Draft week: Will Ireland panic on Branden Albert?

Jeff Ireland has generally not been one to panic throughout his tenure as the Dolphins general manager.

Once he realized that Chad Henne was not the answer as Miami's franchise quarterback, he didn't panic and pick Ryan Mallett in the 2011 draft. He didn't panic and make the deal for Kyle Orton later that summer. He didn't panic earlier this offseason and give cornerback Brent Grimes or tight end Dustin Keller multi-year deals. He didn't panic and fill an offensive line need by immediately committing to Eric Winston -- either last year or this year.

Indeed, the only Ireland move I can really think would even come close to being a panic move was the trade up for running back Daniel Thomas in the second round of the 2011 draft. The Dolphins desperately needed running back help after moving on from Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams and apparently feared losing out on Thomas so the move was made.

Despite that one apparent indiscretion, Ireland has been a fairly cool customer when it comes to acquiring players. (No, he doesn't always get the right one. No one does. But he doesn't get flustered about going after anyone, either). He certainly played it cool with left tackle Jake Long and that is one reason I've confirmed Long went to the St. Louis Rams.

Seems Long didn't think the Dolphins showed him enough love or respect, probably by the structure of their offers to him, to return to Miami.

And that brings us to the Branden Albert situation.

Albert is the Kansas City Chiefs left tackle who is on the trade block. And the Dolphins have shown considerable interest. But the interest has not been to the point where the Dolphins had offered the Chiefs a trade proposal as of this writing. The interest had not been to the point where the Dolphins had worked out a contract with Albert's agent as of this writing.

Ireland had so far played it cool. 

As of Sunday afternoon, this was still in the pending file.

But as this is officially the dawn of draft week, and all three parties -- the Chiefs, the Dolphins and the Albert camp -- would like a resolution to the issue that involves them all, the pressure on Ireland is about to mount exponentially. And pressure often causes folks to panic.

Because the draft is less than four days away, the Albert camp wants the Dolphins to get a deal done. The Chiefs want to bring this to some sort of conclusion because they'd like to know if Albert is going to be on their roster or if they're going to have an extra draft choice -- a fairly high one apparently -- for Albert.

And there is a certain amount of pressure on the Dolphins to figure out both draft compensation and a contract for Albert if that's the direction they're going to go. And if that's not the direction they're going to go, the Dolphins need to figure out how else they'll solve their left tackle vacancy that apparently they're not thrilled with Jonathan Martin filling.

So, yes, there is pressure. And this is about the time someone might panic.

Will it be Ireland?

He's the most likely choice of the three parties involved.

Albert's camp doesn't have to panic. They've got a signed franchise tag they're holding which guarantees the player $9.8 million in 2013. Yes, they want a multi-year deal. But are they going to cave to get that done?

Absolutely not. Indeed, the Albert camp believes it is working from a position of strength. They have a guaranteed one-year deal. They have a player that can hit the free agent market next year and get major bucks because it's unlikely the Chiefs would franchise him again at 120 percent of this year's cap value. They also have a suitor on the line for a multi-year deal. So there is not real timing pressure on them.

And that's why I'm told Albert wants to get paid. He wants a contract that is better than the four-year, $34 million deal with $16 million guaranteed the Rams gave Jake Long.

Yes, Branden Albert expects to get a better deal from the Dolphins than Jake Long ultimately believed the Dolphins were offering him. Now, one can play with the numbers. It's possible the Dolphins' offer to Long might have been higher than the Rams' but was structured in such a way as to make it easy to get rid of him after one year if he was injured again.

But on the face, Albert wants to do better than the deal Long thought was the best one on the table.

And they're not under undo pressure.

The Chiefs are playing it coy, too. They've not giving Miami permission to speak with Albert personally or give him a physical until they have a signficant trade offer on the table. And as of this writing, that was not yet the case.

They can argue they'll draft as planned and simply keep Albert and there will be opportunities to trade him later. Of course, we know this is posturing. The Chiefs want the draft pick compensation for Albert by Friday the latest. And if they don't get it by then, they're losing the maximum benefit of trading him. But I'm simply telling you what they might be pitching as a stance.

Ireland and the Dolphins?

They seem more desperate. They don't have a left tackle. The veil of using Martin as the answer has been removed. That's not what the team wants. That would only be the last resort move.

They aren't going to ransom their entire draft to trade up for Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher as those two left tackles might go No. 1 and No. 2 when the draft begins Thursday. They're not in love with Lane Johnson enough to mortgage a signficant part of their draft to trade up for him. (Maybe if he drops to them, they go with him. But trade up for him? Not in the plans as of today).

So what's left? Pick the fourth-best left tackle and hope?

It's a time for lesser men to panic because there are not wonderful options.

But this is my advice to Jeff Ireland:

Do you. Be yourself. Do not panic.

Paying Branden Albert -- a good but not great left tackle -- like he's an elite left tackle is not a palatable move to begin with. And paying a 2013 second- or third-round pick to Kansas City for the privilege makes it less appealing.

So hold fast.

Offer a 2014 second-rounder instead of 2013.

If it must be a 2013 pick, make absolutely sure that it's the second of Miami's two second-rounders (Nos. 42 and 54) and make sure that a trade down from No. 12 in the first round is available so you can regain that extra pick to mitigate the sting of trading for Albert.

(That likely means waiting until Thursday because very few teams will be willing to make a pre-draft trade for the No. 12 overall selection before then). 

If the Chiefs don't want to budge, call their bluff. Seriously. What are they going to do after picking Joeckel? They have to trade Albert. So wait them out.

If Thursday comes an goes and Friday comes and goes, Braden Albert will still be on the trade block. And then the pressure on K.C. will indeed mount. They're not going to waive the guy. Make the trade for a '14 pick. Give them that second-rounder, tell them they beat you up, shake their hand and call it a day -- all the while knowing they didn't win because they didn't take your current picks.

Remember Jimmy Johnson's old axiom: A second-rounder next year is like giving up a third-rounder this year because experience and maturity will likely cause the third-rounder to produce faster and more. So giving up a second next year for Albert is more of a bargain for Miami.

That strategy would give the team Albert this year, plus its full complement of draft picks this year. And that 2014 pick you trade away might be a lower selection anyway if your moves this year pay the kind of dividends you expect and you're in the playoffs.

Does waiting out K.C. come with risk?

Of course it does. Maybe another team jumps into the picture. Maybe the Chiefs rethink their strategy and keep Albert.

But those risks seem marginal. Albert's been on the market for a while and no one else has stepped up. And Albert has made it known to the Chiefs he's dead set against playing right tackle so he's causing them some pressure on that front.

Look, this deal could be done by Monday night or Tuesday if Jeff Ireland panics. Yes, he'd immediately have the solution to his left tackle issue. But the move would seem unthoughtful in the wake of losing Jake Long because the cost would be higher on multiple fronts (trade compensation as well as big contract compensation to the player).

Or ...

Ireland could strap his belt a notch tighter and hold his breath. He could wait out the Chiefs and the chances he'd get Albert could diminish. There's uncertainty there admittedly.

But sometimes testing that uncertainty is better than being the guy that panics.

ARMANDO,


OUR GARAGE MANAGER NEVER PANICK,THAT'S WHY WE R IN THE CELLAR ,,,,

I think we'll be fine with Martin at LT. Folks forget he's 22 and had only 4 games at LT. He'll bulk up in the off-season and will handle NFL rushers better.

The kid handled well in college what are now 1st rd DEs (Dion Jordan, Nick Perry, kid from UCLA which I forget his name). He's smart and knows how to play the game...

And before we bring up a select number of plays where he did struggle; think about some terrible of plays Jake Long had as well. Or Albert. Or McKinnie (guy has a good off-season so we forget all the other years). It's even ludicrous to suggest that we'll be better off with some 2nd 3rd or even 4th Rd prospects in this year over someone who had in some lists a 1st Rd grade. I can't see how those guys will be better than Martin in the long term.

And if K Long will be better than Martin because of his pedigree, then we should draft Aaron's little brother as our QB and trade T Hill. Kid has the name and should be better...

JRS, well said and totally agreed. Love our team but I also felt the same way about the old logo. It WAS pretty cartoonish when you think about it.

I like the new one a lot better and think it won't even be an issue with people once they are used to seeing it. Cleaner and leaner is how I'd describe it.

ALoco,

Just yesterday you said there was nothing wrong with YG being a H O M O.

Now today you are condemning whole countries, almost a whole continent because of it?

Talk about going "Both Ways". You just busted yourself talking out both sides of your mouth.

To top it all off, and in response to your hypocritical post above:

I'm SURE you'll NEVER admit to being wrong.

You Sir just **PROVED** that you are both a **Troll** and a **Joke**
=====================================================

Now admit you are wrong and apologize to all the good posters here. Then I will THINK about forgiving you.

ValFvckingHalla to you, you Half-Wit!!!!

Odin,

As Even You Can Attest Every Year That Goes By Without R. Mallett Playing. Is 1 More Year Closer To Bust.

One Thing People Forget Is R. Mallett Left Michigan Because He Couldn't Beat C. Henne And Then D. Robinson.

R. Mallett Wasn't A Winner In College.

And R. Mallett Being A 3rd Rounder He Can Still Be Called A Bust. The 3rd Round Is Still The Top Half Of The Draft.

Odin, I Might Be A Year Early. But Are We Still Going To Be Talking About R. Malletts Potential Next Season?

And Like You Said He Is Athletically Deficient. Add That He Has To Follow Brady Which He Won't Because Brady Just Resigned. But I Just Don't See A Team Wasting A Pick On R. Mallett Or Him Starting For Somebody.

That To Me Is A Bust. A 3rd Round Pick QB, That Sat 3-4 Years Behind Brady And Can't Even Start For Another Team.

wont be fine with martin, luckily we will get albert once his price comes down

ODIN,
I WAS TALKING FACTS,NOT OPINION ...............


YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO READ THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE VIKING MAN ,,,,

To draw any conclusions about Mallet, or any other player for that matter, without a minimum of a half season of starts is nothing but biased guesswork.

One thing we do know about Mallet, he IS still on the team. That says something. How much, nobody knows.

Let's not pretend we know things we can't possibly have any information about.

HOWEVER.....you HAVE to be SMARTER than to use words I clearly didn't.....even with your trick of OMITTING where my post would have been signed in hopes that you can trick others into thinking our words run together...how SLOPPY...I mean convenient of you.....

Posted by: Kris | April 22, 2013 at 05:36 PM

I Used Your Statement.

You Said That You Will Still Pick Mallett In The First.

You Can Not Be Serious.

DASHI,


IN THE PATS BOOK ,THE MORE YOU SIT AND WATCH ,THE MORE EITE YOU WILL BECOME...

ASK BRADY
OR

HOYER
OR ASK
BROWN ..

Dashi,

Let me spell it out for you in Sesame Street terms.

By your own argument, Aaron Rodgers was a bust after 3 years of doing nothing behind SB Winner HOF'r Farve.

Your argument does not apply to reality.

Dusty,
Why is Albert that much better? KC was one of the favorite teams coming into the season and they were awful. Their offense was supposed to be great with Bowe, Charles and , yes, Albert but still were terrible. The few games I saw from them I saw Cassell getting killed and running for his life with Albert being not great. An he's injured? No thanks

Arturo

albert isnt injured. albert gave up one sack last year. he is dominate as a pass blocker. and avg as run blocker. hes much much better than long

But I Just Don't See A Team Wasting A Pick On R. Mallett Or Him Starting For Somebody.

Well just because YOU DON'T SEE IT, doesn't mean it won't happen.

Remember, you didn't see Long not accepting Ireland's terms either.

It is easy to trick yourself into thinking you are 95% right when you forget all the times you are wrong.

And as was already pointed out, Mallet is sitting behind one of the all time greatest QB's in history. I don't think any QB would have gotten off the bench while Brady has been still playing at HOF level.

Dashi fails to acknowledge this obvious point. Mallet isn't sitting behind Henne.

What About If Mallett Doesn't Even See Half A Season Of Work.

He Should At Least See Some Preseason Work.

If He Had Value, Teams Would Be Knocking Down The Patriots Door. This Is A Weak Draft Class. Wouldn't You Trade At Least A 4th For A Good Young QB With 3 Years In The League. Sitting Behind Brady.

Heck AJ Feeley And K. Kolb Were 2nd Rounders.

Were Worth 2nd Rounders

Three little kittens they lost their mittens, and they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, we sadly fear that we have lost our mittens."
"What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
"Meeow, meeow, meeow, now we shall have no pie."
The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, see here, see here
For we have found our mittens."
"Put on your mittens, you silly kittens
And you shall have some pie"
"Meeow, meeow, meeow,
Now let us have some pie."
The three little kittens put on their mittens
And soon ate up the pie,
"Oh mother dear, we greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens."
"What! soiled you mittens, you naughty kittens!"

DASHI HAS NO SHAME...............


HE DOESN'T KNOW THE REAL FOOTBALL..

KEENAN ALLEN IS BETTER THAN TAYVON AUSTIN.

WHICH WOULD MADE DOLPHINS OFFENSE UNSTOPABLE

BRANDON ALBERT IS FORCING TRADE. TOLD CHIEFS TO DRADE FOR WHAT EVER.

NO NEED TO GIVE 2nd PICK...

HONEY BADGER IS A BALL HAWK..WE HAVE NONE IN OUR SECONDARY.

Patterson can cover though, Reshad Jones, good but not great, but still young.


I like the new one a lot better and think it won't even be an issue with people once they are used to seeing it. Cleaner and leaner is how I'd describe it.

==================================================

I'm already used to it. I don't care if they wear Black and Gold uni's either.

I'll like it just FINE......when the start WINNING!

ALOKO WHAT KIND OF KOLONE YOU WARE? DO IT SMELS GODE? WHAT KIND SOPE YOU EAT FOR DINER??

DD,

I read some of your comments today about 'LT's getting paid'. While I agree with you, that doesn't mean we have to be the ones paying it. Where is it written that your LT needs to make $8-9 million a year for you to be successful?

What we're talking about is whether it's better for the team to pay a guy on his second contract $8-9 million a year or whether they'd be better to go in a different direction, whether that be getting one of the top 3 in this draft or some other solution.

Respectfully, I'd saying trading for and signing Albert to a large contract should be the LAST option we look at and not the first. I still don't believe this is the option Ireland picks and until it happens I will continue to hold onto that opinion.

FANS LIKE CRAIG M HAVE PUT US IN THE CELLAR FOR LAST CENTURY ,,,,,,,

BUT,THE FAILURE WILL BE YOURS ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


Q,,,,,,, WHEN DID YOU DROPOUT FROM SCHOOL ?


Put our picks and money predominantly into playmakers. #1 Eifert, #2 Lacy - at that point we have good skill players across the board. Use the second #2 and the first #3 to strengthen the OL. People are in general pleased with Martin and he was the fourth tackle taken and this draft has better OL talent than last year. Subsequent picks go to CB, Safety and BAP. We do not need to bring in a player far inferior in potential to Long for the same money as long plus losing a draft pick.

Dashi,

I won't argue with a word you said.

I didn't like Mallett coming out and I think he was drafted into the worst possible scenario.

Regardless of my Opinion, I think he's DOOMED for as long as he remains in New England.

Great article Mando;but,I wish I could say I had faith in Ireland's draft prowess.Well,I can't based on his track record.Hope this weekend turns out better than previous drafts.Fins up!


Let's not pretend we know things we can't possibly have any information about.

So according to you and your hypothesis, the same applies to Egnew.......?

dusty, tell us again Albert is a done deal and then mock those that question it.

ODIN,

WHEN HE TALKS (( DOOMED )) ,HE SPEAKS AS A DOLPHINS FAN .

You will spend eternity screaming in the eternal flames of Hell for your sins against GOD!

ALOCO,

HUH? How the Hell do you take that from my comments? Have some one read it for you and explain....please. You're obviously not capable of reading plain English.

Albert will never ever be a Dolphin!! So why even speak of it.

There is a lot of competition to to had at right tackle and right guard.

Dee Millner will never slip to Miami even if these so called experts think he is gonna fall!!!

If he is there at 12, it will be the faster card to the podium in history!!!


ODIN,

So I see you're opting for the spin move!

Facts are facts Bro, you said so yourself.

You NEED my Forgiveness, so just admit it and apologize!

CRAIG M.

I READ YOU POST AND IT'S VERY CLEAR ,THAT YOU LIKE PLAYERS BAESED ON THEIR MONEY DEMANDS AND NOT THEIR VALUE FOR YOUR TEAM AND YOUR URGENT NEED TO PROTECT OUR NEW QB .......

NOW,OUR GARAGE MANAGER SHOULD SIGN ALERT TO MAKE SURE ALL HIS 90 MILLION SIGING OF WALLACE AND FEW OTHERS DOESN'T GO DOWN THE DRAIN.......


So according to you and your hypothesis, the same applies to Egnew.......?

Posted by: odinseye | April 22, 2013 at 06:41 PM


We know a few things about Egnew. The OC said he'd kick him off the team if he was GM. He couldn't get in the rotation when the competition was a very mediocre Fasano.

As Kris pointed out, there is no comparison between this and sitting behind Brady.

Still, I reserve judgement on Egnew. he is still on the team for a reason too, and if he is still here come opening day, I'll expect he's earned it.

If Human Sacrifice were still allowed today, I can see all Bostonians offering up ALoco to The Mighty Odin.

Unfortunately for them, The Mighty Odin would be more pleased with a Goat or a Pig!

Valhalla!!!!

CRAIG M....


SO OUR GARAGE MANAGER SIGNS WALLACS FOR 65 MILLION AND HARTLINE FOR MORE MILLIONS ,THEN HE CAN'T SIGN THE MOST IMPORTANT PLAYER ON THE TEAM ............

TO DRAFT UNKOWN DRFAT PLAYER HOPING ,HE WILL BE A HIT ,THEN WE WILL BE IN THE CELLAR AGAIN,,,,,,

ODIN,

TELL US ONE GOOD THING THE KILLERS VIKINGS DID IN THEIR TIME TO IMPROVE HUMANITY ?


Still, I reserve judgement on Egnew. he is still on the team for a reason too, and if he is still here come opening day, I'll expect he's earned it.


Posted by: Plain and Simple | April 22, 2013 at 06:51 PM
=====================================================

Yep, I agree totally.

I would reserve judgment on both Mallett and Egnew. There's just not enough known about either under live fire.

Also, I agree that the comparison is a poor one.

For the record: I **HOPE** Egnew suddenly "Gets It", comes out the gate swinging and tuns into the next Kellen Winslow Sr.

ALoco,

Don't twist my words.

This isn't fantasy football. You don't win any prizes for having the most, expensive guys on the roster. It's about getting the best team you can, while still abiding to the salary cap.

Mark my words....if the 'Phins make this trade for Albert and pay him the money he's looking for, some good player will get chopped in a year or two because we don't have the funds to keep him. It's a dumb move!

The two most immature and juvenile posters here are:

Sorry, not even a nice try. You just got busted talking out both sides of your mouth and all you can do is TRY to change the subject?

Dude...........

Just admit it and BEG for forgiveness.

Otherwise you're just SPINNING and TWISTING in the Wind!

CRAIG,

ARE YOU SAYING WHEN OUR GARAGE MANAGER SIGNED WALLACE FOR 65 MILLIN AND HARTLINE,DIDN'T THINK OF WHAT YOU JUST WROTE @ 7;00 PM ?

I THINK A GM THINKS THE COMPLETE PICTURE FOR A TEAM AND HOW TO PROTECT OUR NEW QB AND SIGN THE BEST KEY PLAYERS FOR A TEAM AND NOT OPERATE THE TEAM AS AUTO SHOP REPAIRS .

WHAT WIND,ODIN ?


LIFE
IS
SHORT .TO CHANGE SUBJECTS .................

Ireland is slowly turning into Clint Eastwood. He said before the season he had a plan. It sure as hell looks that way. I won't question the LT situation. I'm not going to doubt a GM on fire. There is just no more buzz about Albert. Ireland makes plans that have more than more than one option. That is what you do when you devote all your time to one single thing. Until he proves us wrong, I'm going with his word.

ALoco,

There's not ONE solution to this problem. There's many. I happen to think trading a second and then shelling out $8-9 million a year on a long-term deal isn't the best way to go about this. Because I'm not into signing Albert doesn't mean I'm ignoring or undervaluing the importance of a LT.

AGAIN....don't twist my words.

CRAIG M.


I AM NOT TWISTING YOUR WORDS ,I AM JUST SAYING THE MENTALITY OF WHICH ,PUT IN THE CELLAR FOR THE LAST CENTURY ISN'T WORKING....

BETTER
SIGN A PROVEN LT AND START GIVE THE FANS A REASON TO SMILE........

PUT US

ALoco,

The REST of us ALL KNOW that the Vikings were the FIRST to successfully defeat the Evil Roman Catholics.

We sent them packing and showed the rest of the world that EVIL can be defeated. We only TOOK BACK what they themselves had STOLEN from the Commoners and Peasants, under the guise of Christianity-LOL!

Unlike the French who welcomed Hitler without resistance, and gave all their Good Women FREELY to the Nazi's and begged and waited for The Americans to SAVE THEM AGAIN!

Sad but TRUE-ROTFLMFAO!

Now once AGAIN: Beg for Forgiveness and Salvation,

Valhalla!!!!

Thinking about what somebody said up there about Long, why on Earth did he not stay in Miami if we are going to use a zone-blocking scheme which requires less wear and tear than the drive-blocking one? Makes no sense for him.

Ireland is not going to pay Albert more than his pride and joy Long, AND give up a second round pick as well. No way, that would hurt his pride far too much. Judge the results of his actions come mid season.

Nobody knows wth is going on. Not even Mel Kiper.

OK ALoco. You win....I'm tired of trying to explain to you what I'm saying.

Have a good night.

ODIN,

(( EVIL ROMAN CATHOLICS ))...........

VERY CLEAR YOU R ANTI RELIGION ))..........


AGREE THEY WERE AFTER PEOPLE'S MONEY ,AS THE VIKINGS WHO STOLE,KILLED AND RAPPED ...

TO BE TRUTHFUL,THEY R ALL EVIL ....THAT'S THE NATURE OF A POWER IN THE PAST..

Oscar, you know better than to take the pundits opinions over your own. Ireland is on record saying Long is a great LT in any scheme on any team. The media hypes all this WCO and zone blocking without much of a clue as to how things really work.
