Well, this is a little unusual bit of good news for the Jacksonville Jaguars camp.
Second, Albert coming back forces the Jaguars' hand. Where he fits into the Jaguars offensive line rotation is still to be seen, especially considering he was retired as of last week. It's possible the 32-year-old overplayed his hand, as Albert had openly expressed a desire to work out a new contract with the Jags prior to retiring. He would move straight into a starting role, spending the first six seasons of his career as a member of the Chiefs, earning his first Pro Bowl nomination in 2013.
After three days of camp, Albert announced his retirement. Jacksonville has been one of the worst teams in football for nearly a decade. Word is, he was being outclassed by Jacksonville's younger linemen. He now plays guard for the Seattle Seahawks. That doesn't mean his former team will welcome him back. Jacksonville's biggest question is if the offense can be anything close to competent.
But he downplayed what Bortles or any of his players might get from watching quarterback Tom Brady, a future Hall of Famer and the engineer of the Patriots' improbable come-from-behind, overtime win over Atlanta in Super Bowl LI, his fifth Super Bowl title.
Albert helped the Dolphins rush for 1,824 yards and allowed just four sacks in 13 games past year, despite playing with a ligament tear in his wrist for the second half of the season.
