    I still consider him to be a strong player. Had some injuries with his age, but he could hold it down for most games. He always seemed like a team player, took Tunsil under his wing knowing he would replace him, the man just wanted to get paid since his days were drawing to a close. If the CK report is true that OG was a position Albert was willing to play, and if he accepts the market won't be there for a big pay day and retirement looks likely, I would hope Miami takes a shot offering a cheap contract. I know Cutler chewed up a bunch of what we had left, but OLine is a big concern for 2017. I would be okay with sprinkling a little bit of that cap his way.

    Too expensive, hasn't played guard, and won't finish the season. Literally the only reason his name was brought up was because he's a former Dolphin. And all based on some practices and a meaningless scrimmage.

    Albert played guard for a number of years before converting to tackle, didn't he?

    He was a Guard at Virginia. I don't think he played Guard in the pros.

    Not in the pros. He moved to LG in college to make room for D'Brickashaw Ferguson at LT
