Jaguars may not let Branden Albert return after retirement, report says

After declining to comment on the situation Monday the Jaguars released the following statement on Tuesday. The Jaguars placed Albert on the exempt/left team list, which gave him a five-day window to return to the team.

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

Albert had two years remaining on the five-year contract he signed with Miami in 2014.

Albert, 32, had wanted a new contract since the Jaguars acquired him from Miami in March in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round draft pick. He still owes the Jaguars two more seasons - with salaries of $8.875 million and $9.575 million - and the team has the first option for Albert's services if he does decide to play again. For the Jags, they have to hope Albert is not a distraction or even a shell of his former self but that being back on the field and in the camaraderie of the locker room will motivate him to be the Pro Bowl blocker he's been in previous seasons.

In mid-June Albert did not take part in a mandatory minicamp of three days held by the team, but reported with the other veterans for Jacksonville to training camp July 26.

This has to come as a shock to the Jaguars, who were preparing to potentially start rookie second-round pick Cam Robinson at left tackle following Albert's retirement.

At the moment it's not clear why Alert chose to walk away after nine National Football League seasons or why he has suddenly changed his mind.

Albert returned to the facility the next morning and told head coach Doug Marrone he was retiring. Albert missed 20 games over the last five seasons, including seven in 2014 because of a knee injury.
