    I don't want his fat a$$ on our team for 9 million per, even if the chiefs were giving US a 2nd rd pick. Sit tight and hope Lane drops to where we can get him or wait for Armstead at 42. If both are gone, get Winston on the phone.

    Martin and Tannehill weren't ready to start last year, but they did and they played well. Not saying this is the case every time, but let's take another shot. See what those young guys bring...


    ANYTHING is better than trading a 2nd round pick and signing a contract that exceeds Jake Longs, for a 29 yr old, bad back having slow footed tackle. Anything...
    2014 Mock Draft

    1. Zack Martin - OT/OG - Notre Dame
    2. Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
    3. C.J. Fiedeorowicz - TE - Iowa
    4. Trai Turner - OG - LSU
    5. Brandon Thomas - OT/OG - Clemson
    6. Storm Johnson - RB - South Florida
    7. Calvin Barnett - DT - Oklahoma State

    and now you know what albert is on the block...his salary demands have been out of whack...the chiefs didn't tag him just to get compensation in trade the salary demands are where the chiefs have the issue...and it's something that if this trade happens should concern miami fans...what exactly that contract extension looks like...
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    The longer this goes on the more leverage we have. The Chefs want to move on from Albert and thought they had a dance partner, but Fat Albert won't cooperate. If they draft one of the top 3 tackles they will still have the problem child who won't play RT or G for them, even at 9M for one year. At that point they have to change the pick or accept lower compensation, say a 3rd instead of #54. KC is screwed, they don't get their cheaper franchise LT and still have their problem child. There are good players to be had with that draft pick we were sending to the Chefs. If we don't move on one of the big 3 we can still find a T in the 2nd or 3rd.

    It may be best for him to move on but he doesn't want to take a bad deal to do so. If the Chiefs draft his replacement this year, that doesn't mean that replacement has to replace him at left tackle this year.
    Definitely listen to this entire segment:
