    Alright...maybe left field or maybe a brilliant idea. Let's bring another guy out of "retirement." Larsen is out for most if not all of this season and we have a glaring hole a LG.

    We broke BAs heart sending him to the Jags. Bring him back if he agrees to play LG next to Tunsil at LT.

    Would be a feel good signing and you have to imagine BA has something left in the tank, arguably more so than people like Mangold.

    yeah but he won't play for them, Seattle relinquished Marshawn Lynch - not hard to imagine the Jags being courteous and letting him walk.

    Albert was moved because he refused to play guard or RT. He went to Jax, from what I heard Fat, Lazy and uninspired he can stay retired.

    Your guess is as good as mine lol. Most likely Urbik or Steen would be my guess.

    Wonder if we get the pick back - well it's probably conditional anyway so would still be a TBD.

    Not a chance, Albert is washed up and retired.

    That'd be as stupid as going out and signing Jay Cutler . . .

    The article I just read on PFT says we will get the pick back if he plays in 3 games for the Jags this season.

    Branden Albert's decision to un-retire means #Dolphins would still get a conditional 2018 7th-rd pick from #Jaguars

    We're how many days into TC?

    No offense, but I've never understood the obsession with former Phins players. There's always a call to bring them back, regardless of ability, health, etc. The line needs a youth movement, not a broken old vet who has managed to play ONE complete season his entire career.

    It looks like Jaguars aren't sold on bringing him back so he maybe released. Would be good for locker room I would think.

    Jaguars still have to agree to take him back. No sure thing.

    If the trade were to be negated because of Albert's retirement, the 7th round pick no longer heading to Miami, shouldn't any money owed by Albert or to Albert be on Miami and not Jacksonville? If the trade is off because Albert retires it seems his rights should revert to Miami too. I know it doesn't work that way but it seems like it should.

    I usually not keen on signing players north of age 30, but in the case of doing on a one year situation to fill the gap of rookie who needs a year of experience or an injured player who's out for the season I guess I'm ok with that. However, I don't see Albert in MIami at guard.

    I like the idea and then heard that Albert is joining the Jags. I wonder who else is out there that might help? Mangold, I think, is still unsigned. Not much else.

    I'm laughing at this whole thread! :roflmao

    It's insane! This guy is shot, we don't need or want him, trust me! He has no heart for football and has let himself go but he found out he'll owe money if he retires. You'd think he could at least ask his agent about all this before going to the Jags/not reporting/retiring etc. Guy has no brain at all. But I love the retirement home comment. Hell, maybe we can get Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas back here too! :D

    Our next roster:

    QB's: Jay Cutler, Tony Romo, Joey Harrington
    RB's: Ronnie Brown, Patrick Cobbs, Travis Minor, Lousaka Polite
    WR's: Chris Chambers, Marty Booker, Davone Bess, Patrick Turner, Brian Hartline, Tedd (and the family) Ginn
    TE's: Randy McMichael, Jason Rader, John Nalbone
    OL's: Vernon Carey, L J Shelton, Nate Garner, Samson Satele, Anthony Alabi, Jemo James, Rex Hadnot, Joe Berger
    DL's: Kevin Carter, David Bowens, Vonnie Holliday, Jason Ferguson, Kendall Langford, Jared Odrick, Tony McDaniel, Matt Roth (thanks again, Nick!)
    LB's: Channing Crowder, Derrick Pope, Joey Porter, Donnie Spragan, Quinten Moses, Bobby Carpenter
    DB's: Jamar Fletcher, Jason Allen, Yeremiah Bell, Michael Lehan, Chris Clemons, Nolan Carroll, Tyrone Culver
    K/P's: Branden Fields, Olindo Mare (our all-time leading scorer!)

    This guy quit on his team and you all want him back in Miami? Come on now! He wanted a contract extension before training camp started, held out of OTAs, and retired 5 days in to camp; he's a quitter.

    The only reason he pulled back on the retirement is because of the bonus money he'd have to pay back the Jaguars lol. Now he can just show up, and either make all of the 10 million salary he's under contract for should they not cut him, or collect his 3.4 million dollar signing bonus cash and walk away happily haha

    If the Jags release him, I'd imagine he wouldn't have to pay the bonus portion back. That might be what it comes down to.

    I'm sure most of the players on the Jags probably don't want him there now too.

    BA is a season removed as a starting LT, it's not like this guy was retired or not playing last year. Sure, the line needs a youth movement but is that the direction we go with the current players on our roster? Do you want Steen or Urbik at LG????

    When did BA ever quit on THIS team? We traded him for what was essentially a swap for Julius Thomas, I don't fault the guy for not wanting to play for an organization like the Jags at this twilight phase of his career. BA loved Miami.

    really relevant post, maybe you could actually pick from players who did play last year and were starters at that.

    Failure to understand proper context. BA played last season as a starting LT. Joke all you want about your "All-Retirement" team but the comparisons are a joke. BA retired because he didn't want to play for the Jags, you know if Miami didn't trade him because we had Tunsil and needed more cap space that he would be a starter on the OL.

    Or we can roll with Steen, Ubrik, or Asiata at LG (who's struggling)

    Hilarious that people think this post is ridiculous when we literally just brought a QB out of retirement from last - who by the way played LESS than BA last year and is also older.

    What if his hearts in Miami and he wants to play lg for us to be a team player? He didn"t want to leave. He would atleast be better than what we have now. I don't see how anyone could dispute

    That's subjective. He may have started but Albert is no longer starting material. And that goes back into last year.

    Albert is way too old and slow to play guard for a zone blocking team.

    So, you are okay with a player who quit on the Jags? I wouldn't want a player on the team who quit on any team. Let's say it is the Jags and he hates the team, would he not harbor any resentment for Miami trading him there for nothing? Miami has moved on and this guy is done playing football.
