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.

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.
You have an greatly inflated take on top 5 picks and their first year success.

So you shouldn't expect the first overall pick in teh entire draft, to be a cornerstone player of your franchise and a top player at his position?

Can't really blame him.

He's been part of an organization that has won 25 games in his 5 years here, and he's protected a "Who's Who" of shitty QB's. And they just traded for another one.

We're giving up the 1.1 for a move that could possibly be a downgrade.

On the offensive. ****ing. line. Who gives a shit?

I'm ready to ****ing bolt this goddamn team after draft day.

You shouldn't expect him to be a top 5 player in his first season, which is what you were calling for.

It's what has to happen in order for this deal to be considered even a mild success.

It's just like the Tyson Jackson pick. The move isn't going to cause many problems if it doesn't work out, but it's also extremely unlikely that it will actually benefit this team.

This is where I'm at, exactly.

Quite frankly, I don't give a flying **** about Brendan Albert. The ****er has had five years to separate himself and all he's proven is that he's an 11-15 NFL left tackle that wants to be paid like he's Top Three. He's not.

He'll be 29 years old mid-season and as TBG said, he's has had many body transformations. **** him.

While I'm not thrilled with a left tackle first overall, he'll be a minimum of seven years younger and at least $4 million less per year. I'll be shocked if he's not as effective on the field. And if he's not, Dorsey and Reid won't hear the end of it.

Welcome to the NFL, 2013 style. Youth and small contracts win.

Uh, I don't think he will be blocking those guys, save Irvin. I'd be more worried about Aldon Smith.
