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.

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.
Cut off your nose to spite your face.

This is no better than forcing a change in defenses by drafting Tyson Jackson.
To be fair we were actually forced to take Jackson due to forcing the defensive change, at least in Pioli's mind

And on the same token we are being forced to move Albert due to some mythically strict BPA in the draft that is gonna get us Joeckel or Fisher.

I don't see much difference.

Taking Jackson at 3 > trading Albert for peanuts and replacing him with another linemen with the top pick in the whole draft.

He can have a problem with it, but he should keep it to himself and use it to motive himself to win the job he wants instead of acting like he's entitled to it.

Yeah, it seems like they may be setting an example with Albert.

Jake Long is a borderline brokedick...so it's hilarious anyone thinks Albert should accept close to what he got.

Albert averaged 64 snaps a game from 2008-2011. Nearly 1000 per season.

He's not injury prone.

If their livelihood is on the line they need to go with the sure thing at LT, not some pussyface rookie.

If the Chiefs never traded for Alex Smith and said, "We ****ing love Geno Smith" the way the Panthers did with Cam Newton, I'll betcha Geno Smith after the fact would be talked about as a top 3 prospect in this draft in the same way.

Absolutely wrong. Wow. He solidified himself as a top 3 prospect with his Pro Day.

Some revisionist history up in this piece.

Why do you keep saying he's injured every year, making it a bad thing, yet you like the Alex Smith trade, a guy who actually is injury prone?

And that's basically when everybody knew Carolina was going to take him.

Pretty late in the draft season, wouldn't you say?

Yeah. Top 3 prospect. Right.
