Just draft a high end LT and be done with it. Gross was always better at RT, it just kind of worked itself out when we got Otah and moved him over to LT and Wharton over to LG.

Jordan is not a top 5 tackle anymore. He is definitely paid more than he is worth. All that being said, some of the misinformation in this thread is over the top. Some examples follow:

No he's not...he's a middle grade LT coming off a major injury that is getting paid 8.5 million this year.

Coming off what major injury? And he got paid a lot more than 8.5 million this year.

If we can get him to not commit 33 false starts and holding penalties a game, then he might be useful.

I'll bet Gross has 6 or fewer penalties for the whole year. I can remember maybe 4 off the top of my head. In any case, he is not a highly penalized player.

would be like an 8mil cap hit if we cut him next year

Gross has a cap charge of $11.7 million next year, with only $1 million in signing bonus that hasn't already hit the cap. So we could knock around $10 million off our cap if he were replaced.

You may be right, cap stuff is kinda confusing. Did find this, I would assume misc bonuses are not guaranteed. In that case, he was only guaranteed $5 million total, which is actually pretty good.

btw way, it appears if we cut or trade dwill next year, it will cost us over $9.6 mil, if we keep him... about 9mil.

I tend to ignore anyone that suggests we cut our best players.

No point in even debating it.

Hahaha I love when kids post threads defending or hating on a player when they haven't looked at any stats or watched game tape.

The proofs in the pudding.

Will people please cite exacts on when Gross has shown to have lost it? I ask because some clowns were crying that he got murdered against KC when he only gave up two pressures, one that led to a 7yd gain and the other was the LaFell drop. Otherwise he kept his side of the line protected, and I saw some healthy runs when going off the left side.

I can't help but think most of the hate for Gross from people looking at two numbers (his age and his contract) instead of the actual player.

Gross is fine. People just want change for the sake of change. See Jon Gruden or Bill Cowher discussions.
