The Richie Incognito bullying scandal has been detrimental to Miami in so many ways but it seems there are some Dolphins winners from the situation.

Former Kansas City Chiefs tackle Branden Albert is on the verge of joining the Dolphins for a whopping $10 million per season as they look to repair their offensive line.

The bullying scandal devastated the roster of the AFC East side, with both Incognito and victim Jonathan Martin not finishing the 2013 season.

Martin may still yet return but Incognito definitely won't.

However, there are some positives for certain players, with Albert earning his big pay day as a result of the turmoil.

NFL insider Jason La Canfora explained via Twitter today.

"When the Dolphins announce their deal with T Branden Albert tomorrow, he will end up getting $10M/season. Quite a haul," La Canfora posted.

The Dolphins definitely need as much help as they can get on the offensive side of the ball because of their inability to protect the quarterback in 2013.

Ryan Tannehill was sacked a total of 47 times last season and Albert has been brought in to help stem that tide.
