My biggest problem with a potential Albert trade is that we would be giving up a second round pick and giving him a big money contract. Probably the same contract that Jake Long signed with the Rams, that is the part that is tough to swallow. I understand that Long chose the Rams over the Dolphins, but it still hurts that we could have resigned him for no draft pick compensation.
There is no denying that Albert is a good player and would be a great fit on the line, and it will be better to give up a second round pick instead of a first and second round pick for Lane Johnson. The Jake Long part of the whole thing is what is weighing heavy on me.
