The Chiefs are fielding offers for left tackle, Branden Albert
Most franchises would deem a stud left tackle nearly untradable in today’s NFL game. Not the Kansas City Chiefs however, as they are listening to offers that would potentially send franchise left tackle, Branden Albert to the Miami Dolphins for their first round draft pick.

On the eve of the NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs are negotiating with the Miami Dolphins to potentially trade franchise-tagged left tackle Branden Albert while also taking calls from teams inquiring about dealing for the No. 1 overall pick.
“I got a few calls this morning and this afternoon,” Chiefs general manager John Dorsey told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday evening.
Before Dorsey could even finish that sentence, his iPhone started to buzz.
“And as you can see, here come some more,” Dorsey said. “You have to explore every option, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
General manager, John Dorsey and Andy Reid are said to have their eyes on four players they are considering for the first overall pick in the draft. However, they still want to maintain their flexibility by moving back if there is an attractive trade offer proposed to them.
Dorsey and Kansas City head coach Andy Reid have settled on four players they are considering for the top pick, two each on offense and defense. But they’re also mulling a move back should they receive an attractive enough trade offer.
Dorsey said the team narrowed its list to four players more than a week ago. If he and Reid have a favorite among them, they aren’t saying — not until their card is turned in Thursday evening.
