The Kansas City Chiefs
are willing to listen to offers for left tackle Branden Albert
, but they have a price in mind for their franchise player.
The Chiefs want a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and a selection in 2014, ESPN reported Friday.
According to ESPN, trade discussions have taken place with the Miami Dolphins
and other teams.
The Chiefs also might invite other tackle candidates for a workout or draft an offensive tackle. Team officials visited Texas A&M on Friday to watch prospect Luke Joeckel
Albert, 28, led the Chiefs and ranked ninth in the NFL last season in pass-block efficiency despite missing three games because of a back injury.
After signing a contract tender Thursday, Albert would make $9.928 million next season. The Chiefs talked to the former first-round draft pick's agent about a long-term deal and also about the possibility of a trade.
"I want to know where I'm going, when I'm going, and I want some security," Albert told USA Today.
