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.
