Source: Chiefs, Dolphins table talks for Albert
The Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs have agreed not to further discuss a potential trade involving Kansas City left tackle Branden Albert until after both teams make their first-round selections in Thursday night's NFL draft.The Dolphins and Chiefs agreed not to further discuss a potential trade involving Kansas City left tackle Branden Albert until after both teams made their first-round selections in Thursday night's NFL draft, according to a league source.
Those picks came quickly.
The Chiefs selected Central Michigan's Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall selection.
After the Jaguars grabbed Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel at No. 2, Miami traded up with Oakland at No. 3 and selected Oregon linebacker/defensive end Dion Jordan. The Dolphins dealt their Nos. 12 and 42 picks to the Raiders.
With the Dolphins not drafting a tackle in the first round to replace Jake Long, their interest in trading for Albert could increase, meaning the Chiefs wouldn't be stuck with a player who carries a $9.8 million franchise tag and who plays the same position as Fisher.
Chiefs general manager John Dorsey previously said the team would not let Albert's status deter it from taking the best player on its board Thursday night.
"I don't think you can do that," Dorsey said.
