Saints Trade for Linebacker Kiko Alonso

The Saints made their first move since roster cuts, as they trade camp standout Vince Biegel to the dolphins for Kiko Alonso, who is coming off a career year. The trade is a straightforward LB for LB transaction. This has come of a bit of a shock, but Alonso comes with excitement for most Saints fans.

Kiko Alonso is coming off his best year since his rookie season with Buffalo. He finished 2018 with 125 tackles, 3 TFLs, 3 Ints, and 3 forced fumbles in just 15 games.

This trade provides depth for the Saints. As for character concerns, the Saints have built a strong locker room culture which Alonso should feed off.
