Jaguars release OT Branden Albert after attempted comeback

Jaguars offensive lineman Branden Albert arrives at practice July 28 in Jacksonville Fla

Offensive tackle Branden Albert's odd journey with the Jacksonville Jaguars has come to an end after the team released him Friday. However, the 32-year-old apparently had a change of heart a week later. On July 31st Albert abruptly retired from the team.

Jacksonville acquired Albert in a trade with the Miami Dolphins for tight end Julius Thomas.

The Jaguars traded a seventh-round pick to the Dolphins for Albert this offseason, but he did not show up for off-season practices, as he was negotiating for a better contract.

It appeared the saga may be over in July when Albert reported to mandatory training camp.

May 23 - Organized Team Activities begin.

On July 31, Albert announced his retirement from the National Football League in a statement released through the Jaguars' official website.

August 4 - Albert approached the team about the opportunity to return to the National Football League at a later date. In response, the Jags placed him on the reserve/retired list, and now they have released him. He was due a base salary of $8.9 million in 2017 and $9.6 million in 2018, though none of that money was guaranteed. The Jaguars will retain the draft pick because Albert did not play in three regular season games for the team.

Prior to his retirement, Albert was expected to compete with Jaguars rookie Cam Robinson for the starting left tackle job.
