The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday they signed tackle Branden Albert, the second of the team's two first-round draft picks.
Financial details of the five-year agreement between the Chiefs and the former Cavalier standout tackle were not released.
The team appears far from an agreement with its other first-round pick, defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey. The team headed to camp Thursday.
The 6-foot-5, 316-pound Albert - the Chiefs' 15th overall pick -started all 37 games he appeared in at Virginia.
Also unsigned is tight end Michael Merritt, a seventh-round pick out of Central Florida.
