Misi played strong-side linebacker his first two seasons in the league and will not be used as a defensive end, the position he played in college, an NFL source told the newspaper.
Misi, 25, split time with the retired Jason Taylor in 2011. He has 75 tackles and 5.5 sacks in his two NFL seasons. Miami drafted him 40th overall in the 2010 draft.
"Koa has done a nice job. He's played the (strong-side) linebacker position for us. Koa has got a lot of versatility. I really like the way he's developing," general manager Jeff Ireland said earlier this offseason. "It's unfortunate that he got hurt at the end of the season because I saw some growth in him there late. We just got to see where he continues to grow. But he's got to get better."
