The NFL Draft came and went and Branden Albert is still a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. While a trade didn't take place, Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland told Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald that there's a chance the deal could still happen.
The Dolphins still haven't filled the void left by offensive lineman Jake Long, who signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis Rams earlier this offseason. While Miami didn't acquire Albert, they also didn't draft a player that will clearly fall into the left or right tackle position.
Ireland said that an Albert trade didn't make sense during the NFL Draft, but he told Salguero that he didn't want to say never when it came to reaching an agreement down the road.
"Yeah. Again, I never say never. I don't want to get
into the details of that trade right now when it could or couldn't happen done
down the road."
The Chiefs don't have a clear need for Albert any longer considering they drafted Eric Fisher with the first-overall pick on Thursday.
