If he passes the physical it's a definite win for us!

As excited as I am to get Kiko Alonso, I'm that saddened to let a class act and unrealized yet talent like Biegel get out the door...

My only real concern here is that he has a reputation for dirty hits, which could be disastrous for us. All it takes is one personal foul penalty to really help an opposing offense on a drive.

Or one nasty hit to have Matt Ryan carried off the field.

And I'm saying nasty, not dirty.

I had the same initial reaction but only evidence I've seen is the Flacco hit. Someone wrote that was Alonzo's only PF that season.

I still don't quite understand why the Dolphins would do this. I understand why the Saints would, but the Dolphins side makes no sense to me.

Starting over boss.

Being bad for a year or two might actually be better than being mediocre for a decade.
