Jaguars release left tackle Branden Albert from reserved/retired list

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.

The 32-year-old Albert surprised coach Doug Marrone on July 31 by walking into his office and saying he planned to retire.

Jacksonville acquired Albert in a trade with the Miami Dolphins for tight end Julius Thomas.
