Nothing earth shattering, so didn't deserve its own thread. But a reminder of the importance of this week.

Thus, if neither player signs an extension in the next eight days, neither can sign a new deal until after the season is over.

Predictably, the agents for both players will be talking to the Broncos and Chiefs this week. The Chiefs and Albert’s representative have long planned to talk this week. The Denver Post reported on Sunday that the Broncos and Clady will talk this week.

I think the odds are higher that Albert re-signs this week, but nothing would surprise me.

If neither player signs by the deadline, I do not think it will be a terrible sign. Deals can easily get done after the season and before free agency starts next March.
