Branden Albert trade won’t happen unless he lowers his price

Branden Albert trade won’t happen unless he lowers his price
Posted by Michael David Smith on April 21, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT
Branden Albert AP

The much-discussed potential trade of Branden Albert from the Chiefs to the Dolphins doesn’t appear likely at the price Albert is currently seeking.

Although the Chiefs and Dolphins can probably agree on compensation — the Dolphins sending a second-round pick to Kansas City — the hangup is that Albert wants the kind of money that the Dolphins aren’t willing to spend. Specifically, according to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Albert wants between $8 million and $9 million a year on a long-term deal.

In other words, Albert is looking for the same kind of contract that left tackle Jake Long got from the Rams — the very contract the Dolphins wouldn’t give Long, which is why he left Miami for St. Louis.

If the Dolphins weren’t willing to pay Long that kind of money, it’s hard to see why they’d be willing to give up a second-round draft pick for the privilege of paying Albert that kind of money. So the Dolphins may need to look elsewhere for a left tackle. And Albert may have to settle for playing this season for the Chiefs, making $9.8 million, and hitting free agency next year.

It's not Joeckel and it's not Albert.

Albert turned the team off for a number of reasons 1 being his inability to be flexible for the good of the team, the other is his contract demands and the 3rd is they question how well he's going to hold up on a long term deal due to the various body transformations he has undergone.

If the Chiefs can get the 42, take it and clear 9 million off the books.

I know it's not popular around here, but Dorsey made the right move franchising and trading this guy since they really just don't think he fits.
So Albert's been gone all along. Oh well.

so, the dolphins (who drafted a first round QB last year) are getting a starting left tackle (proven veteran) for a low 2nd

and we're getting a rookie starting tackle for the #1 pick in the draft, while spending a high second round pick (and more) on a QB who was a back up


and this isn't ****ing retarded because why?

This off-season has been absolutely unacceptable. I don't know why I even give a shit about this franchise anymore. It is absolute bullshit that we, as fans, have been subjected to absolute shit since Trent Green's egg got scrambled and this is the kind of offseason we get from the "new boss." Same as the old boss, if you ask me.

We can win a Super Bowl with him at LT.

So it's really a bunch of ****ing bullshit that he's being traded so we can spend 1.1 on his replacement.

We're probably improving that position 15 percent, at best, down the road.

You can win a SB with just about anyone at LT.

But not with a slapdick at QB.
