his left hand amputated at age 4 because of amniotic band syndrome. His twin brother, Shaquill, is a Pro Bowl cornerback for the Seahawks.

LeBlanc, 26, had 22 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in nine games (one start) with the Philadelphia Eagles last season.

He has 118 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and two sacks in 52 career games with the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Eagles.
