Then work it out from there... Albert's on a one year rental so they can get a close look at him, decide if he's worthy of a longer term deal or whatever. If not, they have Joeckel who really is a natural and fine pass protector.
This is likely the case.
However why then would KC even bother giving Albert the tag? If they cut Winston for financial reasons (or whatever) just don't re-sign Albert and draft Joeckel and both your tackles are set up long term. Just gonna have another hole possibly in one year, or (likely) have to overpay to keep Albert long term after spending the #1 pick on a RT (the same draft where you gave up the #34 pick for Alex Smith).
Maybe Reid and this new front office has an, quote "their guy" coming in for cheap at tackle or something? Confusing.
