In 2012, Ellerbe played in 13 games with seven starts and had 92 tackles, 4½ sacks and two passes defensed. In four playoff games, Ellerbe had 32 tackles, two passes defensed and an interception in the AFC title game.
After signing Ellerbe, the Dolphins released veteran ILB Karlos Dansby, who had been with the team since 2010 and was due a base salary of $6.05 million in 2013. Ellerbe joins a linebacking corps that includes Kevin Burnett and Koa Misi.
The Dolphins opened free agency by signing WR Mike Wallace. Miami also re-signed S Chris Clemons on Tuesday. Clemons started all 16 games last season and had 98 tackles and two interceptions.
