Gross

Gross got abused in the KC game. What do you guys think as far as his future here is? I really think we need to cut ties and his salary is just the cherry on top, but even if he restructured or wasn't paid as much is he pretty much out of here? Or will he stay around for another year just to be a vet for a newbie we get. He seems to be going downhill quick and he is 32 (?).

Not out of the question at all that he's a salary cap cut. If he goes, we gotta find a decent replacement because god knows that guy isn't currently on the roster.

I am fine with restructuring not cutting; he is still above average to me (and one of the team leaders which we have very little of). it is very hard to find a top LT especially since we might not be picking in the top 3 this year look at the eagles, redskins, cowboys, Chicago they are still looking for a LT. i say leave him on a restructured deal for now and fix other glaring holes

Cut. Him and Gamble are probably gone, which sucks because they are such long tenured vets. Gross' play doesn't warrant all of that money, and Gamble's absence hasn't really affected our CB play too drastically, meaning his $ will be better spent elsewhere. It sucks, but it's the nature of the beast.

The problem with all this is Gross' play this season has shown LT is a GLARING hole....

He's probably going to be a cap casualty, but I think he's still the best guy on our line except for Ryan. LT is always going against the best edge rusher so even though he looks worse than anyone he's also getting the hardest matchup. The main problem is that we paid him way too much money like everyone else. All our problems start up top

I think that this could have been included in the other 6 threads about what vets might get cut during the upcoming offseason.....that is what I think.

I'd restructure Gross. It's not easy to find a solid LT. Does anyone think Campbell could be our future LT?

Restructure the contract don't cut him. Who is going to protect the blind side than? He isn't top notch anymore but he's not garage. We have to restructure so the money is fair and keep him another year or two while we search for a good replacement.

You mean the thread about cutting 6 guys, because I don't see 6 threads on cutting players, I see two and one is defensive.And those threads get sidetracked. I do see threads debating a plyers Japanese name and another debating Luke's sexiness, maybe you should post in those. Gross is bit different for fans than say Norman. Gross is the reason Cam is hurries a lot of the times, which is a bit different than what we are used to seeing. LT is the most important position on the Oline, and arguable on the offense period (besides QB).

But I get it, you have nothing better to do, I am in a waiting room so neither do I.

Unless we get lucky and draft a replacemnet or pick one up in FA, I see him being here another 1-2 seasons. We have no one on the roster to replace him what so ever. Hell we need a RG and RT still.

not without a solid option to rely on.

you don't cut unless you KNOW you've got someone at least as good or better lined up.

and no...that's not easy to do.
