The on again, off again trade talks between the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins appear to be on again, with the 2013 NFL Draft just over a day away. The Dolphins understand that a deal must be done very shortly if they are looking to make a move, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen on SportsCenter.

The two sides had a little hang up in the talks whenever the Dolphins realized they would need to shell out a second round pick and also be forced to pay Albert whatever he is asking for with his long-term contract — for Albert, that appears to be a very pricey $9 million per season — more than former Dolphins offensive tackle Jake Long got from the Rams.

Miami has the extra second round pick, so they can certainly afford to part ways with one of the selections in exchange for a player of Albert’s caliber.

For the Chiefs, picking up the added pick would be great work to an already impressive offseason
