Reports Monday have the Dolphins and Eagles working on a trade that would send cornerback Byron Maxwell to Miami a year after they signed him to a six-year, $63 million deal.
Maxwell may not be the only 2015 acquisition moving on after a year with the Eagles.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that linebacker Kiko Alonso would also be involved in a deal that would bring draft pick compensation back to Philadelphia. Alonso was acquired in a trade with the Bills for running back LeSean McCoy last year.
Alonso played 11 games for the Eagles, starting once and missing time with a knee injury. Alonso, who missed the 2014 season with a torn ACL, had 43 tackles and an interception for Philly and is signed for just over $941,000 in the final year of his rookie deal.
The Dolphins recently reworked Koa Misi’s contract and have Jelani Jenkins under contract at linebacker with Kelvin Sheppard set to become an unrestricted free agent.
