Why has Gross not signed yet?

21 posts in this topic

We better not franchise Gross. We need to sign him to a long term deal. Hopefully it'll be Peppers that we franchise.

Don't think Gross will play along, though.

In the Fanchising or the long term deal ?

If we give him a nice fat contract I don't see why he wouldn't.

We cant even talk to Gross until FA begins.

I have a feeling the team wanted to see how Gross played on the left side this season, before offering up the monster deal he wanted. They franchised him, and he delivered. Now, the team won't hesitate on locking him up long term.

I'll be very surprised if he walks in FA. Could he get more money elsewhere? Probably. Any good FA that hits the market gets overpaid. But, will he want to leave? I doubt it. I think he'll be here for a while.

We'll lock him up, I don't see us losing Peppers AND him. Gross played great this year, he proved all the doubters wrong (me included) and has earned the paycheck. Not to mention he's a leader on that line and he has fire and heart. It's not every day you see o-lineman get excited during a game after a good run play, but Gross does it a lot.

Almost forgot. I was one of the doubters of Gross. I didn't think he'd be very good on the left side. Let me have my helping of crow.

Haha exactly. No, we keep Gross, we have too. Our run game is the best thing we have, keeping it elite is crucial. Gross is durable too, and he brings leadership too. The guy was a All-Pro, Pro-Bowl you can say it's BS, but All-Pro is the elite, Gross is elite.
