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 Albert is say the 10th best LT, whoever we pick to replace him should be better. So expecting said player to be atleast a top 10 player if not better seems right to me.

You think just like Clark Hunt. Let's create a hole and fill it with our #1 pick. It's a money saver baby.

Him too. Jesus.

I don't know that Saffold is even a top 20 LT.

And in that division it sure as hell matters.

whoever we pick with the pick we get for him? or whoever we pick at #1 overall? Because there is a chasm of difference in value between #1 and #52.

This rookie LT doesn't have to be top 5 at his position in his first year. Just don't be ****ing horrible and be a liability.

Dorsey is worse to listen to than Pioli. If you expect anything from him, you'll be severely disappointed.
