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.

That's a brilliant plan.

Branden Albert and Eric Winston as the two bookends. One is a top 10 LT and the other is a top 5 RT.

Would Geno have been one of the 2 or 3 best QB's in the league by 2015? Jordan one of the 2 or 3 best OLB's? Milliner one of the 2 or 3 best CB's? At some point we should recognize what there is to work with in this draft.

Wanna bet that Joeckel is better than Albert last year?

Bet he plays more games and is better statistically.

Albert was ranked as the 17th best LT in the NFL on PFF last year.

Pretty sure Joeckel can do better than 17th.

He won't be in the top 10 in PBE, nor will he allow only 1 sack.

That right there is the two most important things for a LT.

I'll take that bet. Except no PFF shit. Straight up sacks allowed.

I don't give enough of a shit to bet on that. He's still going to be a small marginal upgrade. What improvements this offense undergoes will stem entirely from the upgrade from Cassel to Alex (blech) and Reid and Pederson.

We can and should be doing so much more with that pick.

That's right but Luke is gonna be playing in a O that doesn't run the ball 70% of the time like Albert in 2012.

If Albert gets traded to the Dolphins, they won't run the ball that much either. And even if you extrapolate his numbers over 600+ pass attempts, he would have still gave up less than 2 sacks last year.
