  • Brandon Linder: Announces retirement

    Linder announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

    Linder hangs up the cleats after eight NFL seasons, all of which were spent with the Jaguars. The starting center's retirement frees up $10 million in salary cap space for Jacksonville but leaves the team with another notable hole to fill on the O-line as April's draft approaches.

  • Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Activated from COVID list

    Linder (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Linder was sidelined for the final two games of the season while in the COVID-19 protocols. The 29-year-old played exactly nine games for the third time in the past four seasons as he continues to deal with injuries. Linder remains under contract for 2022, but he could be cut with no dead cap hit, so Jacksonville could opt to move on this offseason.

    Linder (back) was a full practice participant Friday.

    Linder suffered the injury in Week 13 and was inactive for Sunday's 20-0 loss to the Titans. However, it appears as if his absence will be limited to one full game, and he is in line to suit up Sunday against Houston. Linder should return to his role as Jacksonville's starting center.

    Linder suffered the back injury in Jacksonville's Week 13 matchup against the Rams, and he failed to practice in any capacity all week. As a result, he'll sit for Sunday's Week 14 matchup against Tennessee, with Tyler Shatley likely to take over starting duties at center.
