$Signed a four-year, $7.73 million contract with the Saints in May of 2015. Traded to the Dolphins in September of 2017. Dolphins declined $9.23 million team option for 2019 in May of 2018.
Demoted to second team
LBMiami Dolphins
August 13, 2018
Anthony was replaced at starting outside linebacker by rookie Jerome Baker at Sunday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Anthony was essentially a non-factor in limited snaps during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers, while the team has elected to give their third-round rookie (Baker) a chance at securing a starting job at outside linebacker. Anthony exhibits a larger frame than Baker, but the latter has shown playmaking ability and speed in coverage situations.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
A first-round draft pick in 2015, Anthony started all 16 games at middle linebacker in his rookie season, leading the team with 112 tackles. As a sophomore, however, he shockingly fell out of favor with the Saints' coaching staff and saw only minimal playing time, even as the team's linebacker corps suffered a rash of injuries. In the end, Anthony logged a mere 16 tackles in 10 games in 2016. With the Saints adding veterans A.J. Klein and Manti Te'o through free agency and drafting linebacker Alex Anzalone in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Anthony will need to show significant improvement to regain a fantasy-relevant role.
The hyper-athletic Anthony was New Orleans' first-round pick in 2015, and he mostly was encouraging, breezing past triple-digit tackles and reminding of his playmaking upside with a fumble return for a touchdown. He'll move from middle linebacker to outside in 2016, which will hopefully allow him to show off his remarkable athleticism with more frequent pursuit opportunities. While the addition of free agent James Laurinaitis might be a concern for the less-established Anthony, it's likely the two will coexist rather than vulturing production from one another.
With the draft pick acquired from Seattle in the Jimmy Graham trade, the Saints selected Anthony in the first round (31st overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. A premier athlete, Anthony totaled 90 tackles, 10.5 tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks in his senior season at Clemson, and could potentially play at either inside linebacker position in the Saints’ 3-4 base defense. Dannell Ellerbe, who was acquired from Miami in the Kenny Stills’ trade, and incumbent starter, David Hawthorne, likely have the early leg up in the competition for starting positions, but based on his productive career in college, Anthony could be an impact player in IDP leagues if he can unseat either player.
