Albert may not be done here !

Branden Albert, Chiefs hoping to work out contract0By Chris Wesseling
Around the League Writer

Published: Feb. 22, 2014 at 12:08 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Despite rampant speculation to the contrary, the Kansas City Chiefs have not decided to let left tackle Branden Albert walk in free agency.

General manager John Dorsey told NFL Media's Steve Wyche on Friday that the Chiefs are still hoping to work out a deal for Albert before free agency begins in March.


Dorsey declined to say if the franchise tag would be an option should the sides fail to reach an accord. Because he was tagged last year, Albert would merit a 120 percent raise on his $9.828 million contract from 2013.

More proof that Albert remains in the team's plans? Dorsey told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday that 2013 No. 1 overall draft pick Eric Fisher is still penciled in as a right tackle, not a left tackle.

Albert is one of this year's top 10 free agents. If he's kept off the market, tackle-needy teams such as the Arizona Cardinals will be disappointed.

As for quarterback Alex Smith, Dorsey confirmed to Wyche that an extension is on the agenda, but there is no rush to complete a deal.

Neither Albert nor Smith can be blamed for the Chiefs' late-season collapse. This offense scored 35 points in five of their last seven games, including four games with more than 40 points.

This franchise is fail.
Yeah there's probably 3 tackles in this draft that are better prospects than Fisher was and none of them will go 1.1

Who cares? We knew that Fisher coming from a small school would take a little longer to develop. It's the reason people preferred Fisher over Joeckl.

Develop into what?

Most people here liked his athleticism as a potential LT.

He is, according to the team, a RIGHT tackle.

You can spin it all you want, it wasn't a good pick.

I don't think anyone has said it was a good pick.

He's a RT until Albert signs elsewhere.

Not this shit again. It's been 1 season. Ya, verdict is still out on Fish. Only more scrutiny because of where he was picked. May turn out to be fine - he's not breaking bank or crippling the franchise for the future.

So please, shut the **** up with this myopic shit as if his value or play is set in Stone after season 1.

According to John Dorsey, he's a RT period. Nothing was said about Albert.

I'm not spinning this into a good pick. I never have. And I never will. I didn't like the pick and know he won't ever live up to the 1.1 billing. That doesn't mean he won't turn out to be a quality tackle.

And I could give a shit what the team says he will be, especially in spin season as they figure out what to do with Albert. Joe Staley was a Right Tackle too before he became a LT. There's no doubt that his skill sets are better suited for the Left.

This.

I've said several times and nobody's really responded that the new CBA has made it extremely difficult for rookies to break in because they've cut out a TON of rookies' offseason work. Especially difficult for a guy like Fisher, who needs a ton of help having come from a small school.

Fish will have a full offseason to work with coaches, to work on a conditioning plan (which I imagine he is already on), and should hopefully finally have a healthy shoulder. And there's no denying he improved a lot throughout the season. These are big reasons to at least be optimstic that he'll get better.

The thing is, if Fisher works out they look like geniouses (CP spelling). If they re-sign Albert and Fisher stinks and it's Albert and Stephenson from there on, then we're still screwing ourselves with two big LT contracts and only one serviceable LT.

They already made the gambit when they drafted Fisher. It was a gamble. Go through with it. Don't start backtracking now and panic-pay an aging, average tackle a huge contract. You make the upside play.

While not set in stone, he looked like absolute ASS when he was actually on the field.
