Branden Albert Trade: Chiefs’ GM John Dorsey Says He’ll Call Dolphins Saturday Morning


The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped up the second and third rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft last night.The Chiefs did not have a second round pick but did have two third round picks thanks to a compensatory pick the club was awarded after losing CB Brandon Carr in free agency last offseason.

The Chiefs GM spoke briefly with the media after the third round. Naturally he was asked about the Branden Albert situation. He said he would continue to dabble in the trade market throughout the rest of the draft.

“Well right now, all along it’s been an ongoing process,” said Dorsey. “It will be an ongoing process until the end of the draft takes place. So we’ll see what happens tomorrow, right now it’s the same as it was yesterday. It will be continually going on and we’ll see what happens.”

It was thought the Chiefs would trade Albert to the Miami Dolphins for a second-round pick but the transaction never happened.

According to Dorsey, however, he plans to continue to talk with Miami GM Jeff Ireland.

“That I’d call him back tomorrow morning,” said Dorsey when asked how he left things with Ireland.

It is hard to see the Chiefs and Dolphins getting something done at this point. I can only see this happening if the Dolphins offer up a couple of high picks in 2014. That may be to Dorsey’s liking but it won’t make the Chiefs better this year, which would likely be disappointing to fans.

    Anything less than the late 2nd rd pick would just be insulting and infuriating. I don’t see what the could give us that would be worth Albert at this point.

      I think when we drafted that TE it sealed BA’s fate…TONY M has one of the highest contracts of the “releasable players”. Dont be suprised to see Him and K. Lewis cut to make room for the rookie contracts. I really belive we would have went in a diffrent direction if the trade went down.

    Next year’s #2 maybe? Can’t see it happening. I think the ship has sailed, Dorse. Should’ve taken the 54th pick.

      from what it sounds like the Dolphins didnt want to give up even that pick.

        The Chiefs should be demanding their 1st rounder next year if they still want Albert. Otherwise, tell them to piss off and give A. Smith an OLine this year that rivals what SF has. We’ll be getting a compensatory 3rd for Albert in 2015 anyway if he walks next year.

        • Donkeyhater

          Agree with that

  • Doug McD

    The funny thing here is the Dolphins have taken only 1 offensive player so far. A 77th pick tackle. They may not perceive the need as great as everyone else does.

    I think we trade for a draft pick next year, just to get out from under the $ issue.

  • Larry Devore

    Don’t call. Makes it seem like KC is desparate to move Albert

    • Outback Chief

      if they don’t trade him this year they’ll get zero for him next year and he’ll be released

      • ArrowFan

        We will get a comp pick

        • Outback Chief
