The Miami Dolphins are signing free-agent linebacker Shaquem Griffin to a one-year contract, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Griffin spent the last three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, who selected him in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The 26-year-old, whose left hand was amputated when he was four years old, became an inspirational story nationwide during the draft process.

Griffin appeared in 46 games for the Seahawks, mostly acting as a core special teams player.

He should battle for a similar role in Miami during training camp, with linebacker Sam Eguavoen his most likely competition.

Griffin's twin brother, Shaquill, plays cornerback for the Jacksonville Jaguars and is entering his fifth season.
