Jaguars place LT Branden Albert on reserve/retired list


All joking aside, the Branden Albert and Jacksonville Jaguars fiasco now going on is something that would have worked out beautifully for the Baltimore Ravens had they not already signed former Oakland Raiders right tackle Austin Howard last week. It's possible the 32-year-old overplayed his hand, as Albert had openly expressed a desire to work out a new contract with the Jags prior to retiring. The Miami Dolphins returned a 2018 seventh-round pick to the Jaguars.

Albert, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, sacrificed $8.9 million in base salary when he retired July 31, money that is guaranteed if he is on the Week 1 roster.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Albert didn't travel with the Jaguars to New England for the team's preseason opener, and that there are "lots moving parts" regarding Albert's future in Jacksonville. Albert worked with the first-team offense on the first day of camp, but Robinson practiced with the first-team offense in the next two practices. Albert reported to training camp last month but announced his intention to retire after just a few days. At the time, he released a statement via the team where he wished the Jaguars luck and looked forward to going back to Miami where he would pursue business interests.

Placing Albert on the reserve/retired list means his contract is paused, and the Jaguars retain his rights. Plus there are several issues at hand if they allow Albert to return only to later cut or trade him. The Jaguars, however, would rather go with the younger, cheaper option at left tackle in rookie Cam Robinson. He spent his first six seasons with the Chiefs and then signed a five-year, $47 million deal in free agency with the Dolphins.
