Branden Albert available for 2nd-round pick?

Citing chatter at the NFL Owners Meetings, ESPN's John Clayton believes the Dolphins could acquire franchise player LT Branden Albert from the Chiefs in exchange for a second-round draft pick.
Albert signed his one-year, $9.828 million tender on Monday and is available for trade. Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland has a need at left tackle and two second-round picks: Nos. 42 and 54. Trading for Albert would likely also require Miami signing him to a long-term extension. The Dolphins have structured their free-agent contracts in a backloaded manner and still have $15 million in cap room.

Re: Branden Albert available for 2nd-round pick?

I thought he was a much better RT than LT?
Am I thinking of someone else?

Anyway... Pass.

Lose a pick (or likely two in our case) and still have to sign him at 9 mill / season?

No thanks

He is. If/when the Chiefs take Joeckel, he'll be playing LT.

Godhell saw this scenario playing out............that explains why he still took away our second round draft pick even after the whole oraganization buckled and bowed to him. Either that or Vilma really pizzed him off.
Either way Godhell is a douche.
