Albert would be crazy expensive, but FYI...

Report: Chiefs will listen to Branden Albert trade offers

There may also be room for another left tackle to hit the market. The Chiefs franchised Branden Albert rather than let any other teams get a shot at signing him, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t willing to entertain offers to take him off their hands. Peter King of SI.com reports that the Chiefs will listen to any trade proposals made by others.

It would seem like a while before there’d be any movement on that front. The left tackle market is dwindling a bit, but teams still have options at free agent for tackles that would cost less than signing Albert for the long term is likely to cost. And that’s without giving up any compensation to Kansas City for the right to give Albert that contract.

The Chiefs are already willing to part ways with Albert? And this is just a week or two removed from them cutting Winston?

So let's assume this trade happens. That leaves the Chiefs without BOTH of their tackles going into the draft. Not to mention, both of them were pretty solid players. Sure the speculation is that one of the two top OTs gets picked, but you need to fill TWO spots.

No wonder the chiefs have consistently underperformed.

Its because the Chiefs want to move him to RT & he won't do it. It probably tips their hand that the plan is to draft ole boy from A&M. If they do, they'll have a fight on their hands with Albert, so their best move is to trade him.

But that also means they're not sold on him @ LT, so I don't think we should be either.

He is an awesome LT, very under rated, heads and tails better than bushrod, looks like the chiefs will be drafting joeckel or fisher
I think he has had some injury concerns though and may have signed his franchise tag. So, it would require a huge contract along with draft or player compensation. Pass
