Dolphins willing to meet Branden Albert's demands
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Dolphins are willing to meet Albert's asking price, that being a contract similar to the six-year, $53.4 million contract extension signed by Houston Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown last summer.
This stands in contrast to a recent report by Yahoo! Sports that stated the Dolphins and Albert wouldn't be a match unless his price "comes down significantly."
If the financial end is taken care of, only compensation between the teams is left to be worked out. The Chiefs want a second-round pick. The Dolphins own two (at No. 42 and No. 54).
If the Chiefs are willing to take the later pick, we should have ourselves a deal.
