Complete bullshit.

The only one who will eventually start to care is Fisher, but he has several years before he has to worry about that.


How many tackles in the NFL are "playing at a high level" at age 33 or 34? Besides that, Albert is barely above average at age 28 and he'll be 29 mid-season.

Based on his actions this off-season, I seriously doubt that he'll go for a backloaded contract, unless he receives $24 million or more guaranteed.

And then he's still on the books in 2015.
