Why has Gross not signed yet?

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.

lots of defensive ends as well

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.

Lurking is Mr. Richardson's favorite person...Dan Snyder.

Snyder needs Gross and Peppers.
