King believes that the team could be listening to offers for left tackle Branden Albert, whom the Chiefs retained with their franchise tag two weeks ago. Should Kansas City feel like a long-term contract isn't going to happen, a trade would make plenty of sense for a team with the No. 1 overall pick and no glaring needs at the moment.
The Chiefs traded their second-round pick earlier in the year for quarterback Alex Smith, so perhaps Kansas City could try to acquire a similar selection for Albert should the right team come along with an offer. However, the Chiefs also appear to be a team quickly on the rise, making it hard to suggest a rookie left tackle makes a ton of sense.
Should general manager John Dorsey feel Albert is asking for way too much money or if he believes that Albert will have chronic back issues after suffering back injuries last season, then the trade possibilities open up. Otherwise, it's likely Albert stays in the barbecue capital of the world.
