The Miami Dolphins are looking to make several moves before the start of the 2019 season.
According to Barry Jackson and Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald: “Safety Reshad Jones and linebacker Kiko Alonso are among those who have been available. A high-ranking league official said Saturday that he doubts Miami would find a trade partner for Alonso or Kenny Stills because teams would wait for them to be cut.”
Additionally: “There are also questions about the future of Raekwon McMillan, whose role will be impacted by [Sam] Eguavoen’s development. While the Dolphins would not cut McMillan, the team likely would listen if there’s an appealing trade offer.”
When it comes to Stills, it remains unclear if the trade rumors have anything to do with him voicing his displeasure with team owner Stephen Ross for holding a fundraiser for President Donald Trump or his criticism of Jay-Z and Roc Nation’s partnership with the NFL. Maybe a combination of both.
Not helping matters was head coach Brian Flores opening Tuesday’s practice by playing 8-straight Jay-Z songs after his criticism.
“It was a challenge to Kenny to perform regardless of whatever is going on outside,” Flores said, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. “I would say, and I said this to him, he hasn’t performed up to that level over the course of training camp, or as I’ve seen. So that was the challenge—to get open, catch the football and make plays for this team, regardless of what’s going on outside of this building.”
The 27-year-old appeared in 15 games last season and racked up 37 receptions for 553 receiving yards and six touchdowns scored.
