Kiko Alonso has already been on three NFL teams in his brief career, but it may be a while before he goes to a fourth.

Alonso, a linebacker who was drafted by the Bills, traded to the Eagles and then traded again to the Dolphins, is now working on a long-term deal with Miami, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

Alonso is set to become a restricted free agent tomorrow, which would mean the Dolphins could match any offer for him and would be entitled to draft pick compensation if he were signed away. But the Dolphins are high enough on him that that they want to keep him in place.

The 26-year-old Alonso is the No. 50 player on our Free Agent Hot 100.

  1. During his time with the Eagles, when he wasn’t injured he was getting exposed on the field. Not sure how he played for Miami last year, but judging by their track record, this seems like a very dolphins move.

    Like the move to get him? Where they picked up two players who started and played very well when properly coached, and still got the predicted top draft pick in Tunsil. I suppose, assuming again you’re talking about being a playoff team as a very Dolphins move.

    Too bad the eagles suck at 7-9. If I were you, I would worry about their moves rather than the 10-6 Miami Dolphins.

  3. Barsfordsays;

    115 tackles, 2ints, Pro Bowl in his first year in a new scheme, only 25.

    Yeah, terrible idea to lock this guy up.

  4. I loved Kiko his rookie year with the Bills. When healthy , the guy can play. However, he is one more knee injury away from calling it a career. I wish him the best – except when he plays the Bills

    Very Dolphin thing to do. Sign a bum with injury problems. 5-11 is coming up in a couple months. Might as well call that “Dolphin Day”

    Sorry, but they ain’t the browns. 10-6, playoffs last year… and that’s just the beginning.

  6. lol I know a Cleveland fan isn’t talking smack to ANY fan base!

    Your franchise is a national punch line.

    They nick named your stadium the factory of sadness.

  7. Great move. He played very well for under $900K last year. He deserves the Contract. You know the Dolphins have turned the corner when they are signing THEIR OWN GUYS and just filling holes. I hope they get a decent ILB like Timmons (but nothing crazy $ as he is 30+), a Safety and a Guard. I think it is funny that Eagles and Brown fans are Trolling… the ultimate irony.

  8. The Eagles and Browns are the new gangs that can’t shoot straight. They need to spend time worrying about there own team. Miami is on the rise. Bill
