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.

Joeckel, Asomoah, Hudson, Allen, Stephenson. Which one of these is going to be the "veteran presence" this young line will need if we get into some shit late in a game or down the stretch of a long grueling season to keep the focus going? Ryan Lilja??

Imagine how boring and uneventful this place would be if the Chiefs did everything we want them to do and won SBs?

What would we bitch about?

I guess chad Pennington should have went number one then?

They don't want to pay him what he wants, they can recoup a pick they spent on their "franchise" QB, get a cheaper option at LT that they obviously believe is a better option.

Therefor, do it.

But it should be met with the expectation that a LT taken with the first overall pick in the entire draft is held to the same as any other positional player. He needs to be expected to be a top 5 player at his position year 1, with the ability to get better.

Will be funny if they trade him to Miami and he signs a deal in Miami worth about 7 per year. Maybe Albert just doesn't want to be here.

Something doesn't add up here.
Jake Long is a brokedick, and Branden Albert is a pretty good, athletic LT that is still improving.

The Dolphins are pretty smart. Tannehill is gonna make a quantum leap this year.

Because we don't have the ammo and Albert isn't worth that much to warrant the 12th pick.

We don't have any leverage in that situation at all.
