NFL Injury Report:
It appears that the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs
could be mulling a trade that would send offensive lineman Branden Albert to
KC, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
The Dolphins are interested in Albert, and NFL.com notes
that a potential deal “makes too much sense.”
Miami is in need of a left tackle after losing Jake Long to
free agency. The Chiefs have Albert, but they are also expected to take a left
tackle with the No. 1 overall selection in the upcoming NFL Draft. For this
reason, they could consider Albert expendable.
This seems to be the case, as Peter King of Sports
Illustrated has recently reported that Kansas City is willing to deal Albert in
exchange for a second-round pick. The Dolphins just happen to have two
second-round picks. There are those around the NFL that expect a trade to get
done by draft night.
