According to a report from Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero, along with other media members, the Jacksonville Jaguars are interested in acquiring Albert from the Dolphins.
The team is "hopeful but not necessarily optimistic" that they will be able to trade Albert, according to Salguero. Sherman has two years, $22 million in base salary left on his existing deal; Talib is due $30 million over the next three.
It's potentially an interesting move because the 32-year-old Albert, who will be four years older than Beachum when the 2017 season begins, is at the back end of his career and is clearly not the long-term answer at the position. He allowed just four sacks in the 13 games he played in the regular season and playoffs despite playing with a ligament tear in his wrist for the second half of the season.
In protecting Goff, he is not so much an experiment as it would be to draft and develop a rookie - especially when the Rams do not have a first round pick.Robinson, meanwhile, is the most penalized player in the National Football League over the last couple years. Joseph can use Albert's veteran presence on the field and leadership in the locker room in his first season with the Broncos.
ME chefs, restaurants nominated for coveted James Beard Awards
Gabe Barker of Pizzeria Mercato in Carrboro was named a semifinalist for the James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year. Also, one Milwaukee restaurant is one of the semifinalists for the Outstanding Restaurateurs award.
The team has also waived cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. Scheduled to count $4.5 million against the Dolphins' salary cap, his release saves the Dolphins $4 million on their cap, with $500,000 in dead money left over.
The duo of Albert and Williams had dwindling performances in South Florida during the 2016 season. Albert is going to lose his job to Laremy Tunsil, and it seems like Williams has become less and less useful as time goes on. He spent last season on injured reserve after injuring his knee.
Williams, 32, will likely only receive one-year offers after a disappointing campaign. He barely made a splash, registering 1.5 sacks in just five starts.
The Dolphins get a head-start on free agency by trading for a big-name corner.
