    Not just the Ravens. The Chiefs also made the right move. The paid him league minimum and cut his ass once this nonsense started

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.
    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.

    Is anybody REALLY surprised? Come on...

    One of my co workers is a huge Chargers fan and he told me that the word out there is Gaither will likely be out the door with several other players, coaches and staff.

    Apparently there are also rumors out there that Phillip Rivers has asked to be traded or released after this season.

    It all depends on the health of his bck, I would never contract someone with back problems, no way to know what you're getting. Feel bad for everyone involved, he's not lazy, he's hurt. He needs to retire.

    Fixed that for you! Seriously, you are entitled to your own opinion, but many Raven fans believe he is as lazy as they come.

    Id agree and thats why a great tackle like mcneill is still available. Why theyd take a chance on one back injury vs another kind of intrigued me. As much as i blame injury i cant say its not without some fault of his own however.

    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.

    I think the Chargers had a lot of guaranteed money for Gaither in the contract he signed, it was around 13.5 million I believe. Yes he could have had a lot more than that had he actually played week in week out. But if he really wanted to, he could hit the road and take that 13.5 million and do whatever he likes with it. While guys like you and I bust our asses off in the real world and will never see anything close to a million dollars let alone 13.5 million for doing nothing.
