Albert is set to become a free agent in March, which could mean a position switch is in store for Fisher. The Chiefs selected Eric Fisher with the first overall pick in last year’s draft and then installed him at right tackle after attempts to trade left tackle Branden Albert led nowhere. According to Pro Football Focus, Fisher who played on the left side at Central Michigan and was moved to the right side with the Chiefs to accommodate Albert allowed seven sacks and 35 hurries this season, both team highs. One of most crucial decisions for Chiefs general manager John Dorsey this offseason is at left tackle, where Branden Albert is a free agent. Albert played pretty well, but with the cap numbers for several key players expected to increase significantly, Dorsey might understandably be hard-pressed to do the same this season.
