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.

I'll also say that I hardly think there's a consensus in the Dolphins' building that going after Branden Albert is the way to go.

Has it been brought up that Albert may just be asking too much $$ from the Chiefs so that they won't/can't sign him and to force a trade? If he signs for much less than expected to play in Miami that will be the only thing I can think of.

And the fact that Albert Breer knows this probably means it's bullshit and they are trying to get Chiefs to settle for the higher 2nd round pick.

So let's get this straight-your new GM and head coach are supposed to overpay a 320 lb. man coming off a half season due to back problems as if he is one of-if-not-the best left tackle in the game though he is probably like the 10th best tackle in the game. To top it off, he's going to publicly state that he'll ONLY play LEFT tackle, and wouldn't switch to help the team.

Yes, you could win a SB with Albert. NO, you're probably not going to win a SB by overpaying players who are legitimate injury concerns and that publicly challenge the team leadership by refusing to move anywhere else if it helps the team.

I think this anger at the forthcoming trade is based on the desire for Geno Smith to be a franchise QB. If he's NOT-and it appears that Reid and Dorsey don't think he IS-then this draft is the kind of draft where there's just not a sure-fire #1 worthy pick. Especially not a QB. In which case, if they think the best player is a Tackle, well, I wish it was a QB too-and I bet nobody wishes it more than Reid and Dorsey. But it ain't. Wishing it to be isn't going to help. Sucks to have that #1 when it's not worth much, but that appears to be the situation. Getting mad at Dorsey and Reid right now doesn't make much sense.

Now, if Geno goes somewhere and lights it up, you can be irritated-but getting a #2 rather than overpaying for a guy that's just not worth what he's asking is not a reason to flip out.

I'm not an Alex Smith fan either, but I am in the wait and see camp. Reid has certainly done a lot with less. You can't look at the Albert trade as part of the Smith deal. They're only connected in the way that they were both things Dorsey/Reid felt they had to do. Smith was the best vet QB available in a year in which there are no franchise QB's in the draft. Albert wants too much. What are they supposed to do?
Winner. Tried writing a similar post earlier but got caught up.

According to PFF, Matt Cassel took 593 snaps last year. Brady Quinn took another 492. That's a total of 1085 snaps for the season. 2/3rds of that is 723.33. Branden Albert took 722.

That's an excellent breakdown. People get too hung up on games played when its the snaps that matter.

Well according to football outsiders he played 67% of snaps. Still more than 2/3s .

Has it been brought up that he's now a LT, wants to continue playing a position he's good at, and we're ready to trade him for that alone?...

If your boss wanted you to take a demotion even though you had performed very well at your current position, would you be happy to take it?

Once again, would you take a demotion to help your company?
