Branden Albert expected at Chiefs minicamp
Branden Albert will waste no time showing up for the Kansas City Chiefs' offseason workouts. Head coach Andy Reid said that he expects Albert to show up to minicamp Monday for the first voluntary sessions for veterans beginning Tuesday, according to the SB Nation blog Arrowhead Pride.
Albert has signed the team's franchise tender, and is expected to be the Chiefs' starting left tackle this season. The team took Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, but he is currently penciled in as the starter at right tackle.
The Chiefs envision Fisher as their left tackle of the future, but in the mean time they apparently feel comfortable letting him spend a season getting his feet wet on the right side. They reportedly drafted Fisher, in part, because they felt he would be a better fit for the right side than No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel.
