Albright played in the USFL with the Michigan Panthers and the Pittsburgh Maulers. While with the Maulers in 1984, they converted Albright, who they thought was too small at five foot ten to be a defensive lineman, into a fullback. The Maulers and Albright were both pleasently surprised by the result. Albirght joined Montreal for one game partway through the 1986 season. After leaving Montreal, Albright played three games in the NFL with Buffalo in 1987.
