PFT take on Albert and his twitter account

Branden Albert bids farewell to Twitter

Posted by Mike Florio on March 7, 2013, 8:58 AM EST

It came with much less fanfare than Arian Foster’s recent exit from the 140-character social media platform. But in the end the result was the same.

Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert has abandoned Twitter.

The pulling of the plug came in the hours after Albert expressed defiance regarding the possibility of moving to right tackle, following the unexpected release of starter Eric Winston.

Starting with “nope” regarding the possibility of moving to “you damn right” regarding his reluctance to be anything other than a left tackle, Albert drew a clear, deep line in the sand.

Thus, as of this posting, and as several of you have pointed out, Albert’s page is completely gone.

Chances are that Albert’s agent contacted the player with something along the lines of “what in the hell are you doing?” before explaining that Albert was setting the stage for either looking weak by later going along with whatever the coaching staff tells him to do or engaging in conduct detrimental to the team by refusing to follow orders.

There’s also a chance that, if Albert doesn’t sign his one-year franchise tender, the Chiefs will eventually rescind it. Coach Andy Reid did that twice in Philly, with defensive tackle Corey Simon in 2005 and linebacker Jeremiah Trotter three years before that. If the tag is removed at any time after the draft, Albert will have a hard time getting paid a lot of money to play any position on the football field in 2013.

So, basically, the social-media monster known meekly as Twitter has claimed another victim.

Like the rest of us, Albert knew the risks. And yet all too many of us eventually give in to the impulses that result in 140 or fewer characters we’ll never be able to fully live down

I don't want them to take Joeckel if they are able to trade down to lower half of top10 and draft Sheldon Richardson Yes another DL, but he's going to be a beast in the league. Barkley Wilson or Bray in the 2nd. I'd rather sign Albert to a long deal and sign Phil Loadholdt in FA or something.

One things for sure though....Geno Smith isn't worth a #1 overall selection.

Alex Smith will be the starter of this team whether people agree w/ it or not and Geno Smith won't be on this team and people should about it.

Because Willie Roaf was twice the LT that Branden Albert is. Because people who are desperate to avoid drafting an OT with 1.1 are rationalizing by convincing themselves that Branden Albert has been a top LT when the reality is that he's just been above average to good.

The point is that a team with the Chief's winning percentage needs to improve in a lot of different ways. If moving Branden Albert to RT will improve the team, so be it. This isn't a case of "if it ain't broke don't fix it". It's broke.

K.C. Chiefs eye extension for LT Branden Albert


By Kevin Patra NFL.com
Published: March 8, 2013 at 06:25 a.m.
Updated: March 8, 2013 at 07:50 a.m.

When the Kansas City Chiefs cut right tackle Eric Winston on Wednesday, almost everyone assumed it signaled a plan to draft a left tackle with the No. 1 overall selection in April's NFL Draft -- even Branden Albert.

Albert, the incumbent left tackle, tweeted Wednesday he had zero interested in playing anywhere else on the line (he has since deactivated his Twitter account). It turns out he might have jumped the gun with his assumption.


NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Chiefs are continuing to work out a long-term deal with the franchise-tagged Albert on the assumption he will be their left tackle of the future. The Chiefs are still interested in drafting a tackle to fill the right side of the line.

Andy Reid values right and left tackle similarly, so the line of thinking follows that the Chiefs could draft either Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher -- the two highest-rated offensive tackles, according to NFl Network draft expert Mike Mayock -- and slide either of them in at right tackle. With the rookie wage scale, the Chiefs could be replacing Winston with a younger, less-expensive player.

Scouts will get another look at Joeckel at Texas A&M's pro day today, and the Chiefs might be deciphering whether he can play both sides of the offensive line.

The offensive line ain't broke. The quarterback position is, but we're apparently okay with fixing that with duct tape again.

You shouldn't look at it as separate pieces. The offense as a whole was broke last season. That doesn't mean every piece needs to be replaced, but it does call for a systemic reevaluation.

For example, you don't necessarily want the same offensive line for a power running attack offense as you would for a run and shoot offense. Even if it worked for the former, you might want to change it if you're going to implement the latter. All the parts should be built to support the scheme.

Yes. Moving a player that's top 10 at the most important position on the line to the third most important position is really going to improve the team.

Little surprising but the #Chiefs don't have a strong contingent at A&M this morning. Possible they'll have a private workout with Joeckel
