Is Branden Albert a fit for Giants if cut by Dolphins?

Albert will enter his 10th season in 2017 and fourth with the Dolphins, but Miami selected Laremy Tunsil with its first-round pick past year.

The 32-year-old was drafted in 2008 by the Kansas City Chiefs as a 15th overall pick. That's a big commitment for a player who hasn't played a 16-game season since 2011. He mostly played guard in Miami this season with the exception of a few spot starts at left tackle, but he has the experience of playing the premier position on the O-line.

The Giants have over $30 million in cap space, and Albert's salary next year represents a road block to completing their offseason goals. Some have worked out tremendously for at least one season (Corey Dillon, Randy Moss), while others (Albert Haynesworth, Chad Ochocinco) delivered little to no value. It's his natural position and Miami knew that he would eventually replace Albert on the left outside. Thursday morning. It had been reported that the Dolphins even told Albert that he was cut.

So, as a way to see if they could get something in return for the pass protector, the Dolphins decided against releasing him immediately.

Rebels will send the same delegation to Thursday's talks, headed by Mohammad Alloush of the Islam Army rebel group. Jordan will also be represented by a "high-level delegation", government spokesman Mohamed Momani said.

The report also mentioned tight end Julius Thomas as a potential player in the deal, considering his production in Denver came when Dolphins coach Adam Gase was offensive coordinator there. Right out of the gates last season, the Dolphins struggled with consistency on the offensive line.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Jaguars are interested in Albert, though it's unclear if the interest is mutual. Buffalo Bills. He lost his starting job at defensive end in October and appeared in 13 games (five starts) for Miami in 2016. The Dolphins also didn't really miss much of a beat in the regular season when Matt Moore took over for an injured Tannehill. Last season he was limited to nine games (five starts) because of a calf injury.

He has 206 tackles and 5.5 sacks in his career.
