Maxwell and Alonso headed to Miami pending physicals, contract work

As long as physicals check out and cornerback Byron Maxwell’s contract can be reworked, the Eagles will be sending Maxwell and linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Dolphins in a trade.

Reports of the deal surfaced earlier on Monday and now there are multiple reports that the deal has been finalized pending physicals for both players. Maxwell’s agent Alvin Keels also told Josina Anderson of ESPN that his client is included in the deal.

In addition to the physicals, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are also working to alter Maxwell’s contract. Maxwell signed a six-year, $63 million contract as a free agent last year and didn’t come all that close to living up to expectations as a starting corner for the Eagles. He’s due to make $8.5 million with a $9.7 million cap hit this year under the terms of that deal.

The Eagles re-signed quarterback Sam Bradford, but this deal and their reported willingness to trade DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews is a pretty clear sign that team wants to walk back much of what they feel went wrong after giving former coach Chip Kelly personnel control after the 2014 season.

The Dolphins are expected to send draft pick compensation back to Philadelphia, although the nature of the pick or picks is uncertain at this time.

    Wow. Please tell me the Eagles are getting like a 2nd and a 4th, and (I know I’m being greedy) an okay backup OL?

  2. valentino8100 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:46 PM

    Wow. Like this for Miami but the bleeding of talent still continues in Philly.

  3. jw004wv says: Mar 7, 2016 3:46 PM

    @duffman19101 dolphins don’t even have okay STARTING linemen….

  4. richiethegreek says: Mar 7, 2016 3:46 PM

    Love that were shedding Maxwell’s contract but I still hesitate to give up Kiko. Low risk, high reward player right now.

  5. mjd08501 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:47 PM

    Dolphins really working hard to keep their spot in the basement of the AFC East

  6. billswillnevermove says: Mar 7, 2016 3:47 PM

    Neither one will help Miami.

  7. whiteybulgersson says: Mar 7, 2016 3:47 PM

    Miami must have the cap tied up to five guys.

  8. zack2482 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:47 PM

    What a mess and a disaster. Lol. Love it. I’m sure Maxwell is happy to leave that crap hole of an organization.

  9. thegreatestofalltimes says: Mar 7, 2016 3:47 PM

    I’m OK with losing Byron as the Eagles could probably get similar production for slightly cheaper, but Kiko was a bargain, even with the injuries. I would’ve liked to have seen him in Philly for another year, but if/when he gets hurt again, it becomes moot I guess.

    Please get at least a 2nd…please get at least a 2nd…please get at least a 2nd…

  10. therealjr says: Mar 7, 2016 3:48 PM

    The Dolphins are the ones that should be getting a decent draft pick in exchange for taking that terrible Maxwell contract off the Eagles books. Reworked or not.

  11. richiethegreek says: Mar 7, 2016 3:48 PM

    The Dolphins are idiots for giving anything for Maxwell and taking on even a cent of that contract, but they might end up with a stud who is cheap in Alonso.

  12. tompapp1 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:49 PM

    It looks like the ultimatum from the owner to get to the playoffs in three years or less translates into trading picks for starters.

  13. bakeberryjam says: Mar 7, 2016 3:49 PM

    If it’s more/higher than a single 4th, I dunno… Alonso’s medical history isn’t exactly rosey, and Maxwell just came off a bad year.

    Tannenbaum better be using some leverage here…

  14. VenerableAxiom says: Mar 7, 2016 3:50 PM

    Miko for Kiko, and a big CB? OK. A couple of steps towards addressing two areas of need.

  15. jjb0811 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:50 PM

    Bottom dwellers doing trades. Makes for an entertaining way to get through a Monday!

  16. matgreene19 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:51 PM

    valentino what talent do you speak of? Maxwell couldn’t stick glue last year and alonso looked like a lost child out there.

    They need more picks in this draft, especially after Kelly traded away the oh-so-important 2nd round pick. Hopefully they get this back, AT LEAST.

  17. dietrich43 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:51 PM

    They’re not sending them to the Niners?

  18. flash1287 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:52 PM

    Eagles also get the rights to Jonathan Martin…

  20. tjacks7 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:52 PM

    Miami is destined for salary cap trouble. All the contract restructuring and now taking on more bloated contracts. It’ll be interesting to see maxwell’s reworked deal but still the Eagles were bailed out of that one. I think Alonso can be a good player when healthy but then again he’s in the last year of his contract so if he plays well… You have to pay him too. Miami is all in and not even close to being good enough to win it all.

  21. thekingdp says: Mar 7, 2016 3:53 PM

    If the Eagles get anything more than a 7th round draft pick, the Dolphins just got robbed.

    Addition by subtraction.

  22. cobrala2 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:53 PM

    Can’t get rid of those two tulips fast enough.

    Howie for President!

  23. VenerableAxiom says: Mar 7, 2016 3:53 PM

    Hopefully it allows for a trade down in the draft, and Miami can maintain their number of picks.

  24. naes says: Mar 7, 2016 3:54 PM

    What Chip Kelly did to the Eagles feels like someone went to a buddy’s house and ruined their online Madden franchise.

    As a Giants fan, I love it. Unfortunately our moron GM is still on the job.

  25. prostock75 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:54 PM

    Valentino, lol, bleeding of talent? This is a great deal for the birds. I can’t believe the Fish would make this deal.

  26. jonathankrobinson424 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:55 PM

    ………..as long as we get our 2nd rounder back, I think it’s a good move for the Eagles. Basically we have re-set the Eagles roster back the 2014 roster……..

  27. coltzfan166 says: Mar 7, 2016 3:57 PM

    Doesn’t matter. They’ll go 8-8

    “Maxwell and Alonso headed to Miami pending physicals, contract work”

    FOR??? venerable axiom called it, this looks like Miko for Kiko, getting Maxwell and cutting Grimes is essentially a wash other than the risk of taking on more guaranteed money with Maxwell

  29. 1986wake says: Mar 7, 2016 3:58 PM

    As a dolphins fan I don’t know what to think about this. Have to sleep in this a couple days. I like the aggressiveness to go get talent. But both these guys come with question marks.

  30. Jame Wilson says: Mar 7, 2016 3:59 PM

    This trade for the Dolphins would be perfect. The Eagles got Byron to replace Grimes since he might be on his way out, and I heard Kiko Alonso might be in the deal to and Dolphins lack LBs. They still need to address the O-Line, but I’ll take this.

  31. profootballgossipping says: Mar 7, 2016 3:59 PM

    this is BS…. kiko will be a star and howie will bungle the draft picks.

  32. topwonk says: Mar 7, 2016 4:00 PM

    Possible the Eagles are getting this year’s #2 from Miami? The 42nd pick in the draft? For Maxwell and Alonso? Hard to believe, but these are two of the most overrated busts to play in Philly since Nnamdi Asomugha.

  33. iammrbinky says: Mar 7, 2016 4:12 PM

    DROY in 2013, bad knee injury keeps him out 2014 and part of 2015. If he’s healthy, Alsonso just solved the Dolphins issues they have had for years at MLB. As for Maxwell, he’s essentially a 1 year prove it deal for less money than Grimes was going to be paid. It’s a very low risk high reward for the Dolphins. Will depend on what the pick compensation is buit I suspect 5-7 which is a bargain.

    Quite obviously many people commenting have no clue how a salary cap and NFL contract works and it shows. Always look at guaranteed money and signing bonus for an accurate picture of what is in store for both sides. Non guaranteed money is nothing but a number.

  34. andyreidsgut says: Mar 7, 2016 4:15 PM

    you guys calling for a 2nd rounder are nuts…

    I’ll gladly take a 4th…or, really anything for these two.

    maxwell is overpaid and laughs all day while he gets burnt while Kiko was a huge injury risk coming in and guess what, he got injured again!!

    Alonso may make no money but maxwell was due almost $10M next year – thank your lucky stars it’s not coming from the eagles!

  35. captainstabbins says: Mar 7, 2016 4:19 PM

    Kiko will never be a star. He has a bad knee. I will be surprised that he passes the physical. All these people saying he has potential beside for 1 interception against the Falcons I didn’t see anything other than him getting steamrolled over and over again.

    The Fins only have to pay the guaranteed base salary.
    8.5 year one 10m year 2 with only 3M guaranteed they would eat if they wanted an out.

    If they were to re work the contract a Min. could be 7.5M over 5 years.

  38. ohand16 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:22 PM

    Yes! Now Kiko gets to stick it to Buffalo twice per year.

  39. jn213 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:23 PM

    Enjoy Eagle fans. If Kelly was making the deal we would have thrown in a 3rd and a 5th to get a 6th rounder.
    Nice to have Howie back and the picks that come with him.

  40. birdbrainsnj says: Mar 7, 2016 4:33 PM

    Anyone hyped about getting kiko look at the tape. He showed zero hustle and was dominated by lineman. Maxwell was average at best. Eagles getting anything in return for these two is a huge win. You can sign two average corners for what they paid maxwell and kiko wouldn’t even get in the field here.

  41. fvfcbs says: Mar 7, 2016 4:34 PM

    I’d bet Philly’s new D coordinator saw the video of Maxwell and Alonso intentionally avoiding contact throughout last year. Both these guys did not want to tackle head on. Maxwell was an embarrassed on the MNF game. Alonso later in the season

  42. somethinghappeninghere says: Mar 7, 2016 4:36 PM

    Maxwell to Fins bad if they don’t rework that God-awful contract of his (and if they keep Miko’s husband too)…Alonso is a good deal though, even if he didn’t work out well in Philly…I can’t think of a player more willing to stick it to the stinkin’ Bills than Kiko…now all they have to do is get Super Mario (and let Olivier “Mr. Roughing-the-Passer” Vernon walk). That way they don’t have to restructure Cam Wake…and maybe, just maybe, the Fins will finally beat the Bills this year.

  43. ketch20too says: Mar 7, 2016 4:38 PM

    Maxwell isn’t as good as Earl Thomas made him look.

  44. jaredc360 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:41 PM

    I’m so thrilled to move on from these two, no compensation would be fine with me.

  45. buffaloblue85 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:42 PM

    If Miami is smart enough to move Kiko to WLB, he will be a very good player for him. That was the plan up here in Buffalo before he got hurt. He needs space to make plays…

  47. whlskey says: Mar 7, 2016 4:45 PM

    The fact that Kiko was thrown in late in this trade makes me believe the Eagles are getting the Dolphins 2nd round pick.. Maxwell was mostly about the money & initially reported to be the only player involved in a potential trade, but the late addition of Kiko at a bargain price for a LB with his potential makes no sense otherwise.

  48. billsfan1 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:45 PM

    You can have Kiko. He started out his rookie year like gangbusters, hit the wall about 12 games in and well, hasnt been much better than Dion Jordan since then.

  49. jhonnyklassik says: Mar 7, 2016 4:46 PM

    They will most likely swap 1st rd picks and get anywhere from a 4th and 7th pick back

    Lol no way miami gives them a 2nd rd pick lmao blahaha.

  53. VenerableAxiom says: Mar 7, 2016 4:50 PM

    I hope they traded 1st round picks, that would be a steal. If not, they may be more inclined to trade down with some major needs partially covered.

  54. phinfan84 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:54 PM

    Lets trade for a linebacker who can’t stay on the field and has had 1 good season and a cornerback who is worse than Brent Grimes and more expensive. Mike Tannenbaum is the absolute worst. We have become Browns south.

  55. fifel1144 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:55 PM

    Looks like the Fins are try to put a D together that can do what Denver did to Brady. It only took them 15 years, Brady will retire in a couple years or so. Too little too late guys.

  56. autoriot says: Mar 7, 2016 4:56 PM

    This is the best Monday news I have received in a long time. Getting Maxwell off the books will be huge, especially given his mediocre performance. If the rumors about Murray moving on as well are true, then awesome, we are going to have more money and less drama on our team. I am all for these moves.

  57. rhf123 says: Mar 7, 2016 4:58 PM

    The eagles will get like a 4th for them, as usual

  58. andyreidsgut says: Mar 7, 2016 5:07 PM

    @iammrbinky

    Maxwell is due even more money in two years than next. And that’s guaranteed money too.

    All in all, about $19M for him for those two years.

    …and he is no Grimes..

    Good luck.

    The Dolphins need Maxwell now that Grimes is gone. A restructured Contract is going to be about half what Grimes was going to get. Even as you Sour Grapes Philly Fans claims he is just above average, he is better than what we had and we have an extra $6M+ to throw at a FA Guard. Kiko is just a bonus… great upside with a $900K Salary. I get the whining Philly fans, but you Bills Fans should be ashamed of yourselves. Kiko was a Stud and then injured in a system that didn’t fit him. If the Phins give away anything 5th or 6th.. We get the last laugh on this deal. 2 Starters (not Stars, but better than typical 5th rounders tend to be).

    Kiko may be better for MIA, but was lost here. He didn’t want to hit. Another year away from the knee injury will probably do him some good. Maxwell is just ok and doesn’t like to tackle. 5 yard gains will become 10 yards, because he will constantly try to strip the ball without wrapping up.

  64. huggybear2014 says: Mar 7, 2016 5:39 PM

    LOL a 2nd Rounder. According to “real” sources it is more like a 5th or 6th and Stills is not invloved.. All you sour grapes Philly Fans. You lose no matter what! It cost a fortune to get these guys signed last year. Kiko will cost $991K… that is literally less than some UDFA’s will get. He has proven himself when not injured and is in a Contract Year. He will work hard to impress if he wants to get a Payday for 2017. It is sad that you can’t even let your Trolling take a back seat to sound logic. Maxwell is a gamble, but is a quality Starter and we are getting for less than the silly amount you paid. It pains me, but the Dolphins were 26th ranked Defense and getting different players for less money than the junk we had is an improvement. Kiko is a Freebie!

    lax coach you apparently didn’t watch a single Eagle last year (don’t blame you)…But Maxwell cannot stick anyone in man to man coverage without help (aka hes a zone player, AT BEST) and kiko alonso got eaten ALIVE because he is too small! Plain and simple, the guy DID not wanna get down and dirty aka he cannot tackle. So enjoy your “free bee,” and you better hope Sue gets his stuff together because if he gets passed that D-line, well, you can guess the rest. ENJOY OUR TRASH.

    Actually, the acquired to starters for desperate need positions at little cost, cap or otherwise. They have both played better prior to being coached by the DC with a worse defense than the Fins. Plus they got one with a rookie contract, and the other is being restructured. Regardless of what they gave up, they wouldn’t have got that in the draft.

  80. sumkat says: Mar 7, 2016 7:30 PM

  81. fanofpft says: Mar 7, 2016 7:34 PM

    If Mia. picked up the dead money Eagles were originally on the hook for in order for Kiko to be part of it. Don’t expect much for trade picks.

    Something on the lines of swapping picks. With the possibility of a mid to late rounder.

    They might swap first rounders possibly 3rd also but Eagles have 2 of those to Mia. higher single 3rd rounder.

  83. kgunforhire says: Mar 7, 2016 8:12 PM

    What tape is Miami looking at makes them want to do this for Maxwell? PFF ranked him around 90th amongst all CBs. That’s barely practice roster worthy. Miami sheds a scrub in Grimes and replaced him with someone just as effective all while bailing out Philly from that sh*t contract. Kiko is a solid LB, but just hasn’t been able to stay healthy. This deal’s value could hinder on the return they get from Kiko.

  84. spfripp says: Mar 7, 2016 8:33 PM

    Maxwell’s contract and the length of Kiko’s contract brings down their trade value. Philly probably get at most a 4th rd pick for ether one of these guys, at most a 3rd rd combined even at that it probably would require Philly to send a pick to Miami in one of the later rounds. To put it perspective, last year Miami traded Mike Wallace to the Vikings for just a 5th rd pick. At the time you would think Wallace would draw a higher draft pick but the 10 mil he was due dropped his value.

    “Maxwell and Alonso headed to Miami pending physicals, contract work”

    FOR??? venerable axiom called it, this looks like Miko for Kiko, getting Maxwell and cutting Grimes is essentially a wash other than the risk of taking on more guaranteed money with Maxwell

    You are correct sir (never thought I’d give that to you chess).

    Thank you. We appreciate whomever you might provide… how about that Mario fellow?

    It’s amazing that no one knows what the compensation , but you’re fighting over who won the trade. Just the clearing of the cap space makes this worth for the Eagles. I hope Miami gets players that are productive for them. With them being in the AFC I don’t care how well they play

    As a phin fan, it’s just to hard to get excited about anything they do these days. But with Gase….it’s a start. Where’s Damon Huard, anyways?

    We get overpriced inured and underachieving players for draft picks. We get their big salaries so we cut Brent Grimes, the only all pro corner back on the Dolphin roster. We are so screwed up! We will end up with one good safety and no support.

    This roster is simple to improve. Cut the underachievers, the sick, the lame and the crazy! Cut those linemen that couldn’t crack the lineup! If you can’t make it on our roster you are not NFL material.

    Picks are always more valuable than underperforming, damaged players.

    Eagles for the win.

    Unless those picks don’t pan out, which is about 50/50.

    You just made my argument for me. I’ll take 50/50 over being 100% sure that Maxwell can’t play and Alonso is damaged goods.

    Just saw a leak about the picks

    Swapping first rounders with Mia to get Eagles 4th round pick.
