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.

Unless Albert has a major injury concern, moving him to draft Joeckel doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
Of course the goal is to win a championship. However, every team has a price they are willing to go on any player. Albert is not getting Duane Brown money from the Chiefs. That's well over their ceiling price.

I think the Chiefs could win one with him sure, but I don't think they should pay him what he wants.

So is the other thread for real. The Dolphins have a deal with Albert?

I don't understand What the big deal is with signing Albert to a Duane brown deal.

Brown got 22 million guaranteed in his deal.

Albert is on the franchise tag that is just shy of 10 million and it's all guaranteed.

Just with this years deal, they are almost half way there on the guaranteed money.

I don't even care about Albert anymore.

I figured he would be traded as soon as he was tagged anyways. I was the guy who was like "well, that probably means they didn't want to lose him and get nothing in return."

If we can squeeze the #38 out of a guy we had no intentions of resigning...good for us

Because I don't believe for a second the Chiefs have any intention of Albert being on this roster for 2013 now.

My only hope is that we turn the Albert pick into something worth losing a solid left tackle for.

I don't know that. I really don't trust Rappaport though. If another guy comes out with it then I suppose there's some real validity.

You're gonna give a often injured LT who is not elite and just had back problems an elite contract like Duane Brown?

Idk how people can justify that at all.

Just finish this shit so we can move on.


Albert never impressed me, nor did he disappoint me (very often).


He is but a fart in the wind.

You're gonna trade for an often injured QB who is not elite and has concussions problems for two 2nd round picks?

Idk how people can justify that at all.

I can see why everyone enjoyed your ban. You've never been above the deep end on solid ground have you? Can't even say you've gone off.

Trading Albert makes no sense if they're really in "win now" mode. They're going to be starting a new pair of tackles, and I don't care if he's going 1 or not, whoever it is, Joeckel or Fisher, is a project heading into 2013. Hell, the entire line is projects now. No wonder they haven't signed Alex Smith to an extension. He might be kindling by week 6. You can talk all you want about how he isn't worth Duane Brown money, or he isn't a top-5 tackle, but the reality is that they're dealing, by far, the best lineman that they have. And the end result is that the unit as a whole is likely going to get weaker, not stronger, regardless of how amazing people think whatever middling tackle they select at 1.1 may be eventually.
