Not only did that move allow Miami to save money and slide Laremy Tunsil into his natural position, but it appears to have spared the team from dealing with a contract dispute. Albert did not report to voluntary workouts in Jacksonville today because he is holding out for a new contract, according to NFL Network.
He has two years and $18.5 million left on the deal he originally signed with Miami.
Albert, 32, was beloved in the Dolphins’ locker room the last few years but has dealt with various injuries recently. He played 35 of a possible 48 games with Miami and hasn’t started 15 in a season since 2011.
