Miami will move 2016 first-round pick Laremy Tunsil to left tackle to replace Albert.
It's potentially an interesting move because the 32-year-old Albert, who will be four years older than Beachum when the 2017 season begins, is at the back end of his career and is clearly not the long-term answer at the position. That's a big commitment for a player who hasn't played a 16-game season since 2011.
The Giants have over $30 million in cap space, and Albert's salary next year represents a road block to completing their offseason goals. At one point during the season, Joseph called out Williams' lack of effort.
Albert wearing blue next season is realistic; should it actually happen, expect some restructuring from one if not several veterans.
The report also mentioned tight end Julius Thomas as a potential player in the deal, considering his production in Denver came when Dolphins coach Adam Gase was offensive coordinator there.
He didn't play a full season in any of his three seasons with the Dolphins because of injuries, including a dislocated wrist last season that he had surgically repaired in November. Williams appeared in 13 games and finished with just 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Williams was a major disappointment for Miami after signing a two-year, $17 million contract last year. The Dolphins carried him on injured reserve all season, but the team has four proven starters - Byron Maxwell, Xavien Howard, Tony Lippett and Bobby McCain - presently on the roster. He earned two Pro Bowl nods while notching 53 sacks over six years, including five in just 5 games his final fall in Texas. With Albert gone and Tunsil moving outside, the Dolphins can address the vacancy at guard in free agency or the draft.
Williams recorded 97.5 sacks during his 11-year National Football League career. The Dolphins drafted him in the first round in 2016 so it was only natural.
