Kansas City Chiefs tackle Branden Albert is on the trading block, and the team is looking for a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft as well as a pick in next year's draft, according to Adam Schefter.
The Chiefs placed their franchise tag on Albert, which means he is set to earn $9.8 million in 2013. But Kansas City may be headed for a cheaper solution, Arrowhead Pride believes, at left tackle by dealing Albert and selecting a top prospect at his position in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Albert, who has spent his entire career in Kansas City, was originally a first round selection by the Chiefs in 2008. Albert had an impact right off the bat, and in five seasons with the team, he has appeared in a total of 73 games, 71 of those as a starter.
