Albright on the Move?

I’d consider this to be very encouraging, should it come to pass. From Soccer America:
New England declined the option on defender Chris Albright‘s contract and may trade him to Philadelphia, his birthplace. Albright played just one game last year before suffering a torn left lateral meniscus that kept him out of league action the rest of the season. He earned $176,000 in 2009.
Kevin Alston, selected 10th overall out of Indiana University in last year’s draft, moved into Albright’s right-back position and his excellent play stamped him as one of the league’s best signings ($55,000 base salary, and guaranteed compensation of $104,000, including a Generation adidas bonus).
And, Soccer America isn’t the only one who thinks this will happen. Check out Kyle McCarthy’s post on Twitter:
So you want some Albright news? Revs did decline his option. Multiple teams interested in his services. Big pay cut looming.
Can’t keep a guy like Albright around when you have a better option in Kevin Alston.
