Report: Money is keeping Brandon Albert from being traded to the Dolphins

According to, ESPN’s Ed Werder has reported that the hold up with sending Brandon Albert from the Chiefs to the Dolphins has to do with the amount of money he’s looking for in a long-term extension.

ESPN’s Ed Werder reported Wednesday that money is indeed the holdup in Branden Albert-to-Miami trade discussions.
The report runs in direct contrast to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network’s, who reported Fins GM Jeff Ireland is willing to pay Albert top left-tackle money, leaving the hangup as draft-pick compensation. Again, in Lying Season it’s very difficult to know what to believe. Werder has a virtually impeccable track record and has become more and more plugged-in around the NFL while having his ESPN role increased over the past year. Ultimately, the Chiefs and Dolphins are likely just posturing. We fully expect Albert to end up in Miami.
This makes sense since the Dolphins let Jake Long walk in free agency because they didn’t want to pay him the same money that Albert is now looking for.
