I wonder what that does to the initial trade between JAX and the Phins?

Retires - ( New Window )
Probably didn't like having to be 5 minutes early

or maybe the contract that he signed

He probably watched Blake Bortles throw 5 ints in practice and thought, nah I'm good.
He wanted more money and the Jaguars wouldn't budge

The Jags are entitled to reclaim the remaining $3.4 million signing bonus paid by the Dolphins because they own the contract
Larry: Read somewhere that the trade will be rescinded

Pretty damned good for a guy who was barely recruited by anyone out of high school. A great Hoo who had a very nice NFL career.
He's reporting to camp...

To add to what Anak briefly mentioned, is that Albert want to end his "retirement" (can't really call it that as it has been just over a week) and return to the team. The Jaguars are unlikely to allow Albert to return as they question his dedication. They could try to trade him or cut him.

Yeah, now he wants to "un-retire" but he's almost certainly not going to go back to playing with JAX.

So, he's sort of available... I don't think NYG will make a move, but if they're looking for LT help.. there's a team they can call.
Dare I say..

Not if Balki has anything to say about it!
I don't know much about this story besides  
T-Bone : 8/8/2017 2:36 pm : link
what I've read yesterday and today about this situation but based on what I've read I really want no part of this guy. I think he's in it 100% for the paycheck and doesn't really want to play anymore.

I wouldn't disagree - the reason why he's trying to "un-retire" now is almost entirely based on the fact that he realized he owed JAX about 3.5 M if he were to do so.

Seemed poorly thought out and I think you can definitely question this guys commitment to football at this point.
