SiriusXM's Adam Caplan broke the story, which was then reported by multiple media outlets.

He then participated in three days of preseason camp with the Jaguars before releasing a statement last Monday that said he had made a decision to retire. Albert would have owed the Jags $3.4 million as part of his signing bonus for retiring. He is also subject to fines of up to $40,000 per day for the time he was away from the team.

Minus Albert, the Jaguars have used Josh Wells and rookie second-round pick Cam Robinson at left tackle. The Dolphins likely would have released Albert before Jacksonville showed interest in acquiring him. He opened training camp as Jacksonville's left tackle, but then made a decision to retire.

Albert was set to earn a base salary of $8.875 million this upcoming season and $9.575 million in 2018. He has missed 20 games in the last five seasons, including four past year.
