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.

If Alex Smith isn't one of the top 16 QBs next year, and Eric Fisher is worse than top 10, Reid and Dorsey are gonna look dumb as ****.

Alex Smith = Matt Cassel

Eric Fisher = Tyson Jackson

Get ready for this truth to be repeated ad nauseam on this board for four years if Albert is dumped.

It's coming.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the "reality is" Texas A&M LT Luke Joeckel will go first overall in the draft.
La Canfora adds that the Chiefs are trying to unload LT Branden Albert, and Kansas City is "planning" to draft Joeckel first overall if they do so. Central Michigan LT Eric Fisher "will" go in the top five, and Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson is "rising." Aside from Joeckel and Fisher, other options for the Chiefs at No. 1 overall are Utah DT Star Lotulelei and Oregon DE/OLB Dion Jordan.

Unbelievable. Why are we talking about that shit with teams? That's a piece of leverage we hold.

I can just see ol' honest John on the phone with Jeff Ireland going, "Now, Jeff, you're a buddy of mine. We went to college together, so I just want you to know that this OT we're tradin' ya... he wants somewhere around 8-9 million per year, so if yer not comfortable paying that, I don't think you should make the deal."

"Okay, John. We can do that, but I'd like to only pay a 3rd rounder."

"Oof. That's a tough bargain, but... eh, I like ya. You're an honest man. It's a deal."

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.
