The ongoing saga regarding the Dolphins search for a starting left tackle continued into draft week. Rumors have been flying about a trade that would bring Branden Albert to Miami for a few weeks now. Earlier today, we learned that the talks between the two teams have stalled because of Albert’s contract demands.
Now, we’ve learned from ProFootballTalk.com that, as of Sunday, the Dolphins haven’t talked to the Chiefs in 5 days. We also saw an unconfirmed rumor on Twitter that the Chargers might be entering the mix. The Chargers are looking for offensive line help to protect their franchise QB, Phillip Rivers. And Albert would essentially do the same thing for the Chargers that it would for the Dolphins. Trading for Albert would alleviate the Chargers from needing to spend an early draft pick on a left tackle.
