    Would you make this trade

    KC's Branden Albert for our #17?

    Albert is rumored to be leaving KC. Miami is the likely destination. Would you try to step in and get him for our LT?

    I think that given the lack of elite talent in this draft I would jump at this trade.

    I'd make the trade on talent, but the money is a killer.

    Agree, the contract would be too much. Dolphins reportedly only giving a 2nd. Maybe that's why talks are ongoing.

    You could have had Jake Long for roughly the same money and no draft compensation in free agency. We kicked those tires apparently, but our cap situation would not allow it, so this is certainly way out of the realm of possibility.

    I'd bring back Max again and let someone develop.

    I wouldn't make that trade. We have two highly drafted Ts on the team now. We need to let them play...even if there are growing pains.
