Kiko Alonso has already proved to the NFL that he is a solid linebacker and can make some highlight plays on defense, when healthy. Alonso tore his ACL after his breakout year in Buffalo, which happened to be his rookie season. He missed all of the 2014 season before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. Last season with the Eagles, Alonso wasn't playing as great as many expected. Coming back from a knee injury and changing teams was a major setback for him.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
