It is no secret that the Kansas City Chiefs are trying to find a buyer for offensive tackle Branden Albert, and the Miami Dolphins are the team that is actively interested. Kansas City gave Albert permission to speak with the Dolphins late this week and it appears that Albert, who lives in Miami, is making progress with the Dolphins that could lead to a deal.
According to a report from Mike Jurecki, Albert and the Dolphins are currently discussing a contract.

It’s a great move for Miami to take a proven talent to sure up their offensive line. It also allows Jonathan Martin to stay at right tackle, while Albert fills the void left by Jake Long’s departure.
For the Chiefs, it allows them to pick up the pick they lost in the trade for Alex Smith and they can bring in a young offensive tackle without any fear of a negative reaction from their veteran at the position.
All signs point to this deal getting done in the coming days.
