http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/16/duane-brown-deal-announced-reportedly-worth-53-4-million/

The team did not announce any terms of the deal, but John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that it is for six years (http://twitter.com/McClain_on_NFL/statuses/236171853310357504) and $53.4 million. That’s an average of just under $9 million per season, which is a pretty good price for a left tackle turning 27 this month and coming off a season that saw him named a second-team All-Pro. Per McClain, the extension kicks in after this season — Brown will make $2.08 million this year — and guarantees the tackle upward of $22 million.

-----------------------

So, Albert's probably looking at around $8 million per with guarantees around $18-20 million. I don't see how or why that shouldn't get done, assuming Albert has a solid year.

Here's the deal - Brown said all along that he wanted to work something out now. It was in the Texans best interest to sign him now because next year his original contract, along with Schaub's and Barwin's, will expire.

He didn't dick around with Carr. He let him go. And he's also paid plenty of great players... Hali, Charles, DJ, Flowers and he gave a huge contract to a safety in Berry.

Who is to say Bowe isn't being unrealistic. I'm betting he is asking way too much..

Left tackles are expensive, but I'm not sure Albert has shown me he's worth $8M a year. He's solid, but not in the top 5. Show me something by game 8. I'd love to see him step to that next level in red and gold.
Bowe, on the other hand, is probably due about $8.5-9M a year. Again, show me you won't drop passes and will remain a solid citizen with RAC as your coach. The talent is there, just not sure about the professionalism.

wow you are dumb.

Pats always draft safeties pretty high, as high as you can when you are team with a franchise QB with a winning record every season. But seriously, they drafted

Brandon Meriweather in the first round
Patrick Chung with OUR 2nd rounder we traded them for Matt fucking Cassel, which was a high 2nder might I add.

McCourty was a first rounder and Ras I Dowling was the first pick in the 2nd round, so like a high first.

They have more high picks in their secondary than we do lol.

And they have drafted and signed more problem players than probably any other team in the last decade. (Brandon Spikes, Aaron Hernandez, etc)

I was just saying that people have used the reasons that I posted to clown Pioli over the years when the comments are way off base.

Good post and valid point.

But if you are an employee that is Top 10-15 at your job, but have been suspended from work once in those 5 years for something inappropriate, missed work for long stints because you feel you deserve a certain amount of money, needed to be micro-managed to make certain you're giving your all, and have made questionable comments to the media while representing that organization, I would assume that employer would have serious doubts about paying you like you are Top 5 in your position.

Here's the reality. This team has a shit load of individual talent, and has yet to do much of anything with it. Backed into the playoffs in '10 and got their asses thoroughly handed to them. The two biggest things holding this team back up to this point? QB and coaching. The person responsible for our QB and previous coach? Pioli.

Pioli came into an ideal situation. This team was a lump of clay ready to be molded any way he wanted. A roster full of young talent, some nice high draft picks. He chooses the right QB and coach to lead this team, and chances are the past 3 years bring more success than one playoff loss and some of the most embarrassing Chiefs football in history. He failed in that department.

Now we keep hearing all the fans talk about how talented this team is. But with every new season, we face losing another Carr, Bowe, Albert, etc. Maybe we can get a Baldwin to replace Bowe. Maybe we can sign a Routt to replace Carr. But if you honestly believe the front office is going to be able to sustain a revolving door of talent, while continuing to lose ground in draft position, you're crazy. There's a reason so few teams see repeatable Superbowl success. A reason dynasties are rare. It's because the window of keeping the talent together is short. We already spent the last 3 years treading water with Pioli's choice for head coach and QB. You'll have to forgive me if I'd like to see some money spent to keep the talent that maybe keep our window of opportunity together longer.

Fair enough. If that's your issue, then that's your issue. Just don't pretend that he has something to prove.

Also, I don't believe he's ever missed a day of work for wanting more money. He doesn't have a contract. He doesn't work for the Chiefs. We are trying to re-hire him, but we haven't offered him what he wants.

About a year and a half ago, a company tried to hire me away from my employer. I spent a couple of months negotiating before I agreed to jump. Should they have criticized me for missing work during that time? Of course not. I didn't work for them yet any more than Bowe works for the Chiefs today.

If our talent level is so great, why do so many people seem to take issue with the Chiefs fans that want to keep that talent?

Carr was an unrestricted free agent and his lifelong dream was to play for the Cowboys. I don't understand the issue here. Furthermore, Pioli prepared for Carr's departure by drafting Jalil Brown and signed Stanford Routt.

The talent level is as high or higher than it's been since 1989. This team suffered catastrophic season injuries to its best players early last year, yet still won 7 games with guys like Palko & Orton at QB. This year's team has far more talented depth and it'll just keep getting deeper.

Based on his 2009 offseason, I didn't think it possible that Pioli could build a championship roster outside of New England and Bill Belichick but it's hard to argue against that notion in 2012.

True, but most LTs leave something to be desired in the run-blocking, especially in a zone-blocking scheme IMO. They typically don't pull and have runs designed away from them.

However, LTs who are above average in pass blocking are a commodity in this league. You pay Albert IMO, especially when you take into account who he has been blocking for.

There might be one excuse. If one or both of them absolutely refuse to sign any deal because they want to play somewhere else, there's not much you can do about it. Of course, I guess you could argue that that's still Pioli's fault for not making the franchise more attractive. It should absolutely be a top priority though.

- Not every Chief let the side down. The three highest graded Chiefs proved to be Branden Albert (+4.6), Derrick Johnson (+4.5) and Ropati Pitoitua (+3.4).

- This marked the third game out of his last four that Branden Albert had recorded a perfect game in pass protection. Somebody is going to get paid.

Pioli is going to pay him that kind of coin plus his has one of his picks waiting in the wings.

the only way Albert stays is if we get a new GM and a new GM quick but this is clearly Brandon Carr II. The guy has a good season and then is able to test the market because there is only one franchise tag.

Albert is now the top-rated pass blocker on PFF.

Just freaking outstanding.

I'd give Albert close to $50 million.

Eh, not really.

Sam Baker isn't close enough to Albert for it to set a decent bar. Baker's an adequate tackle, but nowhere near premier.

Sam Baker is pretty much the floor and Duane Brown is the ceiling. Albert should aim for somewhere in between.

if ***** dicks around like he did Carr and now Bowe with Albert and doesnt pony this money up then I am done with him as a GM

Dorsey has been GM for a couple of months. During his tenure the Chiefs have yet to play a game or conduct a practice. They haven't even had a draft.

They've made one trade and signed a few free agents.

And you're already done with him as a GM.

The sad thing is that you're not alone in your insanity.

Did you quote the wrong post or are you just confused?

In my haste to be judgmental and critical, I failed to notice that the post I was quoting was from 2012 and was obviously about Pioli, not Dorsey.

Or, somebody hacked my account and made that stupid post. Yeah, that's it, that's what happened.

Why bump last years thread to post that, twitter boy.

It becomes a confusing nightmare.
