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.

I would have loved to see this place if Dorsey just let Albert walk.

It wasn't that long ago damn near everyone was saying that about Sociopath Scott. And we see where that got us.

There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again.

If Geno goes to PHI and thrives those of us that wanted Chip Kelly will just be thrilled! Especially now that Reid is going to build him team around a ****ing LT.

Brendan Albert's absolute deal ceiling is Jake Long's deal and he thinks hes worth more than that.

What would you propose doing? Franchise him again next year?

I understand the outrage, but the other option was to let him walk. Is that a more desirable option? They talked to him at length before FA started and he's made heavy demands and the Chiefs have their concerns about him.

I know no one on here has any concerns about him, but they really don't seem all that outrageous to me. I liked Albert, but I don't view him as one of the 10 best LT's in the league. Some do on here. Agree to disagree.

I do think Albert pissed them off quite a bit with his tweeting and interviews. Reid and Dorsey only know Albert as a good, but mouthy and whining player that's telling them he's not coming in until they sign him to a long term deal.

He didn't help his cause, but I don't think this team based their decision on Albert's social media interactions.

Albert is an injury prone player who has never even made a pro bowl in 5 years and he's going around demanding big money?

No wonder Reid and Dorsey told him to **** off.

Who gives a **** about Albert's contract demands?

If the other option is pissing away 1.1, pay that man his money.

Injury prone?

And using probowls? Alex Smith has never made the probowl either.... and speaking of injury prone. Guess who has finished 5 out of 7 seasons on the bench or injured reserve?


Holy shit you just ****ed yourself over.
