    My take on this? GET RID OF THAT LT WANNABE AND DRAFT JOECKEL OR FISHER AND LET'S MOVE ON !!

    And if anyone's feelings are hurt by that -- good, then let's continue !!

    My thoughts exactly. After a 2-14 season you'd think the guy would be happy to have a roster spot, let alone a franchise tag.

    Albert is smart. He's getting $10M guaranteed this year. There is no sense in risking injury and potentially crippling his future earning ability. I don't blame him one bit.

    Is that so? You're forgetting that by signing the tender, they can trade him or CUT HIM, if they so choose. He's not guaranteed anything !! And the Chiefs have no obligation whatsoever to guarantee him a LT spot. If he stays, he'll play where they tell him to, or they can suspend him without pay for conduct detrimental to the team.

    Put away the damn cheerleader skirt and pom-poms regarding Albert and come to the realization that it's time to turn the page and move on.

    Umm, if they cut him it's still fully guaranteed. If they trade him then it would still be fully guaranteed provided he didn't negotiate a new contract with his new team.

    "If a player subject to a Franchise Player designation accepts the Required Tender, the resulting Player Contract shall be fully guaranteed if the player’s contract is terminated because of lack of comparative skill; as a result of an injury sustained in the performance of his services under his Player Contract; and/or due to a Club’s determination to create Room for Salary Cap purposes." - Source (Straight from the CBA)

    When did I ever say they shouldn't move on? I said nothing about what the Chiefs should do. I have no idea what you are trying to prove here...He's skipping VOLUNTARY workouts in a year where he is already guaranteed his salary. It would be absolutely stupid for him to risk getting injured in voluntary workouts and risk a potential contract like Bushrod got (5/$35.96M w/ $17.715M guaranteed). If you can't understand that, well get off your soapbox. Bowe did the exact same thing last year. Smart of him too.

    If the rest of you would risk a career ending injury in voluntary workouts, well, good for you. Give yourself a pat on the back and a gold star!

    I will never agree with this. There's risk in the game that's a given but saying this is like a police officer saying "you know I don't fell like going to that armed robbery call because there's to much risk" That officer knows the risk of the job when he starts so did Albert when he started. It's a part of his job. Other players are there he should be to. I said the same thing about Bowe last year. It's a selfish move. He's pretty much saying I'm more important then the team. I hate when players do this. Is there Risk yes. But at this time of the year that risk is VERY low. He's being paid a lot of money. He should be with the other guys that are there.

    So if a cop is told he can come in for voluntary work to help the police force out, but they won't pay him any extra and he has to add extra risk to his life by being there on duty, he's a loser for not showing up too, right?

    This mentality is so dumb. So is, "well they get a lot of money, so if they get hurt in voluntary workouts who cares b/c they still have a lot of money." Hey guys, you should risk a huge multi-year/multi-million dollar contract b/c you're already making $10M this year. Dumb dumb dumb.

    Next time your boss asks you to come in and work for free to help the company out, you'll jump right up and go, right? Of course you won't, but now you're being a hypocrite.

    Brian Waters never attended voluntary workouts. What a **** stain on this team!!!!

    We traded the best DE in the league to draft him, which was STUPID! And now stuck with a LT that is injury prone at that position. Move him, or trade him, and draft our future RT! Unless we have to have the salary money, I'd stick him at LT, and either watch him play well, or watch his free agency options free fall.

    You cant label him injury prone for one season he dealt with a back injury thats not serious or prolonging. It was just spasms and he has cleared his physical and if it was a conituning problem they wouldnt have tagged him. With that said i think we should trade him. Hes acting selfish and not a team player.
