Let's just be up front about this: No one knows what's going on with the Branden Albert situation. There are reports, rumors and all kinds of things being thrown out there about this.

KC Chiefs GM John Dorsey told media outlets that the hold-up in the Albert trade talks with the Miami Dolphins was over the trade compensation -- the draft picks. Multiple other reports stated that Albert and the Dolphins had agreed on the parameters of a long-term deal if the trade ends up going down.

But wait!

This is in contrast with this one:

And this...

Yahoo! Sports: The Miami Dolphins have ironed out their differences with offensive tackle Branden Albert on a possible long-term contract and continue to talk to the Kansas City Chiefs about a possible trade.


Miami Herald: The Dolphins have the parameters of a contract ready and practically agreed with left tackle Branden Albert. The sides -- the player and the Dolphins -- have an understanding of what it will cost in money compensation to get a contract done.

So ... which one is it?
