The Jacksonville Jaguars will get back the 2018 seventh-round draft pick they traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for Branden Albert. Albert reportedly had to play in three games for the seventh-round pick to officially be the Dolphins’ to keep.

Albert, 32, was a two-time Pro Bowl selection in 2013 and 2015. He started 118 of 120 career games after originally being selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 15th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. He started 83 of 85 games during his six seasons with the Chiefs.

Following the 2013 season, during which Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles totaled 1,980 all-purpose yards, Albert was selected to his first Pro Bowl and, after entering free agency, signed a five-year contract with the Miami Dolphins on March 11, 2014.

After appearing in nine games in his first season with Miami, Albert was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury on November 10, 2014. Albert returned to form in 2015, starting 14 games, and was named to his second Pro Bowl after the Dolphins combined to rush for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns.
