Newest rumor is we are offering them just a third. If we could close for a third I'd be pretty damn happy. I understand people think LT isn't important but that is just not true. Each position is important and LT stopping the best pass rusher on the opposite team from killing your QB is important. Look at Rivers, or the Cards with Larry. No time because of crappy LT play equals crappy years for year in year out probowlers. If we can get Albert, especially for a third and give him a Beatty like contract, 7 mi/yr damn we'd be set going into the draft to just add premier players with no huge glaring holes. Sure we need to upgrade corners, safety, pass rush and OL but they aren't terrible. First three players in this draft could be just talent. That would be nice.
Let's go Miami!!!!

I also think they should wait until the draft to see what options present themselves. If KC can't trade him before the draft, does the price go down after they pick their LT? They really want to replace the 2nd round pick they traded, but maybe they panic and take a high 3rd on Friday night. Or do they grab something else at #1 if they have to keep Albert and push a tackle down? Imo, there is no need to do anything until the draft.
I'm starting to think you're actually serious about this. Are you offended anytime somebody brings up the "poison pill" when discussing the Welker trade? Just a heads up, they Pats didn't literally try to poison anybody
The only people that should be offended by a simple analogy like that are those who lost a friend to a poison cake. If that's the case, I apologize. Otherwise, lighten up. But congrats on avoiding having to address the point of the analogy (which wasn't anything to do with poisoning, in case you haven't figured that out).

Now, let's see.
Yielded only 13 pressures in 1,071 snaps—one of the lowest pressure rates in the NFL.
Pass Blocking Efficiency (PBE) rating of 96.6. 7th Ranked (The highest ever record was 97.9)
Running backs avg. a healthy 4.13 yards per carry on runs either side of him.
Allowed Just ONE SACK IN 2012 (His Quaterbacks Were Non Mobile Cassell and Quinn) We have T-hill
Missed Only 5 Games in His First 4 years (Missed 3 Games In 2012)
Started 73 Games In The NFL
Top 10 Salary AVG. For LT's is 9.3mill and for Guards 7.22mill
Franchise Player. The new regime didn't owe him jack-****, could have easily let him walk; similar to what we did with Long. We didn't think he (Long) was worth over 20 million guaranteed (because of injury issues) after paying him 30 Million on his first deal. Is J. Long worth 50 Million which is the total amount we would have ended up paying him on his second contract for those of you who keeps on harping on how much Albert is GOING to get paid, because that's what the market dictates he get's paid base on his performance.
Joe Philbin former O-line coach Okay's the discussion.
