12:40 PM ET 04.18 | The Kansas City Chiefs have given the Miami Dolphins permission to speak with left tackle Branden Albert, according to ESPN's John Clayton. The two teams are negotiating a trade for that would send a second-round pick to Kansas City. Clayton adds that Albert will visit the Dolphins' facility soon for a physical. If Albert passed the physical, the next hurdles would likely be agreeing on the framework of a long-term deal with Miami and completed a trade with Kansas City. There have been clear signs that Albert was on his way out of Kansas City recently. He didn't show up to the team's offseason workout program in early April, and was a no-show for Chiefs minicamp this week. Albert was the only player missing from both events. Trade rumors surrounding the left tackle have been ongoing for much of the offseason. To protect themselves, the Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Albert, but have not signed him to a long-term deal.

So another disgruntled employee gets what he wants. These teams have to stop this non sense and force these guys to play out the contracts. Its just bs now. Don't like your pay or feel your missing the super bowl boat, just start bitching, tweeting, doing whatever to make your demands known and become a pain in the **** for your team. Agent 101 training school.

They let Jake Long go... why would they consider parting with their first round pick to sign some other team's franchised left tackle? Not to mention he's a downgrade.

truth and rumors is the only football "news" well get until draft day. i still dont understand why they released their RT Winston, a pretty solid RT from what I've heard, and after this draft theyll be without either a starting LT and RT.
