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.
What if your employer asked you to move to a new position, where you will be paid the same, but it will severely hinder your advancement in the future, and thus, your future earnings?
In Albert's case, if he hits FA, he may be paid RT money instead of LT money, or he'll have to hope a team will pay him LT money and go from LT-->RT-->LT. That's not fair to the player.
