    That's what i'm talking about cuz!!!! Now that's a solid strategy for which i can give Ireland props. If he goes about it that way i will be completely floored. How could anyone disagree with this approach?

    yeah, we hold the cards in every direction. Teams want our 2nd round picks cus they have none. They want to trade down out cus there guy will still be there at 12 possibly. And the Albert talk probably promted these teams to committ to us more.

    Oakland has sparano too so I dont write off trading players in a package to get Fisher who I think we covet more.

    Goddamnit this trade is so ****ing stupid Branden Albert is barely above average and he wants too much money. We'd be better served using our 2nd round pick to draft a LT, we've done enough win now moves that we just need to draft our own ****ing players.

    I do believe he's doing that to be honest but this is such a rash and stupid move.

    Probably already been said. But can't we trade our 2 to a team looking to get out of the top 10? That would allow us to get a lt that is younger and CHEAPER!

    Contract talks(money) may be the deciding factor moving up and get one of the top 3 tackles.If 1 of the 3 top tackles are there at 6,Miami moves up and negates the Albert trade.

    Remember,money is why we let Long walk.........

    The latest on Jake: Momentum appears to be growing for left tackle Jake Long to re-sign with the Dolphins.

    Long, 27, left St. Louis on Friday without a deal after spending the better part of three days with the Rams’ football and medical staffs. While reports have surfaced that the Dolphins are “making a charge” to sign Long, the buzz in league circles is that he’s not getting offered anywhere near the $10 million annually he would like. Teams clearly are wary of his injury history and declining performance.

    Long initially balked at the Dolphins’ offer – believed to be around $7 million to $8 million a year – but it might be the best offer he gets.
