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 funny people act like football players should just accept anything the coach tells them. If your boss wanted to move you from the most important position at in your department to the 3rd most important, you'd tell him to piss off. But because Albert is a football player, he can't do that.

Same question.
How is it a demotion when he's being paid among the top five left tackles?

Really? You think that people that are paid millions per year tell their CEO to **** off if they've been reassigned?

How old are you and what's your experience in the corporate world?

Clay, did you say this is the Brandon Carr situation all over again? It's not. Carr didn't want to be here, Albert wants paid. We're at least getting good value if we get the higher 2nd rounder. 2nd round high pick for a LT that's 29 coming off back spasms last year is pretty good. I want Albert back. I'm a fan of his but if this regime isn't keen on giving him big money with the way they feel his body is, then I will support them. I will support this regime until they prove me wrong.

Under the tag yes, but I believe he's pointing to the possibility they want to move him to RT and as a RT he would make less if he were to sign an extension.

First off, Albert can play out the tag and sign elsewhere next year. And quite frankly, there's no one in the league that's going to pay him nearly $10 million per to play right tackle.

I'll be shocked if he even gets $9 million, whether its the Dolphins or another team.

If you tell your boss to piss off, there's a good chance you'll be looking for another job.

Because going from left tackle to left tackle is a demotion?

Here's the definition for demote incase you are still confused...

de·mote (d-mt)
tr.v. de·mot·ed, de·mot·ing, de·motes
To reduce in grade, rank, or status.

You failed to answer the question.

Unsurprising.

What does money have to do with it? So just because someone is paid millions of dollars means they can't have the same rights as others? If someone isn't comfortable with the position their company is putting them in, it doesn't matter whether they make $7.25 an hour or $9 million a year.
