It's gonna have to be some kind of awesome pro day.
That's the million dollar question...err...multi-million dollar question as it were. The rumor in KC is that Branden Albert isn't taking the "home town discount" and that he may be asking for a contract worth about $10 million/year or a little more. Now, there will be debate, if that is true, if he's worth that. Keep in mind, he did only allow 1 sack this year. Allowed one sack on a team that never held a lead until, literally, mid-way through the season. Meaning they were always behind and fighting uphill. I believe the sack he gave up was to John Abraham in the season opener against Atlanta. But, conversely, there is the injury concern as he missed a few games this year due to a back injury of some sort. Although for a couple of those games he missed he was actually in uniform and "could have" played in an emergecy. So the Branden Albert situation, as you can see, is very complex and not likely to be resolved for a while. But a lot hinges on what ultimately happens with him.
