He's receiving minimum base salaries, but the Fins have been impressed with "IAF"'s ability to set the edge as a strong-side, outside linebacker. The 58th overall pick in the 2007 draft, Alama-Francis was a bust for three years as a defensive end in Detroit, but is expected to be a second-team linebacker in Miami. He's competing with projected starter Koa Misi for snaps

I was impressed with him on Saturday. Looks to be like another Matt Roth...should be a good rotation between him and Misi.
