Jaguars release OT Albert

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

Albert, 32, acquired from Miami for a 2018 seventh-round pick (which the Dolphins have since returned), was a no-show for the Jaguars' voluntary off-season program. Since Albert did not make the roster the Jaguars will get their pick back.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Albert was initially expected to compete for the starting left tackle position. In April the Jaguars draft OT Cam Robinson from the University of Alabama to presumably be their LT of the future.

If Albert's primary motivation was to earn a new contract, then you might say he won.

Albert's release comes days after the two-time Pro Bowl selection chose to end his week-long retirement. He showed up to camp and was working with the first team in camp on most days. Albert did show up to the mandatory mini camp, avoiding National Football League mandated fines. On July 30th a video surfaced on the internet of Albert being beaten badly in pass rushing drills by DE Dante Fowler Jr.

Albert had been on the team's reserve/retired list.

August 4 - Albert approached the team about the opportunity to return to the National Football League at a later date.

August 7 -team officials met with Albert and mutually agreed to place him on the club's reserve/retired list. He will go through the waiver process and if no team claims him, he will become a free agent.
