Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said trading for Kansas City Chiefs franchised left tackle Branden Albert wasn't the right thing for his club during the draft.

But in an interview with the Miami Herald, Ireland cautions that the deal still could happen later on.

Asked why the deal wasn't right for the Dolphins, Ireland said, "Well, I'm not going into that because I'm not so sure it doesn't work it."

When pressed on the subject, Ireland left the door open for the possibility of a trade still getting done. What that sounds like, reading between the lines, is the Dolphins still have interest in Albert, but not at the Chiefs current asking price.
