Branden Albert Sits Down With PFW


Pro Football Weekly recently sat down with Branden Albert to find out how he is enjoying Kansas City’s BBQ, what the transition from guard to tackle has been like, and who has he made friends with on the team. Here are some excerpts:

Kansas City is famous for its barbeque — have you been able to sample any great BBQ yet?

I’ve tasted a couple of places: LC’s Bar-B-Q and Gates Bar-B-Q. Those places have great food.

Being a guard in college and now moving to left tackle in Kansas City, how is the transition going?

It’s going pretty well. There are times where I’m doing very well and there are times where I’m struggling. But for the most part, I’m getting it and learning on the run.

Which Chiefs players have you become friends with?

Dwayne Bowe and Brian Waters. Most of my rookie class I am pretty good friends with, too. A lot of guys, but those two that I mentioned, I talk to and do stuff with on a regular basis.

Which player are you most looking forward to playing against in the NFL?

I would have to say Julius Peppers.

Now go check out the rest of the article to find out why he wants to go against Julius Peppers and how Brian Waters has been helping him along.
