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.

Sounds about right.

Yay.

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.

When you draft an LT at 1 overall you get fired. That is not a position that wins you Super Bowls.

Probably smart to get rid of Berry too. Can't trust his knee.

Dorsey might be able to get a 2nd for him.

I've been over this since about a week after the trade.

Nothing quite gets me worked up like the Chiefs and Royals do. Venting here is cathartic.

I just don't see the benefit in trading him before the draft. If the Chiefs know they are drafting LT/Fisher at 1.1, then do it. That is one less starting quality LT available for a team searching for a LT. I understand there is a possibility you won't be able to move Albert, but I think that is a very small possibility.

Is this your new schtick? Making fun of people who don't like the moves Chiefs are making?

I'm also just shocked that Albert performed well in a contract year.
