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.

This is the number one pick we're talking about. If he's not one of the 2 or 3 best tackles in the league by 2015 it's a waste of a pick. And even if he is, if he's traded away in 2018 it's a waste of a pick.

It's denial. People want to maintain hope that we aren't just replaying the same movie again a d genuinely want to believe in this regime.

The compensation for Alex was atrocious, but people let it "grow on them" and are now ok with it. They know Albert is a good, solid left tackle...but now that they see the writing on the wall that he is gone, they want to tear him down so it seems it's not as big of a loss.

Winning now would be not starting a rookie LT and likely a first time RT.

Makes sense.

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.
Keeping Albert doesn't make any sense if they have no intentions of giving him a long term deal. If they are certain he won't be around for long, they might as well go through the pains of re-shuffling the line now (when they have a lot of options on the table) and work on forming a long-term starting line up now instead of delaying the inevitable.

With the #1 overall pick, the Kansas City Chiefs decide to tread water at a non-impact position and save a few million on the salary cap.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock...

The more you think about it, the dumber it gets.

We traded for a guy who takes more sacks than anyone.

And we got rid of our best offensive lineman.

Whee!

Joeckel needs to be atleast as good as Albert right away for us to be successful next year.

That's literally all this comes down to. This is Clark saving a few bucks by not paying a veteran. That's all it is no matter how much rationalizing people want to do. We have the number one pick in the draft and instead of using it to acquire a playmaker at literally any impact position you can think of, we use it as a lever against a veteran lineman's contract.

Same shit, different decade.

ESPECIALLY when they are moving on from their own top ten left tackle to draft his replacement.

He NEEDS to be ELITE.

Reid inherited that. What you think this line was experienced and really talented in January? Really?

If Dorsey's really concerned about the cap, there are other ways to manage it than to waste the #1 overall as a bargaining chip with a veteran who wants his money.

So we're back to Clark is cheap? Damit Carl
