In the end. Branden Albert needs to cash his check and
. Whining on Twitter is something I would expect from a drama queen like TO. Not a professional like B. Albert.
You have a point to a certain extent. Yes Albert will make a crap ton playing under the Tag, but if he switches to RT he will be costing himself money long term. I think people are glossing over this fact far too much. It's the same fight T. Suggs had when they tried to tag him as a DE instead of an OLB.
There isn't a person on this forum that would be willing to take what amounts to a demotion without bitching about it.
