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.

You're gonna take a pudgy, unathletic spread left tackle with the top pick in the draft when you already have a solid left tackle?

I wouldn't give Albert a Duane Brown contract, I don't think.

But instead of filling his spot with 1.1, I'd sure as Hell rather play Stephenson at LT and Schwartz at RT.

Which, of course, goes against the win-now mentality that trading for Alex Smith necessitates in the first place.

No wonder they haven't signed Alex Smith to an extension. He might be kindling by week 6. You can talk all you want about how he isn't worth Duane Brown money, or he isn't a top-5 tackle, but the reality is that they're dealing, by far, the best lineman that they have. And the end result is that the unit as a whole is likely going to get weaker, not stronger, regardless of how amazing people think whatever middling tackle they select at 1.1 may be eventually.

Simple.

Alex Smith> Any QB in this draft or FA.

I wouldn't give him a Duane Brown contract either, but if the choices are give him that contract or have to spend the highest pick in franchise history on his replacement, I'd vote for the former.

And by that metric, Albert is better than any LT available in the draft or FA.

I like how Albert's oft injured now. Prior to his back issues last year he'd missed 4 starts in 4 years, including 1 in 2010 and zero in 2011.

So how good in your minds does the LT we take at 1 have to be for this to be justifiable?

You do realize Joeckel played in a pro style offense before last year right?

And you do realize that taking a better LT who will be healthy for a cheaper price so that we can lock up future players is logical, right?

No. Nevermind. You don't.

If you think Albert is about the 12ish best LT in the game, obviously the new LT has to be better. Add in what we are using to take him, I'd say he has to be fairly close to top 5-7 ish pretty quick.

Do you have any other argument that can't also be applied to the QB position?

Because drafting a QB would also be cheaper than having Alex Smith on a 2 year $15 million deal and it would help us lock up future players.

Reid wants to win now and no QB in this draft is ready to start. Don't hate the messenger..
