Dolphins sign free agent OL Albert
Report: Deal for 5 years, over $9M per year
DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins started free agency by addressing their biggest need.
According to reports, the team signed former Chiefs offensive tackle Branden Albert.
ESPN says Albert's deal is for 5 years for $9 million per year. $25 million of the deal is guaranteed.
The Dolphins offensive line was a mess last season as quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sacked a franchise record 58 times.
The unit also dealt with a public bullying scandal that involved linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito.
Albert was a trade target of the Dolphins before last season.
The Dolphins have also reportedly inked Nose Tackle Earl Mitchell.
That deal is reportedly 4 years for $16M, $9M guaranteed.
