Dolphins Trade LB Kiko Alonso to Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I’m surprised by the reactions to this trade. He’ll immediately become the second best LB’er on this if Anzalone doesn’t continue to slowly ascend....

So,he missed camp due to injury.
Now he must pass a physical.
I know the team shook up their medical staff, but this still worries me.

What worries me is the bleak history of our medical staff and their ineffectiveness.

Led his team in tackles 2 of last 3 seasons. As long as he’s healthy it’s a win for us.

My thoughts as well.

Saints have a legitimate squad to realistically get to the SB and gave up a career special teamer who has made 20 tackles in 23 games vs a guy (KA) who has assembled 557 tackles in 73 games in addition to sacks and quite a few int's. In addition (IMO) we have the best linebacker coach in the NFL.

Not sure of the long term health of AA or Craig but we need solid depth folks.

Is Alonzo better than Biegel? If the answer is yes, it was totally worth it. I see the 'fit".
