    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.
