    Branden Albert's retirement lasts seven days

    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.

    Miami will also see a small benefit from Albert’s resolution, as the club should acquire that aforementioned 2018 draft choice if Albert says on Jacksonville’s roster for at least three games.

    Branden Albert has told the Jaguars*he wants to return*from his brief retirement, but now the question is whether the Jaguars want Albert on their team. And the answer to that may be no.

    According to an ESPN report, the Jags are “unlikely to allow him to” return to the team.

    Yea they may end up cutting him, if so we still don't get the pick back.

    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.

    I would hope Miami sends him a text seeing if he wants to play OG next to Tunsil
