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.

**** Albert. I don't really care about him one way or another. The implications of trading him piss me off though.

No, it's replacing him with the #1 overall pick.

5.5 sacks allowed per year. 1 more than Joe Thomas.


But hey... when you can get rid of a player like that and then draft his replacement first overall, that's a move you just have to make.

He have up two 2nd round picks for Alex Smith. What's so hard to believe?

Might as well.

****, should probably trade Tamba. Dorsey/Reid could probably get a 4th for him and a 4th for Flowers as well.

You don't think he's valuable? Some teams are willing to spend a #1 pick for a good left tackle.

We're literally pissing away the #1 pick.

This is just indefensible.

Am I over-stating Albert's value?


Albert was a 1st round pick AND he is proven solid. Getting the 54 th for him would be horrible.

So we use the 15th pick to get a LT that will net us the 42nd pick, maybe when joeckel pans out we can trade him for the 27th pick and get a LT.

Soooo essentially it's 1.1, what amounts to basically another first rounder, and Albert for Smith, Joeckel/Fisher, and a lower 2nd rounder...

I almost went he Hali route - but then I thought about it and decided they might just do that to unload his contract. So I went with Houston instead - which to me, is a more valid comparison because Hali is past his prime, where Houston is just entering his (like Albert.)

Eh, we're giving him away at a discount.

The team trading for him has to pay us AND pay him.
