    Per Path to the draft.
    At the right price that would be a great trade. I just saw it on TV so I don't have a link.

    I would do it if we can get him for to sign a decent contract. If he don't then move on.

    54 eh? I guess I could live with that. I still work for a 3 or 4. I like Albert.

    I would offer 3a and a 7th.But 2b(54) is probably worth it.

    If we can sign Albert for a reasonable contract i would happily give the 54th for a proven LT that has played very well in this league rather than an unproven guy in the draft. Albert still has a lot of very good years left in him.

    Hard to believe we're offering 54 when we know KC don't want him. We shold have never offer anything more than a 3rd. I'm very upset at the FO doing this. Nobody has even offer them anything so why a 2nd round pick for a guy that has played 16 games only once?

    Ozzy rules!!

    I think it's a bad move to get him but when I rationalize it as Vontae for Albert, which is basically what it is I can live with that.

    Lets make this deal Jeff, then we can draft eifert or Austin @12 then go corner in rnd 2. I've been picturing us running two TE sets with Keller and eifert down In the red zone and it gets me fired up.

    It would almost be a Vontae Davis for Albert trade.

    Path to the Draft also commented that this trade wouldn't happen until the first round is in progress to make sure one of the 3 tackles doesn't fall to 12. So this trade could be contingent on how the draft unfolds.

    I wonder why make an offer NOW as oppose to AFTER the draft? When KC drafts Albert replacement don't they lose Leverage? Unless, we would likely be the desperate team because we wouldn't necessarily draft a Offensive Linemen and would be at a CRITICAL need after the draft.

    Everyone on Path to the Draft also assumed that the Albert trade was going to get done.

    ---------- Post added at 04:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:45 PM ----------

    That is why KC is taking only a latter second round pick for an above average NFL starter LT.

    I would like the trade if Miami could trade the 12th pick and maybe a later pick for a pick in the 20's and an additional 2nd round pick.

    because they need an OT so if they cant work out a trade for albert then htey will draft an OT... it seems like the FO doesnt want any of the FA OTs out there

    They tagged him so he's hardly unwanted.

    Because we also don't know if another team could sneak in and offer a more attractive trade right before or during the draft. If that happens and Miami doesn't get a T, then we're screwed and scrambling to sign Winston (at a likely higher price since he has more leverage) or some scrub (or even worse...start Garner at RT).

    Not true. it's highly possible that if KC doesn't trade him, they keep him at LT a non-lineman.

    If this goes through we are most certainly trading down in rd 1 to get more picks. Ireland has prob already talked to Minn, SF, and/or Atl and has some idea of what he can do next Thursday.

    Vonte for Albert and the same number of 1st and 2nd rd picks in a draft where there is little parity between 15 and 60.... Fine.

    It fills a need and as long as he isn't going to be a cap nightmare, it's worth it.

    Yep, it'll come down to the contract for Jeff. I think KC has already accepted the 54 pick, it's up to Albert at this point.

    Like they stayed, your not going to find a LT at 54 no where near as good as Albert, he's still young and would allow us to not sell the farm to trade up and get Johnson, Fisher, or Joeckel. We would then have 4 picks in the first 3 rounds to add 3 starters and get the season on a roll. Impact players that can play right now and let's get ourselves in the playoffs now

    No way we gave up on Long and now we are paying picks and money for Albert. Id rather just get Armstead with that same pick.

    Armstead ain't gonna be there at 54. The thought of starting two unproven tackles with the team we have in place doesn't exactly scream comfortability. I'd still go sign Clabo and save the pick, but I don't mind this move all things considered.

    I say we agree in word to offer a second after KC drafts an OT with their pick, and then as soon as they do, we drop out offer to a third. Payback to Reid for one AJ Feeley!

    We did not give up on Long. He gave up on us.

    If this goes down, I think the draft will look something like:

    12. Cooper
    42. Amerson
    54. Traded for Albert

    Not my preferred route.

    Franchised just means without working out a deal u have to give up certain picks but KC can agree to any trade

    I'd be willing to give KC our #42 pick for Albert and their #101. That's the first pick on day 3 after teams have had all night to assess their boards and see which players have slipped. We can either get a second- or third-round caliber player with that pick, or trade it to another team for their 2014 third.

    No. Albert was a unrestricted free agent. I think you are thinking of restricted free agents who are tendered at a certain level.

    Teams should be prepared enough that the break in action shouldn't make a huge difference. You should know who is slipping, etc. If you're looking to trade the pick, that's where the extra time would obviously help.

    You can probably get Winston and Clabo for the contract Albert wants and you get to keep your 2nd round pick!

    Albert is a former #1 who is only rated the 25th best tackle in the NFL. I really hope his best years are ahead of him. I guess our FO feels that they can get better out of him than he has shown so far. Lot's of penalties and sacks givin up early on in his career. He did well in 2012 so I hope he's acending. If the trade happens we should grab Austin or Eifert at #12. After that BPA but I wouldn't wait too long before getting another runningback.

    hayden fox, if we trade for albert do you select cooper if he's there? albert-cooper-pouncey-cogs-martin looks to be elite on paper.

    NO NO, if we are going to start playing that game it would be Vontae and JAKE for Albert. If we are going to pay 9 mil we could have just spent it on Jake and kept the pick.
