Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has been in the NFL business too long to rule anything out. He has been dealing with offensive tackle Branden Albert and his unhappiness in a few areas, including being franchised and wanting a new deal. However, once the Miami Dolphins signed Tyson Clabo, that door (which was the only one) was slammed shut. Albert realized he’d run out of options and started mending fences, but Reid won’t rule out trading the discontent lineman. The team and Albert have entered into preliminary negotiations, but no one knows how that will end up. It’s a safe bet Reid still has Albert on his trade radar, in his first year as coach Reid is looking for players who are hungry to prove themselves on the field, not prove to be a pain in the backside off of it. "In this league . . . nothing is ever dead," Reid said, via Adam Teicher of the Miami Herald. "Everything stays pretty fluid in this league. To say that, I don't think you can say that type of thing." "I understand that this is part of the game, and players go through this," Reid said. "Branden Albert is a good kid. I don't like this part of the game. I've been around it long enough where I've got it. It gave him an opportunity here to see where everybody is at with him and how they feel. We'll see how things work out as we continue on. I understand. Like I said, I can't tell you I like it, but that's part of the game. "I would tell you that I think he's a good football player and can help our football team out."
