Al­bert on re­serve/re­tired

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BASEBALL/NFL -

JACK­SONVILLE, Fla. — The Jack­sonville Jaguars have placed left tackle Bran­den Al­bert on the re­serve/re­tired list, es­sen­tially end­ing his brief and baf­fling ten­ure with the team.

The Jaguars said the move came four days af­ter Al­bert ap­proached of­fi­cials “about the op­por­tu­nity to re­turn to the NFL at a later date.”

Plac­ing Al­bert on the re­serve/ re­tired list means his con­tract is paused, and the Jaguars re­tain his rights. Al­bert was sched­uled to make $8.8 mil­lion this sea­son and $9.5 mil­lion in 2018.

For Al­bert to play else­where in 2017, Jack­sonville would have to waive him. Other teams would then get a chance to pick up his con­tract. If he cleared waivers, he would be­come a free agent.
