I like Albert a great deal, but there are risks with him. I know his back has been given clearance, but running around in a physical is a lot different than the grind he'll be facing week in and week out during the season and over the course of the deal.
If he decides to go out into free agency and someone else wants to sign him, does he have to give us an option to match it etc?
