Chiefs Sign Albert

Chiefs Sign Albert

Chiefs offensive tackle Branden Albert will play the 2013 season on a one-year contract.  The two sides failed to reach a multi-year agreement before yesterday’s deadline to sign franchised players long-term.  Albert previously signed a one-year, 9.8-million-dollar tender.  Negotiations cannot resume until after the season when Albert will be an unrestricted free agent.
