NFL Free Agency 2014: Miami Dolphins reach agreement with Branden Albert

The Miami Dolphins were one of the first teams to make a splash as the NFL Free Agency period opened up on Tuesday as they reached an agreement with former Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive tackle Branden Albert on a five-year deal.

Albert was one of the more coveted free agent offensive linemen on the market this year, and the Dolphins wasted no time in breaking the back to make sure that they acquired his services.

Miami was definitely in need of landing an offensive tackle after what happened last season with veteran Bryant McKinnie. The team signed McKinnie thinking he could be the answer up front, which ultimately didn’t turn out to be the case as he was a shell of his former self.

Now, Albert will be tasked with being the anchor of the offense up front, which is in dire need of a rebuild.
