Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said two weeks ago he wants Le’Veon Bell to retire as a member of the Steelers.
“Why ruffle feathers when you don’t have to?” Albert told the Sun Sentinel. “It’s the business of the game. I honestly believe where I’m going to go is the right fit. It is going to be a surprise when (the terms) comes out.
“Where I’m going they put a lot of faith in me, and they know they are getting loyalty back,” Albert said. “My faith, me being a man of Christ, I know God is going to point me where he wants me to be.”
Albert — who signed a five-year, $47 million contract with the Dolphins in 2014 — has struggled with injuries during his time in Miami. The three-time Pro Bowler and first-round selection by the Chiefs in the 2008 NFL Draft never played a full 16-game schedule in three seasons with the team. He missed four starts in 2016.
Jackson will become a free agent this offseason, and it’s been speculated that the Redskins are going to let him sign with a different team. Only, Jackson would like to stay in Washington.
“I do want to still be here,” Jackson said, via Redskins.com. “My family and my house, I have everything here and I don’t want to be in a transaction and move. First things first, I do want to be here and hopefully we can make it work. But once again this is a business so things happen.
“I’m just really excited about the opportunity I have to sit and now the ball’s in my corner a little bit and see what we can do. I’m just excited and I’m going to let my agent care of all that. Ready to just sit back and whatever offers come in but obviously like I said I do want to be here.”
