Reid says Albert is a proven left tackle


With 19 interviews from the past three days, it’s hard to keep all of the information straight.  At times, the overload makes it hard to remember left from right.

The Chiefs won’t have that problem with left tackle Branden Albert.  Because he won’t be moving to the right side.

Coach Andy Reid said so during a visit to the mobile, open-air, Arizona Pro Football Talk studio.

“He’s done it and he’s done it at a very high level,” Reid said.  “Enough to where we [franchise] tagged him.  I loved him coming out of the University of Virginia and I’ve watched him throughout his career at Kansas City and he’s a proven left tackle in this league.  That doesn’t mean he can’t play other things but that’s what he is.”

Albert will be happy to hear that, given that he has made his preference very clear.

Then again, he may be playing left tackle for someone else.  Now that he has signed his franchise tender, Albert can be traded.
