    Andy Reid: Branden Albert, Dolphins aren't talking

    Now that the Kansas Chiefs have lowered their asking price on franchise player Branden Albert , the Miami Dolphins are interested in acquiring
    the left tackle.Although a source tells ESPN's John Clayton that the Dolphins have been granted permission to talk to and visit with Albert, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is denying the report.In other words, either Clayton's source is wrong or Reid is taking liberties with the truth. Perhaps theChiefs plan to grant permission to help facilitate the trade but have pulled back a bit for leverage purposes.Ultimately, it's a trade that makes too much sense not to happen.In his pre-draft conference call Thursday, NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock opined that surrendering a new mega contract and a draft pick for Albert should give most teams hesitation. But for the Dolphins, "I'm in," Mayock said.

    Yes this is not nearly as far along as people believe. There's no permission, or contact between Albert and the Dolphins. There's no physical, nothing going on that way. The Dolphins and Chiefs may have had some discussions about him but that's as far as it's gone. It's gone no further.

    You have made my day. I thought Ireland was halfway towards turning the off-season into a dumpster fire. I'm not completely oppsed to Albert in Auqa and Orange, but it isn't worth a 2nd rnd pick and $9 million per.

    I trust John Clayton's report more than Andy Reid's comment.

    Contact with the agent would be the first move anyways...agree on a framework of a deal....have a physical. Finalize a deal and then talk finish the deal with the Chiefs.

    I wasn't trying to say its "dead" or anything. I have word I trust that Albert hasn't met with anyone, no medical stuff or anything like that has occurred or is even scheduled. I also saw Reid's total denial so I took that piece of info at face value (oops), but even if permission is granted doesn't mean meetings, physicals and all that are occurring or scheduled to occur.

    The impression the reporting was giving was that this thing is waist deep already, an inevitability. I don't think it's there yet.

    Fair enough. I always respect your takes. I have stated from the start that the Albert talks would be hot come the week of the draft...not a few weeks ago when people wanted the issue solved ASAP and not made to fester.

    Reid does not want Albert, but loves his picks. I see this getting done, but not for a 2. I am standing by that. We shall see.

With what he will cost in terms of a contract, he's flat not worth a 2nd, but they might take less next Thursday night after they have picked when the pressure is all on them..
    That is my issue...because of the player's contract, giving up a 2 is steep. 3b or 4...fine. However, come September in Cleveland, I want my LT taken care of. So at this point, I want the real deal at LT.
