Dolphins Cut Kiko Alonso

The Dolphins cut Kiko Alonso en route to reaching the 53-man max. Both moves were rumored this week, but the Fins were waiting to see if they could arrange a trade for the linebackers before letting them go.

Alonso requested a trade during training camp when he realized that he would be squeezed out of the Dolphins’ plans in one fashion or another. New coach Brian Flores is overseeing a defensive overhaul and he didn’t have much use for the veteran, despite his three years of starting experience in Miami. Originally drafted by the Bills in the second-round back in 2013, Alonso won’t play out the two years left on his four-year, $28.9MM deal.

Here are the other moves made by Miami to make their roster kosher by Week 1:

      nope all kinds of screwed up . you know I learned 25 yrs ago to double and triple check your word before submitting it especially if you have a bunch of people reading it and especially if you doing a news article. I guess no a days people just go copy n paste crazy n think they don’t need to check their work

    The LB and DB groups are completely inaccurate. Looks like you copied the wrong names from the Dolphins’ roster breakdown — those names are all *on* the roster, not being cut. (Alonso and McMillan both made the roster, for example, as well as Minkah Fitzpatrick, as noted elsewhere in this comment section.)
