For the last couple of weeks it seemed as though the Kansas City Chiefs would trade LT Branden Albert to the Miami Dolphins at any moment.

Only at never happened.

The Chiefs were reportedly looking for an early second-round pick for Albert. The Dolphins had two second-round picks, including one early in the round. It seemed like a perfect match.

Then on Thursday night, the Dolphins used their early second-round pick to trade up to the No. 3 slot in the first round to select DE Dion Jordon. There were some reports that the Dolphins were willing to deal the 54th pick to the Chiefs for Albert.

Yet the second round arrived and instead of making the trade, the Dolphins used the 54th pick to select CB Jamar Taylor.

At this point, it is hard to say what will happen to Branden Albert. As things stand, the Chiefs now have two very good LTs on their roster. It will be interesting to see if the Chiefs settle for less and deal Albert or if they will attempt to have either first-round pick Eric Fisher or Albert play right tackle for a season.

What do you think, Addicts? Will Albert still be on the roster come opening day? If he is, what position will be be playing?

    Good hope everyone is ready for an explosive high scoring offense this year GO CHIEFS!!!!! BA glad your here another year

  • Heilios

    Im glad Albert will stay! Let Fisher start set right tackle then we have one of the best lines in the league! Watch Charles destroy defenses from behind these two!

    • Travis Forsyth

      my thoughts exactly, kc needs to give albert the money he wants and plug fisher in at RT.

  • KCMikeG

    Fins just took their 3rd round pick. Albert will stay in KC and that works just fine for me. Albert, Schwartz, Hudson, Asamoah & Fisher will dominate with great developing depth in Stephenson & Allen. Charles and McCluster will terrify our opponents.

    • Heilios

      Hell yeah! We are all forgetting that mccluster will go into absolute beast mode! Ive always liked him and with he and charles running wild defense will fear us! Bowe running deep, Avery staying short, Baldwin finally showing up in games! This is what we’ve been waiting for! Its going to be an awesome season and we havent even seen any practices yet!

    I want to watch every dolphins game this year, just to see Tannehill get sat on his ass repeatedly cuz they have no LT. I will giggle with evil glee. I wanted the trade to get done, but I was happy to see Dorsey not give in and make us look weak.

    Albert is not a Left Tackle, plug him on the Right side and sign him to RIght Tackle salary for 4 years with a backloaded contract in case his back goes out again.
