The Miami Dolphins are looking for a left tackle since Jake Long departed to the St. Louis Rams via free agency.

NFL.com is reporting that the team has an interest in Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert. The Chiefs have the No. 1 overall pick in next week's NFL Draft and are likely looking to draft a tackle.

Albert is a former first-round pick who has started 71 games in his five seasons in the league. SI.com reported yesterday that the Chiefs are willing to trade Albert for a high second-round pick. The Dolphins have two second-round selections in the draft, No. 42 and 54.
