Found May 14, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Any question about whether Branden Albert would fit right back in with the Kansas City Chiefs was put to rest when new quarterback Alex Smith greeted his left tackle with a smile. Albert rejoined the Chiefs on Tuesday after missing several weeks of voluntary workouts and meetings for the start of organized team activities, which run for the next three weeks. Albert has been seeking a long-term contract, but the two sides have been far apart. So the Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Albert and he signed the tender for about $9.3 million this season, yet chose to stay away from the team. There were even discussions with the Miami Dolphins to trade him.

Branden Albert set to make his awkward return to Chiefs

It's been a crazy few months for left tackle Branden Albert. After a back and forth between the Chiefs and Dolphins in trade talks, he's still where he started.

But all that is water over the bridge, as the Chiefs are reportedly seeking...

Dwayne Bowe says he’ll lead the NFL in receptions and touchdowns in 2013

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is one pretty confident person.  He told the Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star that he’ll lead the league this season in receptions and touchdowns.  He also believes in running back Jamaal Charles and said he’ll be the league leader in rushing.

Kansas City Chiefs Sign Draft Pick Braden Wilson

Kansas City Chiefs Waive Two Including DB De’Quan Menzie
