DOLPHINS TRADE EAGLES FOR LB ALONSO AND CB MAXWELL
Also Will Cut CB Brent Grimes This Week
Eagles LB Kiko Alonso is considered a top talent, when healthy
The Miami Dolphins made a trade today with the Philadelphia Eagles for linebacker Kiko Alonso and corner back Byron Maxwell. Both players are considered to have great potential, but also great risk. Alonso is a high energy player who has had big seasons, but struggled with injuries this year. Maxwell was the Eagles prize signing last year, but had a disappointing year and the Eagles turned sour on him and didn't want to carry his large salary. The Dolphins will trade the Eagles undisclosed draft picks.
Dolphins To Cut Brent Grimes
