Sounds Like Albert To Miami Is Dead

While there’s no official word on the subject from inside the Chiefs Draft Room it appears a possible trade of LT Branden Albert is a dead issue.

At 7:02 p.m. Friday, the Miami Dolphins used their second-round choice, No. 54 and selected CB Jamar Taylor out of Boise State.

That was the second of two choices in the round that the Dolphins had when the NFL Draft started on Thursday. A possible trade between the Chiefs and Fins involving LT Branden Albert was hung up on compensation in a trade from Miami.

Now, without any second round picks to make the deal work, it’s highly doubtful the Chiefs will pull the trigger on a deal for something less.

About the only thing that could save a deal would be possibly a second-round selection in next year’s draft, but that would have to come with some sort of sweetener to make it worthwhile for the Chiefs.

    I was hoping before the draft they’d be able to make the trade, but now I’m ok with this. The Fisher pick seems like a real positive, and it sounds like he really is versatile enough and brainy enough to play right tackle until the time comes to make the switch to the left side. Still not sure about the center of the line, but it seems like Smith won’t be running for his life, anyway.

    I am not sure that the Chiefs ever wanted to let Albert go unless they got a deal they couldn’t pass up. I think they were trying to let Albert find out what his true value on the open market was. Last year was the year to be a free agent. This year is completely different.
