    Work with Alberts cousin.

    Found out a few weeks ago that one of my coworkers is Branden Alberts cousins. After talking to him today he is pretty sure Albert will be a Dolphin this week. Doesn't get much more of a reliable source then family.

    That may be the WORST source in the history of sources. Albert has no idea where he will be this week, so anything his long lost cousin may think is absolutely useless. Now if Albert told his agent that he would be willing to play for less than market value to come home and play for the fins, it might be possible, but if that were the case he wouldn't be asking for 9 mil per.

    He has said repeatedly that he is a selfish person and is going to go where the money is. Which usually tells you once he gets his money he will lose his motivation to be the best he can be. It is no accident that he had his best year in his contract year. Once he gets paid he will go back to being the 25th ranked LT, or worse.

    No offense, but your source is slightly less reliable as Madame Zora

    I don't think a long lost cousin would find out about the shooting down there before ESPN, and i don't think a long lost cousin would fly out and spend a week with him every summer.

    So what did he actually say that gave you the impression that he will be a Dolphin soon?

    You guys kill me with calling players selfish. So Albert is selfish for wanting to get paid, but Wallace wasn't? Players ask for what they think they're worth and the teams can either agree or disagree.

    NO NO, it wasn't me calling him selfish. HE called HIMSELF selfish. Said in the interview that he described HIMSELF as being a selfish sort of person, that wanted a long term contract, did NOT want to play RT or guard, and had given a deadline as to when he had to know where he was going to end up. HIS WORDS!!!
