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.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars officially released Albert four days after he reported to the team following a brief retirement.

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.

On July 31, Albert announced his retirement from the National Football League in a statement released through the Jaguars' official website. Albert does not participate in the voluntary practices. He reported for the three-day mandatory mini-camp in June and for training camp last month before going home after one padded practice. The team declined to respond publicly at the time.

August 7 -team officials met with Albert and mutually agreed to place him on the club's reserve/retired list. The former Kansas City Chiefs first-round pick played three seasons on that contract, but the deal had no guaranteed money left. They also are likely to have salary cap money rebated to them as a result of the retirement and eventual release.

Albert was set to battle second-round pick Cam Robinson for the starting left tackle job, but now it's nearly certain that the rookie will win the gig.
