Could the Chiefs let Branden Albert walk?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"Right now, he's the right tackle," said general manager John Dorsey of Fisher. "I think he showed that (things) slowed down for him (during) the final third of the season. He began to get comfortable and realize there were different types of pass rushers in the National Football League."

Fisher allowed seven sacks and 35 hurries this season, both team-highs.
