On Monday, about 12 hours before the 2014 NFL free agency period officially opens, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported that the Dolphins and left tackle Branden Albert had agreed to a deal that would pay him $10 million per year. We won't get absolute 100 percent confirmation of that deal until free agency begins at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
But if you've been Twitter sleuthing, Albert has given us another indication that he's taking his talents to South Beach (or thereabouts).
As pointed out by Bleacher Report's Marc Kohn, some of Albert's most recent Twitter follows are his apparent future teammates.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Lamar Miller, obviously, are already fixtures on Miami's squad, while safety Louis Delmas and the Dolphins agreed to a one-year deal with a maximum payout of $3.5 million.
So, until the Dolphins acknowledge the Albert signing, La Canfora and Albert's Twitter habits will have to be the sole indicators about Albert's next stop.
