Albright, who was drafted in the 20th round of the 1951 NFL Draft, played all four years of his NFL career with the Giants. He played the position of guard on both offense and defense, recovering eight fumbles -one of which was returned for a touchdown- in his 47 career games.
In 1955, Albright would be lured away from Steve Owen and the Giants by the Canadian Football League (joining the Toronto Argonauts and later the Montreal Alouettes), who offered him a substantial raise. He would go on to play in Canada for an additional four years before being forced to retire due to injury.
Albright is survived by his wife, Eleanor, his four children, William, Jon, Kristine and Patricia, his five grandchildren and one great-grandson.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the Albright family. Once a Giant, always a Giant.
