The Dolphins project Kiko Alonso as their starting middle linebacker for the upcoming season. Alonso had four interceptions as a rookie and has entertained the idea of playing tight end, Gustavo Fillol Day of ESPN.com reports.
“We have good tight ends in Miami,” he said, “but if the Dolphins need me for a specific play, I can move on that side of the ball. I’ve already told the coaches that if they want me out there in a goal-line situation, I’m ready to jump into the field. I have some specific plays at hand, but I won’t reveal them.”
