Jaguars place left tackle Branden Albert on reserve/retired list

Patriots hold first joint practice with Jaguars Branden Albert Reportedly Will Report to Jaguars After Previously Retiring

It's the sixth straight season the Patriots have held joint practices, but the first time the Jaguars have visited. The Dolphins were planning to release Albert before the Jaguars expressed interest in trading for him.

Some members of the Jaguars, a team seemingly stuck in a rebuilding process for the past nine seasons, said they're using this week as a marker to see where they stand heading into the season. That said, considering his questionable stint with the team dating back to OTAs along with his retirement, the Jags may feel that the veteran might not be worth the hassle. Albert wants to play again, but it's up to the Jaguars if it will be with them.

That was evident from the beginning Tuesday as the Jaguars and defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots practiced in gray, cool temperatures nothing like Northeast Florida.

The team announced Tuesday the nine-year veteran will be placed on the reserve/retired list despite Albert approaching front office personnel Friday about the opportunity to return to the National Football League at a later date.

"There is no doubt there has been some bad stuff that's happened that we have to fix and continue to work on, but I think if you watched 7-on-7s [Tuesday] or 1-on-1s, there weren't a whole lot of times we got stopped".

The Patriots had an impressive outing yesterday, as Tom Brady and Brandin Cooks hooked up for a few touchdowns, including some highlight-reel material. "This is definitely going to help us".
