The Kansas City Chiefs intend to resume trade talks with Miami on Friday that could ultimately send franchise left tackle Branden Albert to the Dolphins.

According to ESPNs Chris Mortensen, it sounds like trade talks between the Chiefs and Dolphins might be going cold. Offensive tackle Brandon Albert may end up staying in Kansas City after all.

The two sides still have another 24 hours to hammer out a deal before the second round of the draft gets underway.
For the first time in franchise history, the Kansas City Chiefs held the first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Chiefs are expected to ship OT Branden Albert out of town via trade and the team has used the first overall selection to pick Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher. Kansas City laid out a smokescreen in recent weeks by working out West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith...
It’s tough to get too excited about Eric Fisher as the No. 1 pick, but it’s a solid fit and fills a need. Fisher may start his career at right tackle if the Chiefs hang on to Branden Albert, but Fisher’s future is definitely on the left side.
When you consider what Alex Smith did behind a solid line and a great running game in San Francisco, this could help the Chiefs turn...
LEAWOOD, Kan. Thats the beauty of the NFL Draft, isnt it? After a few drinks, everybodys a stinking expert.
"I just think Fisher has got something about him. Just looks like hes meaner," James Gutierrez said.
