Jaguars released LT Branden Albert.
This concludes what has been a bizarre cat and mouse game between Albert and the Jaguars. Albert announced his retirement after struggling at the start of camp, only to return a week later when he found out he may have to pay back some of his signing bonus. The Jags ultimately decided it wasn't worth the hassle and now Albert is free to sign with a team of his choosing. Coming off a lackluster year in Miami, it's fair to wonder how much Albert has in the tank or even if he has any interest in playing. Aug 11 - 3:46 PM

Jaguars placed LT Branden Albert on the reserve/retired list.

Jacksonville claims it is a mutual decision which came after meeting with Albert on Monday. That suggests Albert's decision to "unretire" was just a ploy to force Jacksonville's hand after they placed him on the "left team" list following his first "retirement." The Jaguars still control Albert's rights, but there appears to be zero chance he plays for them this season, or likely ever.
Aug 8 - 10:44 AM

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco reports the team is "unlikely" to allow LT Branden Albert to return to the organization.

Albert has walked out on the team more than once since he was acquired from the Dolphins back in March. First, he refused to show up to OTAs or minicamp before reporting for the first day of training camp only to "retire" three days into it after he was getting his butt kicked by the Jaguars' younger linemen. Now that it's been revealed he may have to pay back $3.4 million to the team as part of his signing bonus, Albert wants back in. That sure blew up in Albert's face.

Jaguars LT Branden Albert has decided to report back to the team.

Albert announced just one week ago that he was retiring, but it didn't last long. When he decided to walk away from the team, it was then reported that Albert would owe the Jaguars $3.4 million in signing bonus money that was paid to him after Jacksonville acquired Albert from the Dolphins. All along, Albert has been trying to force the Jaguars' hands in an effort to land more guaranteed money, but GM Dave Caldwell and EVP Tom Coughlin haven't budged. Before "retiring," Albert was reportedly looking ragged in practice. He has one month to get his act together and should ultimately start at left tackle if the club welcomes him back.
Aug 7 - 9:34 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Branden Albert will have to return $3.4 million in signing bonus to the Jaguars if he follows through on his retirement.

It would be quite the bitter ending for a player who spent most of the spring angling for an enhanced contract. It's quite possible Albert's decision is not final, as he and the Jags butted heads from the second he was acquired from Miami. Albert could be trying to force some action. It has the makings of an unpleasant situation.
Jul 31 - 3:19 PM

Jaguars LT Branden Albert announced his retirement after nine seasons in the NFL.

Even though he skipped voluntary portions of the offseason program due to a contract dispute after the Jaguars acquired him from the Dolphins via trade, this decision comes as a surprise. A 2008 first-round pick by the Chiefs, Albert played 16 games just once in nine years, but he was a quality blindside protector when on the field, earning Pro Bowl nods in 2013 and 2015. With Albert hanging up his cleats, the Jags' left tackle job is now second-rounder Cam Robinson's to lose.

Branden Albert opened Jaguars camp as the first-team left tackle.

It is notable after he skipped the voluntary portions of the offseason program due to a contract dispute. Second-round rookie Cam Robinson should still be given a shot to unseat him, but Albert is clearly the favorite to start on the blindside this year. Robinson could end up playing right guard.
Jul 27 - 10:47 AM

Jaguars LT Branden Albert said he's moving on from his contract dispute, and admits he overplayed his hand.

"No," Albert replied when asked if he's underpaid. "At the time, when you see the situation and (how) the market came out, you try and do what’s best business-wise. It didn’t work that way and it’s time to move on." Albert ran with the third-stringers on the opening day of minicamp, but even with second-rounder Cam Robinson in the fold, Albert should be on the blindside come Week 1.
Jun 13 - 5:43 PM

Jaguars LT Branden Albert said he will attend training camp.

Albert sat out the voluntary portions of the offseason program in hopes of landing a new deal from his new team, but he reported for minicamp on Monday and says he has put the contract situation behind him. Second-rounder Cam Robinson will provide competition, but Albert should win the left tackle job in camp.
Jun 13 - 11:37 AM

Jaguars LT Branden Albert officially reported for mandatory minicamp on Monday.

The practices run Tuesday-Thursday. Albert has remained away from the team since being acquired from the Dolphins in late February. He was believed to be seeking a contract adjustment, one that does not appear to be coming. Even with second-rounder Cam Robinson in the fold, Albert should man the blindside in 2017.
Jun 12 - 2:10 PM

Coach Doug Marrone said LT Branden Albert told him he will report to mandatory minicamp.

Albert hasn't really seen his coaches or teammates since being acquired from the Dolphins prior to the draft. He reportedly wants a sweetened contract, but the Jaguars have been reluctant to give it to him. Maybe once he shows his face and displays that he's in playing shape, the Jaguars will kick him some guaranteed money. It's important to remember OTAs are completely voluntary.
Jun 9 - 12:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jaguars LT Branden Albert will not report for the start of OTAs.

Rapoport's colleague James Palmer reported over the weekend there were "some people" within the Jaguars who believed Albert would show after reopening communication last week, but Albert is still looking for a sweetened deal. With second-round rookie Cam Robinson an option at left tackle, Jacksonville is likely content to wait the veteran out. Mandatory minicamp begins in three weeks. Skipping that would show Albert is serious about his hold out.
May 23 - 9:01 AM

NFL Network's James Palmer reports "some people" within the Jaguars believe Branden Albert will show up for OTAs on Tuesday.

Albert skipped voluntary work and had gone radio silent in hopes of landing a sweetened deal from his new team, but he reportedly texted coach Doug Marrone on Friday. Palmer says the two sides plan to talk over the next couple days. It looks like Albert will be an option for Jacksonville this season, but he will face competition from second-rounder Cam Robinson at left tackle. The loser will likely end up at left guard.

May 20 - 10:41 AM

The Jaguars and LT Branden Albert have resumed communication about a new contract.

Trying to get a sweetened deal, Albert skipped voluntary workouts and temporarily went dark on communication. Owed $18.45 million over the next two seasons, Albert has been seeking more guaranteed money. With OL Cam Robinson now on the roster, Albert has less leverage. Robinson could end up at guard, but for now the Jags can claim he's a candidate on the blindside.
May 18 - 1:24 PM

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he’s still yet to talk with LT Branden Albert.

"No. Probably don’t expect him to now," said Marrone. "You just want to know where everyone is at." Albert has been a no-show at voluntary workouts. The Jaguars have made clear they won’t be giving him a new deal, but it sounds like there’s some concern over his 2017 status. Albert will face competition from second-rounder Cam Robinson whenever he reports.
