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.

Well ****. I saw the talking heads discussing if Albert was worth more than the 54th, but I missed what they said. What is the consensus among the "experts"? Is Albert worth more than that? And could we possibly be getting future picks or are we just going to get bent over and shafted hard?

That plus the Smith trade alone you lead you to question Reid.
They approached him prior to the franchise tag about the possibility of shifting back to guard. They were willing to pay him pretty good coin to be the LG with the plan to have Jeff Allen shift to RT. When it was apparent they weren't close on a long term deal they franchised him to trade him.

The Chiefs, in my estimation, have zero desire to keep Albert here next year.

I'll question Reid when I see the finished product here.

I don't know what the experts are saying. Just what the smart guys on CP that I respect are saying.

The consensus is that a 2nd is probably too little for Albert, but a 1st is too high and you're not going to get the Dolphins to agree to it. Most believe that this trade is a bad idea, but that the Fins 2a would be the least worst realistic situation if we are committed to trading him.

However, the 2b seems most likely.

No matter what pick it is, I'm going to reject it on my alternate reality 1 team. I'm not giving up my left tackle for a second round pick.

He's earned the right because he IS a LT. That's the position he grew up on even prior to high school. He played guard briefly for a few years in college, then went back to LT in the pros. It's HIS position.

That would be like the Dolphins wanting a change at QB and then asking Ryan Tannehill to re-sign with the team, but move to WR. He'd probably tell them, "No, thanks. I'll either play QB or you can find me a different team."

To be fair to Albert, there's not a left tackle in the league that would have a favorable reaction to that.

Ask all 10 of the best left tackles, and you'd probably hear the same thing Albert told the Chiefs: get bent, I'm out of here.

Stop.

Just, stop.

This is a no. It would not be like that.

You're right. I'm supposed to know with absolute certainty that the 2012 Chiefs were going to go 2-14, have the worst QB play in modern football and have a player kill themselves in the parking lot.

There was a bunch of incidents that spiraled at the end of last year that sealed *****'s fate. Prior to that, Clark Hunt was in *****'s corner 100%.

I'm sorry you're just a bitter asshole that needs outside influences to form your own football opinions.

I don't think moving a LT to guard is anything like moving from QB to WR.

I'm strictly telling you the info I'm e-mailed. Assuming this is true and I don't really have a reason not to believe it, do I blame Albert? No. I'd be pissed too.

But I don't blame the Chiefs either. This is a new regime that doesn't have to pay everyone or love everyone from the prior roster. They don't have to keep a player they feel they can upgrade because some feel he's a top 10 LT.

I don't love Albert like a lot on here, but I also think that if the Chiefs were drafting in the middle of the round and traded Albert, the outrage wouldn't be this bad. If Dorsey was a true idiot, he would have just let Albert walk the same day he franchised Bowe and some would have just overlooked it because they got Bowe locked up and they would have viewed it as one or the other. He did the smart thing and will eventually get the 2nd rounder back for him.

I get it. I'm no Joeckel fan either, but I'm willing to see how things turn out before I'm jumping back into the Save Our Chiefs mode.
