The Saints decided against trying to keep Knight after last season, saying they wanted more speed at safety. In Miami, Knight would compete for a starting job with incumbent Arturo Freeman .
Miami coach Dave Wannstedt said Knight could learn the Dolphins' scheme quickly.
"He's one of the smartest players that we've had through here in free agency," Wannstedt said. "The learning part and him being ready to play would not be an issue.
"We'd like to have him, but we're not pressed. I think he would make our team better."
Knight's agent didn't return a phone call seeking comment.
