Goodbye Branden Albert

Farewell Song:


How do we say goodbye to a first round tackle that actually panned out for the Chiefs. He inked a deal with the Miami Dolphins, paying him $9.5 million per year according to several sources across the league. Congratulations on that Branden, you’ve worked hard to earn it. Like McCluster, the Chiefs knew this departure was eminent and they drafted a replacement in Eric Fisher last season.

Albert put together a solid 2013, earning his first pro-bowl appearance in his career. I would’ve loved to keep Albert, as he could’ve been the anchor of the offensive line for many more years to come, but he too was a cap casualty. He’s been a quality player and person since entering the league, and he’ll give the Dolphins all he’s got.

So how do we say goodbye, farewell Branden Albert.
