    Makes sense to me.
    You hit the nail on the head.

    the reason they want to move Brandon Albert is they want to draft a Lt with there first pick and he said he considers himself a Lt and wants to play there, and not Rt.

    what that means Brandon Albert has been playing Lt his whole career and now when he looking for a long term contract he doesn't want to be paid Rt money but Lt money.
    The Chiefs are praying that someone will pay that price and they can regroup the pick they lost to 49ers for Alex Smith.

    I doubt anyone going to pay that price When a team can find cheaper option in the draft to play Lt. When it all said and done Brandon Albert is going to be Chiefs RT and Luke Joeckel will be their Lt.

    The Cleveland Browns have agreed to a deal with free agent cornerback Chris Owens, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

    Owens moves over to the Browns after having previously played for the Atlanta Falcons.

    Free agent OLB Victor Butler is currently taking a physical in Cleveland.
    It doesn't mean a deal is imminent, but one could be. Butler also took a physical during his Saints visit. The Browns' starting outside 'backer duo is set with Jabaal Sheard opposite Paul Kruger, but they are lacking for depth and (smartly) taking the approach that you can never have enough pass rushers.

    The Browns also signed Quintin Groves and have D'qwell Jackso. Either way there is an article that they didn't sign Butler and he is now visiting Philly who signed Connor Barwin and have Trent Cole and recent pick Vinny Curry. Come on Idzik let's get this guy in here!

    Victor Butler reportedly set to visit Philadelphia Eagles

    The New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns both failed to lock up free agent Victor Butler after putting the outside linebacker through a physical.

    Now a third team with a defense transitioning to the 3-4 scheme has come calling. The next stop on the Butler tour is Philadelphia to visit the Eagles, reports The Plain Dealer.

    A 25-year-old career backup with pass rushing ability and special teams experience, Butler has been a hot commodity in his first shot at free agency. He's also visited the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Following the signing of Connor Barwin, the Eagles would seem to be overloaded with outside linebackers. Trent Cole and Brandon Graham will make the switch from defensive end while 2012 second-rounder Vinny Curry provides valuable depth.

    Cole is not expected to be traded, but the new Eagles' regime could dangle the undersized Graham leading up to next month's NFL draft.

    On the other hand, the front office may just be stockpiling edge rushers for a rotation that will keep pace with new head coach Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense.

    Saw that Chaz Schilens is visiting the Titans- in '09 it was the Browns, last year it was the Rams, this year it's the Titans. I'm talking about the team that goes after all our former players.

    Nice pickup in New Orleans: Saints plan to sign Cowboys LB Victor Butler.


    Makes sense that he followed Rob to New Orleans, no surprise there.

    Eagles and Colts, trade partners, are at it again. Eagles traded FB Stanley Havili to Colts.

    Eagles acquire DE Clifton Geathers from Colts for FB Stanley Havili.

    Victor Butler's deal with the Saints is for 2yrs, but can void down to 1 yr based on playing time and production

    Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider
    In 2014, Victor Butler's deal voids. However, Saints have right of first refusal. Deal has a $100,000 workout bonus in 2014.

    Matt Flynn to Oakland.

    Jason La Canfora ‏@JasonLaCanfora 2m
    Sounds like Matt Flynn heading to Oakland via trade, and Carson Palmer will be on his way out (possibly to AZ). trying to nail down details

    Jason La Canfora ‏@JasonLaCanfora 2m
    If the Flynn to Oakland trade gets completed, as expected, look for Seattle to consider Tyler Thigpen as a back-up to Russell Wilson

    Former Falcons CB Brent Grimes reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Best remaining CB off the board.

    Does this mean the trade price for Revis just went up?
