Branden Albert trade talks resume in the morning

Thomas B. Shea

The KC Chiefs and Miami Dolphins will continue to discuss a potential trade of Branden Albert on Friday, the second day of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Miami Dolphins surprised us earlier, moving up from the No. 12 pick all the way to the No. 3 pick. But it wasn't for an offensive tackle, as many had assumed. It was for pass rusher Dion Jordan out of Oregon. That was the big surprise in Kansas City because it left open the possibility that Branden Albert could still be traded.

The Chiefs and Dolphins, who have been talking for several weeks now, were said to be haggling over the compensation in a trade for Albert -- which pick(s) will the Dolphins give up? They have two second round picks -- No. 42 and No. 54.

That 42nd pick is now gone. The Dolphins used it in their ammo to move up, meaning it's no longer on the table. Any trade for Albert would now include the Dolphins No. 54 overall pick. (Well, that's what we think. We don't really know anything.)

That brings us to this:

This doesn't tell us much other than that the trade remains a possibility. A good one? Bad one? I have no idea. As the reports throughout this saga have shown us, not many people really know what's going on with the trade talks.

We wait another day.
