The Miami Dolphins have shown all offseason they're unafraid to spend to get what they want. Their pursuit of Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert fits with that new organizational thinking.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Dolphins are willing to meet Albert's asking price, that being a contract similar to the six-year, $53.4 million contract extension signed by Houston Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown last summer.

This stands in contrast to a recent report by Yahoo! Sports that stated the Dolphins and Albert wouldn't be a match unless his price "comes down significantly."
