Jaguars place left tackle Branden Albert on reserve/retired list

  • Jaguars left tackle Branden Albert retired July 31 but may be on his way back to the team

Albert skipped all of the Jaguars' offseason conditioning program and organized team activities because he wanted a new contract, but Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said in April the team was not re-working Albert's deal. The Jags aren't exactly racing across the beach of the First Coast to embrace their once presumptive left tackle - at least not yet.

This pretzel of a situation is of Jacksonville's own making.

Albert, 32, has earned two trips to the Pro Bowl and remains one of the better pass-protecting left tackles in the NFL.

Albert was due base salaries of $8.875 million in 2017 and $9.575 million in 2018.

New Reduced Price For Base Tesla Model X
United States electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla plans to raise $1.5bn (£1.15bn) to fund production of its new Model 3 auto . That's a far cry from the 5000 run rate promised by Tesla for this year end, let alone the 10000/week target for 2018.

Basically, Albert wanted more guaranteed money since he was acquired from the Dolphins in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round draft pick in March.

On July 31, Albert retired after participating in three training-camp practices, the Florida Times-Union reported.

It was never clear why Albert, who was battling second-round draft pick Cam Robinson for a starting job, chose to walk away after nine National Football League seasons.

Jacksonville placed Albert on the exempt/left squad list last week.

In recent weeks, the Taliban have been increasing their attacks on towns and cities across the country. He said one police officer was killed at the scene and another who was wounded died later in hospital.

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.

The meeting between the two sides on Monday was likely a feeling-out process.

"Reserve/retired. That's it", Jaguars executive vice president Tom Coughlin said. The machinations ahead will be about maximizing an asset, whether that means spinning off Albert to another tackle-needy team or perhaps regaining a draft pick, or both.
