Jacksonville Jaguars OT Branden Albert reportedly ending brief retirement

Albert participated in the team's mandatory three-day minicamp in mid-June and reported for training camp with the rest of the team's veterans on July 26.

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.

Just one week following his announced retirement, Albert told his former team the Jacksonville Jaguars he wanted to return to play for them, but a source in the National Football League said Jacksonville was not likely to allow that to happen.

If he plays this season, Albert would be owed almost $9 million but that salary is not guaranteed, nor is his $9.5 million 2018 salary.

When looking at the specifics and the $8.875 million price tag he'd come with, it's easy to see why they wouldn't want him back due to his questionable commitment. He signed a five-year, $47 million deal with the Dolphins in 2014 after six seasons with the Chiefs.

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.

Miami basically traded Albert to Jacksonville for tight end Julius Thomas on March 9, and the teams exchanged late-round draft picks. Albert worked out with the team's first team offense the first day of training camp, but Robinson over the next two days took reps with the first team.

Albert returned to the facility the next morning and told head coach Doug Marrone he was retiring.

Albert was the 15th overall pick by Kansas City in 2008. Albert missed 20 games over the last five seasons, including seven in 2014 because of a knee injury.
