Dolphins Shopping LB Kiko Alonso, S Reshad Jones

In the midst of a rebuild, the Dolphins are shopping some of their older players. Barry Jackson and Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald report that Miami has dangled several of their veterans in trade talks.

However, one of the players who hasn’t been shopped is offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. Earlier today, Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network reported (via Twitter) that the Dolphins were shopping the 25-year-old, but Jackson and Beasley write that the organization has “assured the Tunsil camp that there is no truth to that.”

Jackson and Beasley note that the front office has received calls about Tunsil, but the team hasn’t acted on any of the inquiries. Further, the reporters write that they personally received a call from a credible source who said “Tunsil’s name had come up in trade discussions,” but it was uncertain whether the Dolphins initiated the calls.

It wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense for the Dolphins to move on from Tunsil. The former first-rounder has established himself as an up-and-coming lineman, and he’s under team control for another two seasons. Plus, the team is looking to build their offensive line as they prepare for the future with either Josh Rosen or a 2020 rookie under center. Moving on from one of their assets would contradict that logic.

While Tunsil might not be on the block, the Dolphins have been shopping safety Reshad Jones and linebacker Kiko Alonso. Jackson and Beasley write that rival organizations are expecting Alonso and wideout Kenny Stills to be cut, limiting Miami’s trade flexibility. The Dolphins would also consider offers for linebacker Raekwon McMillan, who could be pushed for playing time by Sam Eguavoen.

The organization kicked off their rebuild this past offseason by moving on from a number of veteran players, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill and linebacker Cameron Wake. The team currently owns 13 draft picks in the 2020 draft.

      Freedom of speech and right to protest; if you don’t believe in those things go to Russia or North Korea or China you pos.

      Everyone touts freedom of speech until someone says something they don’t like…

        Yes, it’s no longer just freedom of speach.

        Nowadays, in today’s politically correct, sensitive society, our right has now turned into the freedom of speach, as long as you don’t offend or hurt someone’s feelings..

        In the pursuit of equality, a balanced society, and acceptance we’ve become a bunch of overly sensitive, ignorant hypocrites..

        And that is all I have to say about

    Stills? This can’t be because of skill set, gotta be the owner / attitudes. Only 27, decent speed, someone will get a good #3 or #4 for cheap.

    I really hope that’s the truth about Tunsil. It would be a move in the opposite direction to trade a young franchise cornerstone.

    Politically, I’m aligned 100% with Stills.

    Football-wise, isn’t the dude hurt all the time???????? Can’t rely on a guy who’s never healthy.

    Looks like the Dolphins are finally going about their rebuild the right way. If they could dump a couple of those veterans for more picks in next year’s draft, that would be awesome.

    Alonso to Jax?
    Telvin Smith,uh…..retired.
    3rd round pick replacement is hurt.
    Off season addition Ryan…..hurt.
    Defense has one hole……linebacker.

      Moore and Tartt actually are looking pretty solid thus far; bowever, they could definitely use some better depth for versatility and in case of an injury..

      Because, by now, all 49ers’ fans are well aware we are assured three things in life: Death, Taxes, and Jimmy Ward will be on the IR to end the season..

      I’d definitely like to have Jones on the 49ers, especially on Dime sets, they could bring Tartt close to the LOS, then have Jones and Moore as theor two deep..

    Gute should be calling MIA right now. Alonso next to Blake Martinez would look real nice.
