Jaguars release Albert

Well, that was an interesting little stop for Brandon Albert in Jacksonville. The Jaguars traded the Miami Dolphins for him this offseason in hopes of bolstering their offensive line. Then the weird stuff started happening.

Owed $8.875 million in base salary this year, Albert decided to skip offseason workouts for the Jaguars in hopes of getting a new deal. It didn’t work.

Albert then retired from football and then returned to the team when he realized he might have to pay some money back to them.

Well, that didn’t last long as Ian Rapoport says the Jags have simply moved on without him.

“The #Jaguars have officially released LT Branden Albert. Saga is over,” Rapoport tweets.

He’s only 32-years old, so if he still wants to play football he’ll find a home. My guess is that home would be in Baltimore with the Ravens. They just lost another starting offensive lineman in Alex Lewis. Their line is a mess, their quarterback has a sore back, their wide receivers are okay, Lorenzo Taliaferro is their starting running back and I had to actually look that up.

Albert will find a home somewhere, and I’m guessing the Ravens will poll their fans to see if it’s okay to sign him.
