03:34 PM ET 04.01 | The Kansas City Chiefs began offseason team activities Monday, and offensive lineman Branden Albert was the only player missing. Albert has been a bit of a headache for the Chiefs this offseason. Kansas City placed the franchise tag on him March 4, and on March 22, the lineman signed his one-year, $9.82 million contract. After the Chiefs brought up the possibility of moving Albert from left tackle to right tackle, he expressed his displeasure with the potential change on Twitter. Since then, Kansas City has explored the idea of trading Albert. A five-year veteran out of Virginia, Albert has started 71 games for the Chiefs since the team selected him with the 15th-overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

You would think doing it just once would be enough.

OffTopic, but the 49ers just traded for Colt McCoy.

You either got class, or you don't.......he don't!

Do YOU go to work on optional days?

If you do you're wasting your time.

Fans are hypocrites.

Best thing to ever happen to Colt. Hope he can take advantage of actually having some talent around him.

Is there any reason you should hold Brandon Albert to a higher standard than you yourself maintain?

Lol!!

At the moment I am keeping an eye on events that are transpiring on the Korean peninsula. Publicized movements to date are B-2's flying over the country. F-22's being moved to Osan airbase from Japan, a huge sea based radar assembly moving closer, the U.S.S. McCain being deployed off the coast, China mobilizing ground troops and air assets near the North Korean border.....

Yeah, I've been following as well. I don't think Skippy has the nads to pull the trigger though. Just about everybody has more toys than he has. Hadn't heard about China mobilizing ground troops, don't like how that sounds.

Concerning the Chinese mobilizing troops. I think that was a given after the B2's flew over. It's a calculated development..

Yeah, I tend to agree. China does not want to get involved but given the relationship with PRK it has to put on a bit of a show. Interesting.....
