Early years[edit | edit source]

Washington Redskins[edit | edit source]
Albright was named to his first Pro Bowl following the 2007 season. He wore the number 21, along with teammates Chris Cooley and Chris Samuels, in honor of their teammate Sean Taylor, who was killed during the 2007 season. Albright was re-signed by the Redskins, keeping him away from the free agent market, on February 19, 2008.
Personal life[edit | edit source]
Albright and his wife, Katherine, have two daughters and two sons: Mary Grace, Madelyn Costner, Lawson Geoffrey and Nolan Davis; they reside in Greensboro, North Carolina.
In October 2006, Albright became a bit of a cult hero for penning an email to John Madden expressing his displeasure with his overall player rating of 53 out of 100 in the 2007 version of the popular Madden NFL football video game series. It was later revealed that Albright himself did not actually write the letter.
