KANSAS CITY, Mo. Fishing? The Kansas Chiefs aren't just fishing, brother. Apparently, they're still dangling, too.
"Well, right now, he's a Kansas City Chief," coach Andy Reid said when asked Friday about Branden Albert, who insists he's either going to play left tackle or take his ball and go home. "That's what he is as we speak right now.
"(We) kept the options open, not only for us, but for him, so he can see where the value is, and so on. We'll see how things work out as we continue on."
That's an awful lot of qualifiers in one go, even for Reid. So the official word after Day 2 of the NFL Draft was that while the oft-speculated swap of Albert-to-Miami-for-second-rounders came and went without actually happening, the possibility of Albert being swapped for something else of use is possibly still on the table, somewhere.
"All along, it's been an ongoing process," general manager John Dorsey allowed. "It will be an ongoing process until the end of the draft takes place."
