Path to Lane Johnson could get easier for us:
Mike Jurecki of XTRA Phoenix is "hearing" the Cardinals "have discussed" trading for Chiefs LT Branden Albert. The Dolphins and Albert's agent held contract discussion over the weekend, but those talks have reportedly stalled. Insert the Cardinals. Arizona has been mentioned as a landing spot for one of the top offensive tackles in the draft at No. 7 overall, but there's a real possibility none of the three will be there. Kansas City wants a second-round pick in exchange for Albert -- the Cardinals hold the 38th pick. Albert also needs a new long-term contract, and he is said to be seeking upwards of $9 million annually.
Could also allow the Cards a shot to pick up an OLB and limit the choices we have there. I don't think the Bills would pick up LJ, the Jets are set with Turd Ferguson, and the Titans have Roos, who is really good, so I think they won't mind trading back even with him being available.
