Today saw yet another surprising retirement announcement take place in the NFL, this time from Brandon Albert. Meanwhile, the arizona cardinals and Seattle Seahawks both made key signing and the Baltimore Ravens played quarterback roulette.

Brandon Albert's surprising decision

Left tackle Brandon Albert announced his retirement today, without ever playing a down for his new team. In March, the Miami Dolphins traded Albert for a seventh-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The team will now get that pick back since he retired. Albert skipped Jaguars offseason conditioning and OTAs because he wanted a new contract, which the Jaguars would not give him.

The 32-year-old leaves the game after having spent six seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and three with the Dolphins. In his career he played in 120 games, starting 118 of them while becoming a top left tackle. He was selected to go to the Pro Bowl in 2013 and 2015.

Cardinals sign Tramon Williams

The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran cornerback Tramon Williams. Williams spent his first eight seasons with the Packers before spending the last two with the Cleveland Browns. The move comes after Justin Bethel hyperextended his knee and Ronald Zamort tore his ACL, ending his season.

The 34-year-old is expected to compete for the number two corner spot with Bethel and Brandon Williams.

For his career, he has 576 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, 30 interceptions, 128 passes defended, 5 forced fumbles, 9 fumble recoveries, and a defensive touchdown.

Seahawks resign Mike Morgan

The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed linebacker Mike Morgan to a one-year deal. Last season, Morgan was a key part time play in nickel situations but had most of his season hampered due to a sports a hernia he needed surgery on.

The 29-year-old has spent six seasons with the team. Last season he started three games, after starting that amount in his first five seasons. He recorded his first career interceptions last year.

Ravens waived recently signed quarterback

Three days ago the Baltimore Ravens signed unknown arena league quarterback David Olson as Joe Flacco deals with a back injury. Now, the team has waived Olson and signed journeyman quarterback Josh Woodrum to act as their third string QB.

The 24-year-old Woodrum was undrafted out of Liberty in 2016. He has already spent time with the Giants, Colts, Bears, and Bills in the last 15 months.
