Just one week following his announced retirement, Albert told his former team the Jacksonville Jaguars he wanted to return to play for them, but a source in the National Football League said Jacksonville was not likely to allow that to happen. According to the Jags official ESPN beat writer, Mike DiRocco, it's unlikely that the Jags will take the veteran back. That doesn't mean his former team will welcome him back.
The 32-year-old Albert surprised Jaguars coach Doug Marrone last week by walking into his office and saying he planned to retire.
Albert was working out in the team facility on the players' day off on July 30 and tight end Marcedes Lewis said he spoke with Albert that day and they talked about the upcoming season. After being traded to Jacksonville from the Dolphins in March, Albert sought and didn't get a new contract from the Jags, so after three days of training camp, he retired before ever playing a down. The Jaguars, however, would rather go with the younger, cheaper option at left tackle in rookie Cam Robinson.
Albert, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, sacrificed $8.9 million in base salary when he retired July 31, money that is guaranteed if he is on the Week 1 roster.
