Jaguars C Brandon Linder, 30, announced his retirement Monday morning via his Instagram.
After being drafted by Jacksonville in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Miami, Linder played with the Jaguars his entire career. He played in 88 games over eight seasons for the Jaguars. Linder was a team captain and one of the most consistent centers in the game when on the field. But injuries took their toll on Linder, who missed over 30% of the Jaguars' games throughout his career. The Jaguars made the playoffs just once during Linder's tenure despite his best efforts.
Long-time backup Tyler Shatley will likely be penciled in as the starting center for the Jaguars, but the team could make further additions to bolster their interior.
Linder's retirement free ups $9.5 million in 2022 salary cap space for the Jaguars.
