Afternoon notes: Chiefs believe in Albert
By Bill Williamson
The Kansas City Chiefs are committed to using Branden Albert at left tackle. There was talk that Albert, the No. 15 overall pick in 2008, would move to right tackle if the Chiefs took a tackle with the No. 5 pick in the April draft. However, the selection of safety Eric Berry was a statement of support for Albert. He improved in his second season. He needs to make continued improvement in his third season.
Interesting words from Oakland running back Michael Bush on new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. Bush said Jackson’s motto is that he wants his unit to “build a bully.” The Raiders have been meek on offense in recent years. A tougher attitude wouldn’t hurt.
The Chiefs are excited about the speed their rookie class will bring. There’s no doubt Kansas City added some explosiveness this spring, especially in the form of second-round picks Dexter McCluster and Javier Arenas.
Former Denver cornerback Ty Law still may try to play in 2010. Denver has not expressed any interest in bringing him back.
San Diego legendary ex-tailback LaDainian Tomlinson's Chargers’ tattoo now has company.
