Bills LB Kiko Alonso burst onto the scene early on in the 2013 season. And his performance earned him recognition Tuesday, as the Pro Football Writers of America Defensive Rookie of the Year.
But the team’s second round draft pick says he’s looking to do more in 2014. Alonso was a guest Tuesday night on the John Murphy Show podcast.
“I think we can get better in every aspect of the game,” Alonso said. “A lot of games came down to the finish, and we just have to finish.”
Kiko became a fan favorite and had plenty of production in his rookie year, finishing 3rd in the league with 159-tackles, and racking up four interceptions. Also notable, the fact that he played every defensive snap for the Bills in his rookie campaign.
He told host John Murphy that playing every snap was not necessarily a goal he set going into his rookie year.
“I think my biggest goal was to do everything I could to help the team win,” he said. “Being on the field every snap was definitely the most I could do to help the team win, because I didn’t come off the field.”
