02:36 PM ET 04.02 | Branden Albert is staying away from the Kansas City Chiefs until he has answers about his long-term future. The Chiefs used their franchise tag on the offensive tackle this offseason, signing him to a one-year, $9.828 million franchise tender, but he skipped the first day of voluntary workouts on Monday. In an appearance on NFL AM, Albert said, "Until I know my situation with certainty, I'm going to stay away." All indications is the he will not show up for any of the voluntary offseason workouts with the Chiefs until he gets some answers. Albert is concerned with the lack of security he has with a one-year contract and would like to reach a long-term deal. He is also unsure if he the Chiefs will trade him before the season starts or draft a left tackle with the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, forcing him to move to right tackle, which he does not want to do.

The Chiefs are probably looking to trade him, they would be wise to extend his contract and draft another blocker for Smith, they will have 3 years to deal with the draft pick!

I clicked on his profile and " asked him to be my friend" I also asked him for a loan. A one month advance.

The more you get paid, the more optional the work is.

Apparently.

Branden is speaking like a man with an overpaid agent and no leverage.

He's not in breach of his contract..............................yet.

This is nothing unusual for a player with a franchise tag.
