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 not (I really like Lotulelei), but you're asking Poe to move to DE in that scenerio. Lotulelei is not an end in the 3-4, he is an interior presence. He's a 0-tech in the 3-4, or a 2-tech or 3-tech in the 4-3. He simply can't cover enough ground to be a 5-tech.

Remember when he went on the radio and seemed pissed about how some talk about moving him to guard or the right side and he was pissed?

That had to be the time TBG was talking about when he was asked to move to LG.

Dorsey and Reid wanted their own Mike Iupati.

It's a shame Albert didn't accept. A line of

Joeckel
Albert
Hudson
Asamoah
Allen/Stephenson

Would have been formidable.

Like most everybody else, they weren't sold on Geno. They'd love Jordan or Ansah but both are unproven, a terrible ****ing idea for the 1.1. And even a draft day trade-master like Reid cannot trade out of the #1 overall in a year like this.

Joeckel becomes the most logical selection. Which they think they can get a best case scenario out of Albert, who can play two other positions on the OL. They'll even offer him a fat contract to stay and be a LG/RT. If Albert doesn't like it, they can tag him and get something for him.

Albert, unsurprisingly, didn't like it.
So you're saying they're big pussies? Got it.

No, it's not a shame.

The Chiefs are stupid for this.

Spending the 1.1 to upgrade LG is even dumber than what we're doing now.

I hope this blows up in their faces, because they need to learn not to do stupid shit evidently.

Why would you hope this blows up in their face? Would you really rather be "right" then actually root for a winning team?

Are you that attached to Albert?

What about if the compensation they get for him turns out to be a great player. Do they get no credit for that?

The agendas here are ****ing jawdropping.

It would be overpaying significantly, but that line would own faces for quite some time.

Amazing that people might not accept the fact that Albert wants big money and they don't feel he's worth it.

You've made some valid points here, but I do think it's bullshit they want Albert to change positions.

This is no better than forcing a change in defenses by drafting Tyson Jackson.

Albert deserves big money.

WTF else do you pay a guy who has allowed six sacks, total, in the last two seasons?

But they do feel another tackle is worth the top overall pick in the draft.

It all depends on what they get out of trading Albert.

This reeks of trading Tony Gonzalez for Javier Arenas...hopefully, we get something better this time.

No pro bowls + injuries basically every year= not worth elite money.
