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.

Dorsey would be a fool not to be in conversation with Albert's agent about his contract expectations, but he isn't coming back to Kansas City (nor should he).

Go out and nab a guy like Mike Mitchell to play FS.
Take a long look at Sidney Rice on a two-year incentive-based contract.

Use the rest to sign your rookies, re-sign McCluster, Abdullah, Schwartz, and Zombo.

He's done. Dorsey can dick around with his agent all he wants until FA finally begins, but once his agent tells him the first lucrative contract that another team has offered Albert Dorsey will say nothing but best wishes. Goodbye.

That's okay Chiefs really should keep their limited available money unspoken for to actually assess what hits the wires. Could be some much smarter buys

Albert's a good player. He's a good tackle. He's not average. He's solidly good. He's a veteran presence on the line, and he was by far our best offensive lineman on the team last year.

Yes, the contract is the key, but this team does NOT get better by ditching him. At least not in the short term. If he can be kept, then he absolutely should.
It depends on what the Chiefs will do with the $$$ that they spend on Albert as to if they would be better or not.

Weren't you one of the big leaders of the charge that Left Tackles should never be 1.1's? Especially if they're not elite?

If they shouldn't be 1.1's, then what makes you think they should be worth $10M+? Or that these guys are irreplaceable?

It's pretty hypocritical. I know you don't like Fisher, but if we assume we give the job to Stephenson, the drop off in losing Albert looks like it won't be very big.

Also... of course the team loses a starting talent. But guess what, you can spend that $10M+ elsewhere. So yes, the team probably does better if they start Fisher and Stephenson and use that $10M to sign a free safety.

If signing Albert prevents them from upgrading Safety and WR then I'm against it.

Where do you get the idea that he is saying he wants to pay Albert 10 mil in that post?

Given next year's schedule I suspect BA's just wanting March to get here really quickly...

As for Fish..... Just no. He may get better, but if BA bolts and Fish gets moved to LT, Alex may want to consider some more life insurance. Or shove a tampon up his ass to avoid those unsightly stains.

Who cares what the exact dollar figure is. The point is that SNR believes he should be paid "solidly good" money. For Left Tackles, that's going to be probably 8-11M given the new cap. And it's undoubtedly going to cost a lot more to sign Albert than the contract we gave Fisher.

Given what SNR has posted in the past, it's pretty clear his support for Albert is pushing a much bigger agenda, which is to question the Fisher pick in a new way.
