Albert may not be done here !

Branden Albert, Chiefs hoping to work out contract0By Chris Wesseling
Around the League Writer

Published: Feb. 22, 2014 at 12:08 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Despite rampant speculation to the contrary, the Kansas City Chiefs have not decided to let left tackle Branden Albert walk in free agency.

General manager John Dorsey told NFL Media's Steve Wyche on Friday that the Chiefs are still hoping to work out a deal for Albert before free agency begins in March.


Dorsey declined to say if the franchise tag would be an option should the sides fail to reach an accord. Because he was tagged last year, Albert would merit a 120 percent raise on his $9.828 million contract from 2013.

More proof that Albert remains in the team's plans? Dorsey told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday that 2013 No. 1 overall draft pick Eric Fisher is still penciled in as a right tackle, not a left tackle.

Albert is one of this year's top 10 free agents. If he's kept off the market, tackle-needy teams such as the Arizona Cardinals will be disappointed.

As for quarterback Alex Smith, Dorsey confirmed to Wyche that an extension is on the agenda, but there is no rush to complete a deal.

Neither Albert nor Smith can be blamed for the Chiefs' late-season collapse. This offense scored 35 points in five of their last seven games, including four games with more than 40 points.

You're just being contrarian. You asked me if I thought Albert was worth "solidly good" left tackle money. I said yes. But do I want the Chiefs to pay solidly good left tackle money? No.

Just because I think the right price for a beat up Dodge Pinto is $500, doesn't mean I want to pay $500 for it. Why do you think it's a contradiction to agree that Albert is worth $8-11M but not want any part of actually paying that?

False dichotomy.

One can acknowledge that Rolexes are worth $xK and still forgo one to buy new car.

I get that. I feel the same way. Especially when you consider that Albert has missed games the past 2 seasons and when he's out, there is not a drastic drop off in production by his replacement - especially this past season. I appreciate his time in KC but the economics of the situation dictate that he'll be elsewhere next season.

They're just trying to drive up his value by making him seem somewhat indispensable... he's gone, he's going to cost too much... they cant improve the team enough to compete for the SB when a LT is taking up 8-10% of the cap.

All he did here until the last 2 years was shut his mouth and play football as best he could, I will NEVER forget that, honestly, dudes been an excellent TEAM player, then lately he's been more vocal as he grew into his role... he will be a GREAT addition somewhere.

But we simply cant afford to pay him what other, more desperate teams will... good luck Branden, you're time here is appreciated.

Not a chance.

Branden Albert is GONE.

The only way I could see him staying is if he would agree to 7-8 million per year on a 3-4 year deal and I'd bet he can get more elsewhere.
