Kansas City was shopping Albert prior to the 2013 NFL Draft, seeking a second-round draft pick in return. Armed with two second-round picks and a need at left tackle, the Dolphins were linked to Albert in trade rumors -- and indeed discussed a trade with the Chiefs.
Miami general manager Jeff Ireland opted against using one of his picks to acquire Albert, and instead packaged one of Miami's two second-round picks with the No. 12 overall pick to acquire the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, to select Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan.
The Chiefs used the franchise tag on Albert earlier this offseason, preventing him from reaching free agency. A team that trades for Albert will undoubtedly attempt to sign the left tackle to a long-term deal, but Albert is seeking a significant payday -- which is another hindrance in trade talks.
Kansas City is believed to want a 2014 second-round pick in exchange for Albert if they trade him. The Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers are potential destinations for Kansas City's left tackle.
