Default Chiefs shopping LT Branden Albert

NFL Network reporting Kansas City may be shopping Pro Bowl LT Branden Albert. They also report they may be looking for a 2nd round pick for him. Probably can't afford him without jettisoning another player, but interesting.

I remember wanting him when he was drafted. Most thought he would play as a guard in the NFL.

What a monster this guy turned out to be. Imagine him joining our line. Talk about going from the outhouse to the penthouse in just 1 year. With our young guys healthy, and a guy like this as the rock on the left side, our offensive line will be young and powerful instantly. Just add water...instant running game!

I know. That's why I stated in my original post that they would have to cut someone like Keisel or another high salary, high profile player to make room for him.

The chiefs want a 2nd this year and a pick next year.Make the trade on condition of us signing him to long term deal.
Yes he has a 9.8 million cap number but i believe that is only with KC once he is trade the franchise tag expires.

Last year his cap number 3.1million.
offer 6 year 60 with 24 million signing bonus.
first year 5 million cap (1 million base plus 4 million signing bonus)

Where do we get money for 1st year.Currently we are 2.7 million under cap.
The answer Health Miller.
Pay cut 3 million. Since he will most likely be out til late november,early december.Why pay him his full salary

It definitely won't happen but it's still fun to discuss. We can't afford him especially with Pouncey probably wanting to be the highest paid center after this season.
With that said we would have one of the top lines in the NFL if we signed Albert. We would be sick with him at LT then a contest between Gilbert and Adams for the right side. Maybe even try the losers of the contest against Foster for guard.
