The Miami Dolphins are clearly looking to upgrade their offensive line.  As we told you earlier, the Dolphins are talking with both RT Eric Winston and OG Brandon Moore.  The Dolphins are said to be interested in both players, but will want them to come to Miami at the Dolphins price. Photo Courtesy of Jeffrey Beall via Wikipedia.org That brings us to another interesting name that keeps popping up.  Brandon Albert, the left tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs.  Albert was given the franchise tag by the Chiefs and officially signed it today.  So what?  Well, the fact that he signed it, now means that he can be traded….and it appears the Chiefs are looking to trade him.   Why would the Chiefs want to trade their left tackle?  Well, most mock drafts have the Chiefs selecting a left tackle with the #1 pick in the draft.  And apparently Albert doesn’t want to move to guard or right tackle. Then there are two big questions surround Albert, who will be 29 in November……1. How much will the Chiefs want in a trade?  and 2. How much will Albert want in the form of a contract?  Let’s look at the first question. The Chiefs traded away their 2nd round pick for Alex Smith, so they probably would start negotiations with a 2nd rounder.  I wouldn’t give that up for Albert, I just think it’s too steep of a price.  (cont’d on page 2, click here)
