The Kansas City Chiefs started their offseason training activities on Monday minus franchised tackle Branden Albert. This could be a foreshadowing of what is to come with the tackle as he has made it clear he isn’t happy with the team. According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, Albert was conspicuously absent on the first day of the Andy Reid era. Mike Wilkening of Profootballtalk.com writes: ‘Albert has already signed his franchise tender, but he indicated to USA Today in March that he wants a longer “commitment” than just one year. Moreover, he confirmed that he sees himself as a left tackle. “Voluntary” is the operative term here. Albert doesn’t have to be at these workouts, the first two weeks of which are conditioning-focused per the CBA. Also, it’s possible Albert could show at any time. And if he doesn’t, it’s not as if he doesn’t figure as one of the Chiefs’ five best offensive linemen — assuming he’s not traded.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:
