2007 | Albert Lewis | Cornerback


Lewis was a vaunted cover man and a lynchpin for the league's most decorated secondary unit for over a decade … Picked off 20 passes during his first four professional campaigns before opponents finally decided it wasn't a good idea to test him … Four-time Pro Bowl cornerback concluded his Chiefs tenure with 38 career interceptions, the fifth-highest total in franchise history … In addition to his exemplary coverage skills, possessed tremendous speed off the edge and owned an uncanny ability to stretch out his body on special teams … Utilized those rare traits to become the most adept kick blocker in franchise history, swatting down a team-record 10 punts, four of which were returned by the Chiefs for a TD … Named Kansas City's MVP following the '86 season when he accounted for 69 tackles (61 solo), four INTs, two fumble recoveries, a sack and a blocked punt … Also earned a spot on the Chiefs 25-Year All-Time Team in '87 … Helped lead the club to five playoff berths and was a member of the '93 squad that reached the AFC Championship Game … Saw duty in 150 games (128 starts) for the Red and Gold, accumulating 555 tackles (450 solo), 38 INTs, 11 fumble recoveries and 4.5 sacks … Spent the final five years of his professional career with "another" AFC West squad, but it was in a Chiefs uniform where he built his reputation as one of the most respected cornerbacks of his era … Joined the club as a third-round selection in the '83 NFL Draft out of Grambling … Born October 6, 1960 in Mansfield, Louisiana.
