Draft Scout *Branden Albert News
08/11/17 - OT Branden Albert was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday, just four days after the two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle informed the team that he had changed his mind about retiring. Albert was released by the Jaguars from the reserved/retired list. He will go through the waiver process and will become a free agent if no team claims him. The 32-year-old Albert abruptly retired on July 31, releasing a statement through the club in which he said he aimed to return to Miami to pursue his business interests. The Jaguars traded their seventh-round pick of the 2018 draft to the Dolphins in March for Albert, who had two seasons remaining on the five-year contract he signed with Miami in 2014. 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.
08/07/17 - OT Branden Albert reportedly told the Jaguars on Monday that he will come back to training camp and reverse his decision to retire.
Albert initially announced his retirement on July 31 following three practices in training camp. He would owe Jacksonville $3.4 million in signing-bonus money if he stayed retired.
The Jaguars acquired Albert from the Miami Dolphins for a 2018 seventh-round pick in March. The Dolphins likely would have released Albert before Jacksonville showed interest in acquiring him.
07/31/17 - LT Branden Albert announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday after nine seasons and without playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars acquired the 32-year-old Albert during the offseason from the Miami Dolphins for a 2018 seventh-round draft pick. Albert, a starter in 118 of 120 career games played and a Pro Bowl selection in 2013 and 2015, was expected to compete with rookie second-round selection Cam Robinson at left tackle. Albert, who missed the voluntary portion of the Jaguars' offseason program in an unsuccessful effort to renegotiate his contract, participated in the mandatory three-day minicamp in June and the first three days of training camp last week.
06/13/17 - OT Branden Albert arrived at the Jacksonville Jaguars' team facility on Monday, one day before the start of mandatory minicamp. Albert skipped the Jaguars' voluntary workouts reportedly because he was in search of a new contract. The 32-year-old, however, told coach Doug Marrone last week that he would attend the minicamp. Albert was acquired from the Miami Dolphins in March in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick.
06/13/17 - LT Branden Albert started his Jacksonville career listed as the No. 3 left tackle, with plenty of work to do on the conditioning side as well. "(He) probably looked like a guy who hasn't been here for a long period of time," Marrone said when asked how Albert looked in his first team practice on Tuesday. Albert, acquired from Miami in March, failed to join his teammates for any of the offseason workouts and skipped all 10 of the team's OTA sessions the past three weeks.
