Report: Dolphins make Reshad Jones, Kiko Alonso available for trade
The Miami Dolphins have made safety Reshad Jones and linebacker Kiko Alonso available for trade, according to Barry Jackson and Adam H. Beasley of The Miami Herald.
However, it does not seem likely that the Dolphins will be able to find a trade partner for either player because teams will probably just wait for them to be cut.
Jones’ status for Week 1 is up in the air due to a foot injury. He also underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder earlier this offseason, but seems to be fully recovered from that procedure.
The 31-year-old is coming off of a 2018 campaign in which he played 14 games and registered 72 tackles, three interceptions, nine passes defended and a defensive touchdown.
Jones, who played his collegiate football at the University of Georgia, was originally selected by Miami in the fifth round (163rd pick overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft.
He has gone on to have a very productive career in South Beach overall, making a couple of Pro Bowls and doing so as recently as 2017 after totaling 122 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a couple of picks, three fumble recoveries and a pair of defensive scores.
Meanwhile, Alonso has been dealing with an undisclosed injury. He is getting set to enter his third season with the Dolphins and appeared in all 15 contests in 2018, tallying 125 tackles, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
The 29-year-old attended the University of Oregon and was originally selected by the Buffalo Bills in the second round (46th pick overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.
He spent his first two seasons with the Bills before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for one year. The Eagles then dealt Alonso to Miami in March 2016.
