Branden Albert Headshot

Albert will visit the Jaguars on Monday ahead of a potential trade for tight end Julius Thomas, reports.

Albert's meeting with the Jaguars comes after the Dolphins made their intention to either trade or cut him this offseason known. With the Jaguars similarly known to be moving on from left tackle Kelvin Beachum, Albert represents a potential upgrade at that position, and exchanging him for the underwhelming Thomas would fill Miami's need at tight end. Whether that deal comes to fruition remains to be seen, but Albert's visit Monday could prove instrumental in determining the fate of both players this offseason.

Julius Thomas Headshot

Thomas could join the Dolphins in a trade for offensive tackle Branden Albert, who is visiting the Jaguars on Monday, reports.

Thomas has fallen flat of expectations since signing a five-year, $46 million contract with the Jaguars in 2015, but with the Dolphins committed to moving on from Albert and his hefty salary, and the Jaguars in need of a new left tackle, a potential swap seems to make sense for both parties. Considering both Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims are hitting the free-agent market, acquiring Thomas would fill Miami's need at tight end, and would also reunite him with coach Adam Gase, who Thomas thrived under while Gase served as his offensive coordinator with the Broncos in 2014. While that change of scenery could help Thomas' fantasy stock, his proposed move to the Dolphins could be contingent on how Albert's visit with the Jaguars goes Monday, making the situation worthwhile to monitor.
