Branden Albert Placed on Jaguars' Reserve/Retired List After NFL Comeback Report

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 deal likely means Albert will be keeping his bonus without playing for the Jaguars.

Cooney: Daulton Bonded with Phillies Fans
The Phillies released a statement Sunday night saying Daulton had passed away.no other details immediately available. The numbers that Daulton put up were not "leap off the page" good - he only hit.245 with 137 homers and 588 RBIs.

Just one week after he abruptly made a decision to retire, Branden Albert has changed his mind. Albert has walked out on the team a couple of times since he was acquired from the Dolphins back in March.

The Jaguars are now in Foxborough, Massachusetts, for two days of joint practices with the New England Patriots, and a team spokesman said the team would not comment on the situation. Albert sat out Jacksonville's offseason workouts but participated in three days of preseason camp before releasing a statement last Monday that said he had chose to call it a career. He was due to make $9.5 million in 2018. The Dolphins signed Albert in 2014 giving him a signing bonus of $8.5 million.

Explosive device caused blast at Minnesota mosque during morning prayer
A mosque in the USA state of Minnesota was bombed early on Saturday, while worshippers gathered inside for morning prayers. A blast interrupted worshippers at the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota Saturday morning around 5am.

Perhaps that's why Albert, who played for the Chiefs from 2008-13, had a change of heart and met with the Jaguars on Monday about returning.

In mid-June Albert did not take part in a mandatory minicamp of three days held by the team, but reported with the other veterans for Jacksonville to training camp July 26. But it seems that the Jaguars, who have 2017 second-rounder Cam Robinson ready to go at left tackle and former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin as their new head of football operations, believe that a player who can't decide whether or not he wants to play isn't worth the trouble.

Planned immigration changes in USA favour high-earning English speakers
Those aged 18 through 21 gets six points, ages 22 through 25 gets eight points, and ages 26 through 30 get 10 points. But Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton argues current levels of legal immigration drive down the wages of American workers.

Albert announced on July 31 that he was retiring after nine seasons in the league. Albert has missed 20 games over the past five seasons, including four last season with the Dolphins.
