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:

Dolphins Sign Kenneth Farrow, Three Others

The Dolphins have signed AAF standout Kenneth Farrow, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Miami, which is in full rebuild mode, has raided the now-defunct AAF, adding linebackers Tyrone Holmes and Jayrone Elliott and offensive lineman Michael Dunn in recent days.

Farrow signed with the Chargers as a UDFA out of Houston in 2016 and saw action in 13 games (2 starts) that year. He totaled 262 yards from scrimmage, most of which came after a late-season injury to Melvin Gordon created an opportunity for playing time. Farrow’s 2017 season was wiped out by a shoulder injury, and Los Angeles waived him last April. He bounced on and off the Patriots’ taxi squad in 2018, but he did not see game action.

As a member of the AAF’s San Antonio Commanders, though, Farrow compiled 372 rushing yards (tied for second in the league) and four TDs. He added 12 catches for 95 yards, and he may get an extended look on the talent-needy Dolphins.

As Jackson writes, the Dolphins have also added former AAF players Joey Mbu (DT), Reece Horn (WR), and Jaryd Jones-Smith (OT).

Titans Cut Ropati Pitoitua, 11 Others

The Titans have made 12 roster moves today, moving their roster to 77 men, the club announced. Tennessee has until 3pm CT Tuesday to get to 75 players.

The Titans have made the following transactions:

Cut:

Waived/Injured:

Pitoitua, 31, seemed liked one of the likeliest cuts in the entire NFL. Pitoitua only played 31 defensive snaps last season, but was scheduled to count more than $3.8MM on the Titans’ salary cap. By releasing him, Tennessee will save $3.078MM.

Gallik, meanwhile, will revert to the Titans’ injured reserve list if he clears waivers.

Minor NFL Transactions: 6/3/16

Today’s minor moves:

  • The Titans announced that they have officially placed tackle Byron Bell on injured reserve. Bell, 27, suffered a dislocated ankle in May which ended his season before it could even begin. The veteran restored his value by moving across the offensive line across a full 16-game season. In a related move, the Titans have added undrafted wide receiver Reece Horn, a University of Indianapolis product who managed nearly 1,400 yards receiving in 2015. Horn participated in the Colts’ rookie minicamp last month.
  • The Raiders announced (Twitter link) that they’ve waived wide receiver Andre Debose. Debose was recently waived and then placed on injured reserve by Oakland, so the two sides presumably reached an injury settlement, enabling Debose to seek employment elsewhere.
