Jaguars end Branden Albert saga by releasing the veteran”

Branden Albert's stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars went about as poorly as it could have gone, and the former Pro Bowl left tackle won't end up playing a down for the franchise in the end. After skipping the majority of the offseason program, Albert abruptly announced his retirement on July 31.

The Jaguars will also get back the seventh-round pick they used in exchange for the trade with the Miami Dolphins to acquire Albert earlier this season. Now that Albert has been released by Jacksonville, he is free to sign with any National Football League team that may want his services.

May 23 - Organized Team Activities begin. The team declined to respond publicly at the time.

On Monday, the Jaguars and Albert met again and the team said they "mutually agreed", to place him on the reserve/retired list, which meant the Jaguars held on to his rights for the final two years of his contract. Jacksonville's release of Albert won't include any dead-money charges.

Albert was scheduled to make $8.8 million this season and $9.5 million in 2018. The Dolphins will not receive the seventh-round draft pick from the Jaguars as Albert had to appear in three games.

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