    This is too rich.

    San Diego takes the chance and now pays dearly for it. Gaithers history with the Ravens should have been for the chargers to not give him a contract. Also the chiefs let gaither go last year because of his health issues. Gaither is making moiney this year just like when he played for the Ravens. He knows how to work in the nfl without playing all the games , bet he doesn't get another chance to play in the nfl unless his contrac t is base on games played.San Diego will have to regroup after this year anyway, they have major positions to refill.

    Some pretty strong comments from the Chargers beat writer from a couple of days ago:

    @UTKevinAcee@utkevinacee
    Jared Gaither was brilliant vs. former team last year. As Chargers prepare to play Baltimore again, he has progressed from training room to side field. Will he play Sunday or keep stealing money? I'd never say something that strong re: guy's health w/o knowing exactly how many of his teammates feel.

    If he had any commitment in him at all, he would still be here. He and Joe would be growing together, ala Unitas and Parker. What a tragedy and waste of talent.

    Gaither would have demanded a lot of money had he stayed with us and actually played in the year he sat out. I honestly don't think the FO ever intended to extend him because of his character flaws, he just wasn't a Harbaugh guy, or a true Raven. We would have given up some players, like Yanda, to keep Gaither, and there was no way the FO would have done that. The guy has heaps of talent, but he really is just a waste of space at this point.

    If he was committed, we would pay him. You don't let talented left tackles who want to continue to get better simply walk away. I think we have seen that this organization finds a way to keep those players they want, so Yanda may have also been able to be extended.

    Gaither was so unmotivated/lazy that the Ravens had to go to his apt. and get him up to drive him to practice. Lots of potential and I'm pissed the Vince Wilford hit him illegally and injured him. He was doing great in games up until that point.

    But that trade off would have been worth it. A top notch LT is harder to find than a good G. If Gaither wasn't such a fucking head case the FO would have paid to keep him. Gaither has the physical skill set to be one of those untouchable players, he's just lazy and immature.

    Gaither could be an all pro tackle if he wasn't a lazy pos. He got his money, and I think he's done playing.

    I really just don't understand it. He has the skillset to be a top LT in this league, AND get paid for it. He's tossing away millions and millions cause he's a lazy pos. I just don't understand. Hope he hasn't bred yet, what a oxygen thief.

    Oh I don't disagree with you. Gaither had so much talent and had some great games as a Raven. He has something that Oher will simply never have. You just can't find 6'10, quick feet, and brute strength out there, he is truly the definition of a dancing bear. However, if he really wasn't a head case, hypothetically speaking, he would have probably been a top 15 pick in the draft, because he was that good in college. He didn't enter the regular draft because of his stupidity. We wouldn't have had a chance to get him if he wasn't a head case.

    Had he really changed while playing for us, I am sure we would have extended him. Him at LT, with Oher on the other side would have been great, especially with Yanda and Grubbs on the inside. We could have had the best Oline in football today (KO would have replaced Grubbs), and as pointed out by someone else, I think we could have still kept Yanda. After all, we did invest like 3 million in Bryant McKinnie last year.

    Realistically, he has been a waste of space for the majority of his NFL career. If you are irrepairably hurt [the mythical bad back] then get GTFO of the NFL! The real dofusses in this saga are KC & SD. Fool the Ravens, shame on you; fool the Chiefs & Chargers, shame on them!
    I love that the SD beat writer alludes to the rest of the Chargers' seeing through Gaither's act.
    Betcha Suggsy, saw thru it, too. Maybe IR is the safest place for JG on Sunday?

    btw: props to SDS for stickin' by his guy in this rage-filled thread - dance w/ the one what brought you!

    you obviously are forgetting the nearly two years of solid- to - great play he had here, as well as the 5 games for San Diego. He certainly wasn't a waste of space the FEW TIMES that he was a top 10 left tackle playing for peanuts.

    Listen, I understand he's a Lazy POS, and Baltimore fans were watching the O's game that night, but anyone that saw him get hurt in the second to last snap of that game(it was sunday or monday night, can't remember the opponent right now) would KNOW FOR SURE the injury is REAL. Dude is hurt. Sucks to be him, and anyone on his team paying his salary. There is absolutely NOTHING mythical about his injury.

    And Suggs didn't see through anyhting last year when they played, he didn't get past Gaither once all game.

    I get it, we're supposed to hate him, but geez, he could have been one of if not the best LT in football. He ISN'T and almost certainly WON'T, but he could have and we had him here for peanuts. It's a missed opportunity.
