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.

How the hell do you figure that? Not allowing sacks is a priority for a LT. Intercepting the ball isn't a priority for a corner.

That's right, geniouses.

Albert was pass blocking more than he was run blocking.

Suck my cock, homers.

How many holding calls did Albert have? How many plays did he have that resulted in negative plays? Is he 100% healthy? How is his attitude?

I think there are some questions about him.

Pass protection is a priority for tackles.

There's numerous problems I have with counting sacks as the end all stat for LT's. Granted, they matter, but so do hurries, if the QB holds the ball too long, the talent level of the LG next to you.

Hurries to me is almost equal to a sack. If the defender causes the QB to make a rushed decision that results in an interception, incompletion on 3rd down, it's just as bad as a sack.

I figure that because you're putting one facet of the players responsibility and making it the benchmark. There's a lot more to playing tackle in the NFL than just allowing sacks.

Where does Albert grade out as a LT vs the top 3 in the draft?

Albert was also in the red in run blocking last year. I believe he was -3.4.

Agreed.

Albert also was among the league leaders in fewest hurries allowed!
