While no tampering period deals have been agreed upon, it appears that one team has used the extra time to hammer out a deal with one of the top left tackle free agents on the market. Branden Albert has been linked to a slew of teams, but the Dolphins have always been at the top of the list and their hunger to sign him is very real.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, league sources have indicated that all signs point to Albert becoming the newest member of the Miami Dolphins when free agency opens on Tuesday.
Per a league source, all signs currently point to Albert signing with the Dolphins not long after the market officially opens on Tuesday.
The Dolphins have made replacing their offensive line problems by moving away from the bullying scandal that rocked the locker room. They were going hard after Albert and while they may end up overpaying for him, it appears that Miami will be one of the first teams to announce a deal on Tuesday.
