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.

We really won't give Branden some Duane Brown money? Why the **** wouldn't we? Well I guess we get a guy that we can hope will be as good, and then throw him away when he's "too expensive". SMFH

Moving Hali does nothing for the $9 million in dead money he's got with his contract, even though it would free up $6.5 million, and keeping Albert would be another $9 million hit that can be gotten completely rid of in a trade.

If the NfL commisioned some company to make draft day cologne for all 32 teams, KC's fragrance would be somewhere between "wet fart" and "soiled Depends".

Because he's not Duane Brown.

I am thinking injury concerns and lack of what they perceive as good options at 1.1 are leading to this. Outside of LT there might be no one they feel is worth that pick so to draft one a keep Albert would be foolish. Their other issue is that there is no one worth trading up for so they are stuck where they are since no one will give up a ton for a player that might be good but is anything but elite, unlike last year's draft.

We don't really know what Albert is in a traditional pass first offense. Obviously, the Chiefs don't think much of it.

And the other year his stats were inflated he was throwing to Moss and Wes Welker.

Claynus continues to play the PFF/Stats/other teams fans card.

I don't know that an offense that is pass first is traditional, but I've listed some of the rumored concerns the Chiefs have with him.

Even I'll say that he's not worth Duane Brown money.

Yeah, instead of him giving up 1 sack in 500+ attempts, he'll give up 1.3 in 600+ attempts.

Yeah, and we ran the ball out of those.

We were obviously a run first, second and third team with our QB play. We've had a complete philosophical change. They obviously don't see Albert to fit in that role.

As such, it is better we take the route we are with him than let him walk next year.

Agreed, but if the goal is to win a championship he is good enough to do that with.

The CBA was redone to give vets more money and rookies less...and the cap is gonna go way up over the next 5-10 years because of the new tv deals.

Unless Albert has a major injury concern, moving him to draft Joeckel doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
