Dolphins will meet Branden Albert contract demands, according to report

The Miami Dolphins are prepared to meet the contract demands of offensive tackle Branden Albert, for whom they are looking to trade before this week's NFL Draft.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the Dolphins are willing to give Albert a similar contract  to the six-year, $53.4 million extension that was signed by Houston Texans tackle Duane Brown last year.

That stands in contrast to a report Sunday that said the deal was on the verge of falling apart unless Albert lowered his demands. The Dolphins refused to match a deal the St. Louis Rams gave to tackle Jake Long, which pays about $8.5 million per season.

Albert, 28, has signed a franchise tender worth $9.82 million next season, but he has not participated in the Chiefs’ voluntary offseason program. The Chiefs are looking for a second-round pick as compensation in a potential trade, and the Dolphins have two.
