I’ve stayed off this topic for sometime now, mainly cause I didn’t want to post a bunch of curse words and spew hate… but I’ve given this some thought;
My first thought was get rid of him, if he doesn’t wanna play then get him outta here asap and give me the guy who’s gonna give 110% to the team.
My second thought was a little more spiteful, keep him on the roster, deactivated for game days and put him on IR as soon as he tries to skip practice with an “injury” and fine him every chance we get.
But here is my conclusion, as close to a Win Win situation as we are going to get.
Tell Albert that if he comes in now, keeps his mouth shut plays as hard as he can the rest of the season, then at the end of the season if he still wants out, we will get him a trade.
This way he keeps his money, he gets out of the 3-4 (albeit in a year) and hopefully we can get some value for him, if he truly gives it his all throughout the season and our defense dominates as we expect it to, we should be able to pull at least a 2nd rounder in the draft for him. 32
Million for two years of play and a second rounder is much easier to stomach than 32 Mil for one year and a big distraction for 3 more years.
Then explain the alternative (thought number 2).
