    His pass blocking? Albert is a top 10 pass blocker among the LT position.
    Where did you read that?

    Chiefs | Branden Albert not interested in changing positions

    Kansas City Chiefs franchise free-agent OT Branden Albert said he will play left tackle next season and is not interested in moving to another position.

    Yea, Ozzie is going to do what Ozzie does best. He will spend wisely, have a solid plan for a LT, sign a cheap backup center, and turn his attention to making the defense faster and stronger up the middle. Less expensive then Long.
    Trust in Ozzie. He is the best.

    That's what I have read. Considering they're paying him OT franchise tag money, I think they will leave him at OT.

    I also heard an interview of his where he said that he has no interest to play another position.

    I misrepresented. But it's what I've read from the KC media monkeys that have floated the notion for the past two seasons now: kicking Albert inside. For the present, it seems that once Smith was acquired, some in that town think that now is a good time to make it happen with Joker sitting there for the first pick. This notion has also been paired with the idea of paying Albert less at G than he would demand at T, and putting the savings onto Bowe's tag number, or let Bowe walk and put the savings into Jennings or Wallace. Although, once they let Breaston go, I think Bowe was pretty much a lock to stay onboard via tag or new deal.

    Back to Albert, I think he has no doubt heard or read enough of the Guard vs. Tackle sentiment as well. I think that's why he chose to get the "not interested in moving" comment on the record back in January.

    That's the interesting thing. Albert has played on both sides but he's better on the left. They brought in in Eric Winston, who blew off his Ravens interview, last year for the right.

    I had forgotten about that.
    Hmmm...no ring for you, Eric Winston.

    Arguably, if they had brought in Winston then Oher might have stayed on the left and McKinney might have even been cut and all sorts of shit would have happened different.

    Yep, left to defend Matt Cassel against fans booing/cheering as Cassel got hurt.

    Meanwhile they give Dustin Colquitt (their punter) 5/$18.75m ($8.9m guaranteed), highest paid punter in the NFL (5th para).

    Well, I guess he is going to be busy next season...
