Albert may not be done here !

Branden Albert, Chiefs hoping to work out contract0By Chris Wesseling
Around the League Writer

Published: Feb. 22, 2014 at 12:08 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Despite rampant speculation to the contrary, the Kansas City Chiefs have not decided to let left tackle Branden Albert walk in free agency.

General manager John Dorsey told NFL Media's Steve Wyche on Friday that the Chiefs are still hoping to work out a deal for Albert before free agency begins in March.


Dorsey declined to say if the franchise tag would be an option should the sides fail to reach an accord. Because he was tagged last year, Albert would merit a 120 percent raise on his $9.828 million contract from 2013.

More proof that Albert remains in the team's plans? Dorsey told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday that 2013 No. 1 overall draft pick Eric Fisher is still penciled in as a right tackle, not a left tackle.

Albert is one of this year's top 10 free agents. If he's kept off the market, tackle-needy teams such as the Arizona Cardinals will be disappointed.

As for quarterback Alex Smith, Dorsey confirmed to Wyche that an extension is on the agenda, but there is no rush to complete a deal.

Neither Albert nor Smith can be blamed for the Chiefs' late-season collapse. This offense scored 35 points in five of their last seven games, including four games with more than 40 points.

They had plenty. They knew they could **** our GM and they knew we had no QB...

haven't read back thru this whole thread again, so not sure if this has been mentioned.

another possibility is Dorsey is gauging the contract level for BA, and if it's reasonable/feasible, they sign him and try to trade Stephenson instead. not at all saying I want to do this, cause I don't, just sayin it's not impractical if they can get him for less than the huge $$ some might expect he's looking for.

more likely I expect they are posturing for any number of reasons, such as...

don't want Stephenson to suddenly hold out thinking he deserves starter salary

maybe something miraculous materializes in the franchise tag and trade arena

sending a msg to either fisher, or Stephenson, or both, that they are not automatically awarded a starting job just yet, keep them motivated

just typical FA season misinformation, maybe even just for shits n giggles

Jason Peters agrees to $51.3M deal

Jason Peters, who has returned to Pro Bowl form after two devastating Achilles injuries, agreed to a five-year, $51.3 million contract with the Eagles on Wednesday.

What do you guys think Albert will ask for based on this?

Exactly! There wasn't that much of a "drop" in production at LT when Albert was out.

Stephenson will do fine but now we'll have zero depth. If one of our tackles goes down what then ?
