NFL Draft Trade Rumors: Branden Albert, Davone Bess, Chris Ivory, & the #1 Pick




The Kansas City Chiefs are negotiating with the Miami Dolphins  on a deal that would send offensive tackle Branden Albert to Miami for a second-round draft pick. KC wants one of Miami’s two second-round picks (Nos. 42, 54), and if they don’t get one, they could hold on to Albert and try and move him to right tackle next season.

Albert is targeting a deal worth $36 million over four seasons. He already signed his franchise tender for the 2013 season, which guarantees him $9.828 million unless he signs a long-term deal.

The Chiefs plan to take either offensive tackle Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher with the top pick, then have them play left tackle while shipping Albert out for the best deal they can get.


But that may not be the only blockbuster trade the Chiefs make prior to their first selction, as General Manager John Dorsey told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday that they are listening to offers for the #1-overall pick:

I got a few calls this morning and this afternoon. You have to explore every option, and that’s what we’re going to do.


The Cleveland Browns will be looing to add an impact receiver in this year’s draft, but may be able to add a quality player before the draft even begins:



The Newark-Star Ledger reports there’s been no movement regarding New Orleans Saints running back Chris Ivory and a trade to the New York Jets, but something could happen at the last minute.
