Albert played the 2013 on a franchise tag, and had a career year in his sixth season with the Chiefs. Albert has been a solid left tackle for the last few seasons, and in Andy Reid’s offense, he proved extremely valuable as both a run and pass blocker. He was the best linemen on one of the league’s most efficient offenses this past year.

That being said, don’t expect Albert to be in Kansas City next season. The Chiefs didn’t draft Eric Fisher first overall last season to be a right tackle. Despite Fisher’s rookie woes, I believe that the Chiefs staff will do their best to mold him into the franchise left tackle that he’s cut out to be. With huge holes on the blind side in Miami and Arizona, expect Albert to get a big, four-year deal from one of those teams.
