REPORTS: OT Branden Albert To Sign With Fins

Posted By The Finsiders On March 11, 2014 @ 4:12 pm In Football | 13 Comments

Branden Albert Reports [1]Last season, it was apparent that the Miami Dolphins offensive line wasn’t up to par as the team allowed a franchise-record 58 sacks. So it appears that with one of the Fins first pieces of business in free agency, they’re doing everything they can to make sure the offensive line becomes a strength of the team and that their young franchise quarterback in Ryan Tannehill is protected.

According to multiple media reports stemming from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins have reportedly agreed to terms with free agent left tackle Branden Albert, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The 29 year-old out of Virginia has started 85 games over the course of his six-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs. He started in 13 games last season, missing three due to a knee injury. He has the ability to play both tackle positions, but has more recently been a blind-side protector and is expected to fill that role with the Dolphins.
