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.

And Flacco is damn near a full year younger (Jan. '85), and one year absolutely makes a difference.

Branden Albert doesn't suck. At the worst, he's adequate.

We're spending the #1 overall pick to replace a player who wasn't part of the problem in 2012.

All to save cap money and ensure that we don't get burned by these fictional and mythical "back problems."

Jesus ****. Adrian Peterson had a torn ACL. Does that mean he has chronic knee problems?

Drew Brees threw 27 TDs his 4th year in the league.

Had Alex Smith done anything CLOSE to that, ever, I'd be much more inclined to give him some wiggle room.

If Flacco's ceiling is a shit ton of playoff wins, I'd take it. And, yes, I don't believe he's an ascending player at this point.
Well, I disagree about Flacco (and Smith as well).

Most people considered Flacco nothing more than a "Game Manager" until Cam Cameron was fired and replaced by Jim Caldwell. After that change, their offense exploded and Flacco went wild, eventually winning the Super Bowl.

I think he'll continue to ascend in 2013 with Caldwell, which once again proves that coaching and scheme can and do make a difference.

Not to be a stickler but ACL is the knee, not foot/calf

For Alex Smith, coaching and scheme turned him into a game manager checkdown artist.

That is his ceiling to this point in his career. Thinking he'll go beyond that, at this age, is a fool's errand. Again, 75 years.

You left out the part where the Chiefs are able to acquire the QBotF that they identify. Those plenty of wins will make that difficult.

Try 27. Prime at 29, with consistent levels of production thereafter.
