    The report seems to run a bit contradictory to NFL Network's Monday evening story that claimed Miami is willing to meet Albert's asking price. Money no longer seems to be a sticking point as the Chiefs wait out the Dolphins' trade-compensation offer. It's believed the Fins are trying to get Albert for the 54th pick. Kansas City wants Miami's earlier second-rounder at No. 42 overall.

    It's a perfect example of how much misreporting goes on. One "reputable" source will say something completely contradictory to the other. They make Nick Saban look like a genuine guy by comparison.

    Re: FINS have had little or no communication with Albert!

    The bottom line is signing Albert before KC picks is stupid. Miami has all the negotiating leverage after.
    And if someone else gets him then it removes a competitor from the OT race.

    We have a backup plan it is Martin at LT

    It's a good old fashion standoff. Who'll blink first? Come on Jeff, stare them down.

    We'll know for sure by Friday. This smells like a staredown.

    KC OT Branden Albert? Contract demands turned off Dolphins, which is why little or no communication for almost 2 weeks. Who blinks?

    **** KC and their demands for our 42nd. That pop warner team has no leverage in this, they are screwed if they go into the season with $9m tied into Albert and a rookie LT picked 1st overall. 3rd rounder or nothing, this trade has NO logic after letting Long go. We would be paying him the same dollar amount as we would Long, but topping it off with losing a 2nd round pick as well. Makes no ****ing sense. As much as you Albert lovers sugar coat this, it's exactly what I stated above.

    Looks like someone is full of it. Hopefully this is true and the other report that we were willing to pay him big $$ is BS. I would like to pick him but but for a reasonable price. I would rather pick him up then trade up to get a OT.
