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.

Everyone is just ****ing butt-hurt about this team not drafting a QB. If we had taken Tyler Bray in the third round, you'd all be shitting yourselves in glee. "Woot! We got our QBOTF! He has all of da tools!" You'd literally be happier if we got the exact same draft, but took the players in a different order.

Fine!



Here's how it went down:

1.1 - Tyler Bray
2.33 - Eric Fisher
3.65 - Nico Johnson
3.96 - Travis Kelce
4.98 - Traded for Alex Smith
5.134 - Knile Davis
6.170 - Eric Kush
6.204 - Sanders Commings
7.207 - Mike Catapano


Braden Wilson UFA

Happy?

Good.

He is not getting traded. Both sides want to get a long term deal done. Albert is asking for roughly 9 mil a year. Hes looking for tge same contract as Duane Brown. However it is expected both sides will get a long term deal worked out before Mandatory OTAs start in the first week of June.

Yes Albert will be the LT and we drafted a RT for the next 5 plus years. Deal with it. We got bookends for 5+ years.

Good link. The writer did make a number of assumptions I am not sure were in evidence.

The Chiefs haven't reworked contracts much for a long time, they have plenty of room to maneuver.

Albert can take his leverage and stick it up his ass

Albert got humbled for sure with this trade situation. He didn't have a market and won't have a big one next year being 30.

I'd be shocked if kc got bent over by Albert. Albert has no leverage. KC can keep him another year and let him ago although I'd be mad to let him go for nothing.
