  • Walt Aikens: Deal falls through

    Aikens deal with the Titans fell through and he remains a free agent, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    It seemed as if Aikens' signing with the Titans was imminent, but the team decided to head in a different direction after his physical. The veteran safety will now look for a different team to call home after spending the past six seasons with the Dolphins.

  • Titans' Walt Aikens: Finds new home

    Aikens (ankle) inked a contract with the Titans on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Aikens left the final game of the 2019 regular season with the Dolphins due to an ankle injury, but as evidenced by this news, he appears ready to compete for a roster spot. In 15 games with Miami last season, the 29-year-old supplied 21 tackles (15 solo) and one pass breakup across 15 games.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Gets hurt Sunday

    Aikens is questionable to return to Sunday's tilt against the Patriots due to an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    It's not clear how Aikens sustained the injury, but he was forced to leave Sunday's contest in the fourth quarter. If he's unable to retake the field, Aikens will finish the 2019 season with 22 tackles (15 solo) and one defended pass across 15 contests.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Reason for scratch revealed

    Coach Brian Flores said Aikens didn't travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Giants due to a violation of team rules, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

    It's unsettled whether this issue will keep Aikens out of Week 16's game against the Bengals as well. Aikens mainly works on special teams, so his absence didn't shake up the defensive dynamic.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Unavailable Week 15

    Aikens didn't travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Giants, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Aikens has played in all 13 games this season but won't be available for Sunday's game in New York. The 28-year-old has played only 13 offensive snaps since the Week 5 bye, so his absence should only impact Miami's special teams.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Practices in full Thursday

    Aikens (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Aikens appears to have shed the hip issue that limited him in Wednesday's practice. He's on track for his usual role as a special-teams contributor versus the Colts on Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Dealing with hip injury

    Aikens is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets with a hip injury.

    Aikens played only nine snaps on special teams in last week's loss to the Steelers but apparently sustained the hip injury during the contest. The 28-year-old was a limited practice participant all week and may end up being a game-time decision.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Ready for Week 17

    Aikens (hand) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Aikens sustained the hand injury Week 16 against the Jaguars but was able to practice fully Friday to help avoid the questionable tag. The 27-year-old has played a handful of defensive snaps in each of the last three games and should see a similar workload in the season finale.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Exits game with hand injury

    Aikens is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a hand injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Aikens left the field during the second half. As long as the fifth-year cornerback remains sidelined, expect Maurice Smith to benefit from an uptick in snaps.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Remaining in Miami

    Aikens will sign a two-year extension with the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Aikens provides the Dolphins with some veteran depth in the secondary as he has spent his entire four-year career in Miami. In 16 games last season, Aikens recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one forced fumble.

  • Dolphins' Walt Aikens: Heading to free agency

    Aikens finished the 2017 season with nine tackles and one forced fumble.

    The 2017 season marked the final one on his contract, and with a modest 16 tackles, over the past two seasons it would seem unlikely that the Dolphins will bring him back. Aikens will look to sign with a team that needs depth at the safety position once free agency starts on March 14.
