The move is just the latest in a strange two weeks for the two-time Pro Bowler, who abruptly announced his retirement on July 31 and then approached the team about returning in the future days later.
“During my short stint in Jacksonville, I quickly realized that they are working incredibly hard to turn the corner and I truly believe that they will find success in the coming years,” Albert said in a statement announcing his retirement less than two weeks ago. “I look forward to returning to Miami, the place that I now call ‘home,’ and running my businesses, while giving back to the community. While this chapter of my life is coming to an end, my story is still going and I hope you’ll follow along. I will be furthering and finishing my education. God bless and Godspeed.”
Albert was scheduled to make $8.8 million in 2017 and $9.5 million in 2018. The former Pro Bowler would have owed the Jaguars $3.4 million in salary if he would have stayed retired.
