Spencer Paysinger is one of the more insightful Dolphins follows on Twitter.

On Tuesday, he gave a little insight into his 2016 plans.

Paysinger told his 27,200 Twitter followers that he has re-signed with the Dolphins, and then fittingly used a clip from the Dolphins-centric “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” to celebrate.

The terms of the new contract were not immediately known. Paysinger was an unrestricted free agent.

Paysinger, 27, spent 2015 with the Dolphins after beginning his career with the New York Giants.

He appeared in 14 games for Miami last year, recording 25 tackles on defense. But Paysinger was most valuable for his role on special teams, where he would often be on the field for an additional 20 plays per game.

His 15 special-teams tackles were tied for 15th in all of football a year ago.

Paysinger also brings veteran depth to a linebacker group that includes Koa Misi, Jelani Jenkins and newcomer Kiko Alonso.
