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.

Hmm. Do we get a pick this year from tampering?


Holy shit. What if this was all a trick by KC to steal a pick via tampering from Miami? /Conspiracy Keanu

I think that's the aim. They seem to want to free cap space and build the team with their players. I'll be completely convinced if they take a QB with the 2nd.

I still really like the Andy Reid and John Dorsey hires. I just don't agree with the way they started out here and it's totally possible the moves they are making are the best ones for the team...it just sucks that it seems like this is nothing more than us watching the same shitty movie again because of the teams history.

I hope it all works out because it's been a few years since Chiefs football was fun to watch and I'd like to enjoy the games again.

My hope is that Alex Smith shows that he can handle throwing the ball a lot more and that he will be able to maintain his ability to protect the ball and field position while taking advantage of the weapons he will have at his disposal.

I'd love to be wrong about these moves...if I/we are wrong about these things, we have a good chance to be the next 49ers type turnaround team.

Should be interesting to see how Alex Smith handles throwing the ball 600 times (Foles and Vick combined for 616 pass attempts) when he hasn't ever thrown more than 445 times in his career.

Can he keep his interceptions low while throwing so much more?
Will he be able to get the ball out faster to avoid sacks?
Will he be able to stay healthy?

These are the questions that could swing this trade drastically in either direction.

If he is able to do well in those things, the trade could end up being a steal and the guy can win us some really big games...if he isn't, we will all know what Cbase Daniels does with his chance.

No, they seem to want to build a team for the NEXT QB they think will appear by magic...

I think Albert's been gone for a while. He's 1)coming off a back injury-and when these guys start having back problems, they don't usually get better, 2) wants top 3 LT money-and while he's been GOOD, I don't think he's really THAT good, and 3) publicly refused to move to RT to help the team.

So let's get this straight-your new GM and head coach are supposed to overpay a 320 lb. man coming off a half season due to back problems as if he is one of-if-not-the best left tackle in the game though he is probably like the 10th best tackle in the game. To top it off, he's going to publicly state that he'll ONLY play LEFT tackle, and wouldn't switch to help the team.

Yes, you could win a SB with Albert. NO, you're probably not going to win a SB by overpaying players who are legitimate injury concerns and that publicly challenge the team leadership by refusing to move anywhere else if it helps the team.

I think this anger at the forthcoming trade is based on the desire for Geno Smith to be a franchise QB. If he's NOT-and it appears that Reid and Dorsey don't think he IS-then this draft is the kind of draft where there's just not a sure-fire #1 worthy pick. Especially not a QB. In which case, if they think the best player is a Tackle, well, I wish it was a QB too-and I bet nobody wishes it more than Reid and Dorsey. But it ain't. Wishing it to be isn't going to help. Sucks to have that #1 when it's not worth much, but that appears to be the situation. Getting mad at Dorsey and Reid right now doesn't make much sense.

Now, if Geno goes somewhere and lights it up, you can be irritated-but getting a #2 rather than overpaying for a guy that's just not worth what he's asking is not a reason to flip out.

I'm not an Alex Smith fan either, but I am in the wait and see camp. Reid has certainly done a lot with less. You can't look at the Albert trade as part of the Smith deal. They're only connected in the way that they were both things Dorsey/Reid felt they had to do. Smith was the best vet QB available in a year in which there are no franchise QB's in the draft. Albert wants too much. What are they supposed to do?

2/3rds. It's worth being accurate, but it doesn't really impact the argument much.

That's as misleading as saying he only played half the season.
