After just one season with the Seattle Seahawks, free-agent linebacker Terence Garvin has found a new home.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday that Garvin has agreed to a contract with the Miami Dolphins, although terms were not disclosed.

Garvin started three games for the Seahawks in 2017, sacking Aaron Rodgers in the first game of the season. The majority of his contributions were on special teams, although he did have 198 defensive snaps on the year. Garvin was credited with 25 tackles, a pass defensed, and a forced fumble through 15 games played. He made a big splash in preseason with a pick-6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, and overall was serviceable depth during his time in Seattle.

The other Seahawks LB signed last offseason was Michael Wilhoite, who had more than 100 snaps than Garvin in defense, but he’s not been picked up by any team, and there don’t seem to be any indications that Seattle will bring him back.
