Dolphins set to reel in Albert

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Miami Dolphins need to rebuild an offensive line that was shattered by the alleged bullying controversy in 2013 and it appears that offensive tackle Branden Albert will be the starting point.

The Miami Herald and others are reporting that Albert is set to sign with the Dolphins once free agents are permitted to do so on Tuesday afternoon.

Albert has spent his entire six-year NFL career with the Kansas City Chiefs, starting 83 of the 85 games he has played. He was the 15th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft and earned his first Pro Bowl nod last year.

The Dolphins allowed a franchise-record 58 sacks last year. Miami lost two of its starting linemen when Jonathan Martin left the team before a Week 9 game because of the harassment issue that eventually led to Richie Incognito's suspension soon after.
