The Miami Dolphins have upgraded their left tackle position from Bryant McKinnie to former Kansas City Chiefs tackle Branden Albert who will sign with the team on the first day of free agency on Tuesday and will be receiving $10 million dollars per season according to Jason LaCanfora.
When the Dolphins announce their deal with T Branden Albert tomorrow, he will end up getting $10M/season. Quite a haul

The Dolphins have been rumored to be the front-runners to sign the former first round pick out of Virginia for the past few days and if there is one person happier than Albert to get this deal done it’s Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill who was sacked 47 times in 2013.
The Dolphins offensive line was a mess with the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying scandal rocking the NFL and crippling the effectiveness of the Miami ground game and not giving Tannehill the necessary time to find Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline in the passing game.
