Report: Two Dolphins Guards Included in Trade to Chiefs

New, comments

Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald is reporting that the Miami Dolphins have included G Ikechuku Ndukwe in the trade to the Kansas City Chiefs for undisclosed compensation.

Adam Caplan of Scout first reported the trade of G/C Andy Alleman to the Chiefs for undisclosed compensation.

Ndukwe was acquired by the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2005.  After stints with the Redskins and the Ravens, he joined the Dolphins in December of 2007 after previously spending time on the practice squad.

Here is a link to his bio on the Dolphins official site.

Here is what Darlington had to say about the players involved:

Both Ndukwe and Alleman played key roles last season in filling holes left by injured linemen at both guard positions. Ndukwe started 15 games for the Dolphins last season after Donald Thomas went down with a foot injury in the first week of the season.

He started 15 games at right guard for the Dolphins last season after an injury to Donald Thomas. 

Armando Salguero of the Herald is picking up on Darlington's report:

The rest of the exchange? Jeff Darlington is reporting that Ikechuku Ndukwe went in the same package to the Chiefs as Alleman. Ndukwe started 15 games at right guard last year but was moved to right tackle this year and was languishing on third team during camp. 

If the report is accurate then the Chiefs will be releasing one more player shortly.  As of this posting, the Chiefs still have 79 players listed on the roster (with Vince Redd being the only subtraction and the trade not yet official).
