    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.

    I watched the interview on ESPN. Reid said he did not give permission for Miami to speak DIRECTLY TO Albert, BUT gave permission for us to speak WITH HIS AGENT!

    The deal still looks imminent if a contract can be hammered out.

    Pure coach speak. I highly highly doubt we are not talking to Albert, that is if we havent already talked to him.
    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    Andy Reid still has an evil grin on his face thinking about the A.J. Feeley trade.

    We had better HOPE we aren't. Albert is the property of the KC chiefs, and under contract to them. If we get caught talking to Albert without their permission there will be a penalty involved.

    There is no tampering going on. The slower the pace goes, the better for the Fins. Reid wants his picks on draft day. In the end, if it is 54 so be it. However, might as well still hold out for a lower pick. Albert will be toxic asset for them if they attempt to move him to RT and or do not extend him.

    kc wouldn't be letting miami negotiate with albert unless they had the parameters of a deal ironed out pretty much...i'm sure they've already agreed on the compensation likely pick #54 and now the only hold up is getting albert to agree to terms on the extension...and i doubt that is gonna take long...

    I am still stuck on why the Fins would invest the salary and picks in Albert, when we could have kept Jake Long. I am not so sure that Albert is the answer.
    I would use 2 picks in the 2nd-4th round on OT's and hope they get it right with one of them.
