Report: Dolphins Trade LB Kiko Alonso to Saints for Vince Biegel

Miami will receive linebacker Vince Biegel in return.

The Miami Dolphins have traded linebacker Kiko Alonso to the New Orleans Saints, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday.

According to Rapoport, the Dolphins will receive linebacker Vince Biegel from the Saints in exchange for Alonso.

The move comes just one day after the Dolphins dealt left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills to the Texans for first-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021, a second-round pick in 2021, offensive tackle Julie'n Davenport and cornerback Johnson Bademosi.

Drafted by the Bills in the second round of the 2013 draft, Alonso missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL before being traded to the Eagles for LeSean McCoy in 2015.
