9. HATE: Branden Albert gets paid by Miami Dolphins

Miami needed to upgrade the offensive line. It's been well-documented. But is adding Branden Albert the right move? Nobody values offensive linemen more than Andy Reid -- and Reid immediately made his feelings clear about Albert when he walked in the door and drafted Eric Fisher. Yet, Miami gave him $47 million (with a reported $25 million in guarantees).

An article like this needs to be written the following year or two years from now.

What if Albert grades out as a top 5 tackle and helps Miami into the playoffs?

This is like grading a draft before the rookies even see the field.

I guess because NFL Personnel Guru Andy Reid (who inherited most of his team from Scott Pioli and then proceeded to choke with it in the playoffs) didn't want him, we must start to believe he is awful.

Andy Reid just let like 3 pieces of his starting OL walk away in free agency, and they werent that bad of a unit to begin with....

I dont put much weight into this argument. If Reid is such a OL guru, I don't think his intention was to blow up the entire unit in year 2 and start from scratch....... let alone, whiff on the top OL pick last year (Im not judging fisher yet, but of the 3 ot's in the draft last year, Fisher has delivered the least).

Adam Schein and Andy Reid both suck.

Reid is certainly not in Philbins class , that is for sure. We are killing it in free agency. For basically volunteering for the job on an interim basis, Hickey is staging a great team.

Don't say that yet. We still have the draft to deal with.

I'd trade Andy Reid for Philben any day of the week. That said, I think he made a mistake letting Albert go. While he isn't the best at his position, he is a good LT. Everyone has to overpay at that position, especially since the guy they drafted to take his place didn't perform well last year. (One thought about that, I don't think it is as easy to go from starting on the left side in college to the right side in the pros.)
