Though he wasn’t the first to say it, former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards always used to talk about how nothing good happens after midnight. In the case of Chiefs LT Branden Albert it was after 2am.
According to a report in the New York Times, Albert was at the Juliet Supper Club in New York City just after 2am Tuesday morning when a man was shot and killed. The tackle was among several professional athletes there, including former Chiefs (and now former Eagles) safety Jarrad Page.
A NYPD spokesman said there are no indications that any of the athletes in attendance had anything to do with the shooting which also left two others wounded. Still, the city’s police commissioner, Raymond Kelly said that the club “has had shootings in the past”.
In addition to Albert and Page, there were at least five Giants players present to celebrate the birthday of WR Victor Cruz as well as NBA stars John Wall, Kemba Walker, Russell Westbrook and others.
The Chiefs had Tuesday off and Albert was said to be at practice Wednesday.
