    Trade for Albert NOW before demand goes UP!!!

    Right now it is most likely KC who is holding up the trade, not Miami. Them picking a LT is a foreknown conclusion, so it isn't Miami who would gain leverage on draft day by the Chiefs selecting Joeckel or Fisher. The fact that they are trying to trade Albert reveals that. What gives KC the leverage are the OTHER TWO LTs.

    Once Fisher/Joeckel and Lane Johnson are gone, demand for Albert will RISE.

    SD would then join the Albert sweepstakes by offering their higher 2nd rounder for Albert completely taking the 54th pick out of the picture and forcing our 42nd pick.

    Right now, the demand is only us because DET, ARI, BUF, and SD don't yet know for sure whether Lane Johnson will drop to them or not yet. Once Fisher/Joeckel are gone, Lane Johnson becomes the hottest commodity and then the teams left without that LT and need one badly ie SD and MIA now become the teams to offer KC their 2nd round picks for Branden Albert.

    At this point, those who aren't blind bats can see that SD's 2nd round pick is pick 45. Only our 42nd pick would beat their offer eliminating the 54th pick from the scenario. Right now, if KC bites, we can get away with landing Albert for pick 54. Once the draft comes and Lane Johnson doesn't drop to SD, Albert becomes only available for the 42nd pick because SD's 45th beats out our 54th. Common sense why Ireland and Aponte want to do the trade NOW, not Thursday.

    Trade for Albert! I'd hate to go into the season with a rookie on one side and a second year player on the other. Experience matters... we don't have the time to give the rookie a learning curve. This isn't a rebuilding year for us! Our first 7 games our crucial to us doing well this year. Trade Now!!!!

    If, and it's a big if, the #4, 5 and 6 slots are all looking to trade back, maybe we can trade up for next to nothing and land us a LT rather than using the same pick to get an overpriced 29 year old LT who is damaged goods. We are young so let's continue to stay young and grow together.

    No, If KC picks a LT with the first they now have an extra LT that they dont want to pay for. Our leverage goes up. Just because we need a LT does not mean we have to get him. KC will have to get what they can get for him. I say hold our cards and keep all of our picks and after the draft it we did not fill the position like we wanted to then you offer KC your next years 2nd round pick. They almost have to get rid of him.

    Demand for Albert is not and will not go up. I do not believe SD or Arizona are interested.

    Im not sure how you suggested that by having 3 OL in the first round increases KC's leverage. It actually decreases their leverage because we could simply say, the hell with you, we'll trade up and just draft a guy or sign Winston. Add in the fact that everyone KNOWS KC is drafting a LT, their leverage decreases even further. Miami has options, KC does not. Miami has far more leverage than KC does as it stands.
    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    what a joke of a thread. i cant believe the people in this thread want to put themselves in cap hell 2 years from now (right when our qb is going to need to be extened). there is a business side to football, this isnt madden. you cant just spend and spend especially for a player with injury and attitude problems. if the dolphins do what you are suggesting, this will not end wel.

    We let a guy go who is hell of a lot better than this guy and now we're desperate all over again? Let the draft play out and stop reaching with these knee-jerk threads.
