Jordan Gross, UFA, Carolina Panthers
A first round pick in 2003, Gross earned a starting role in his rookie season and held that role as a tackle for the entire season. His ability to step in and play well right away paid off for the Panthers, as the team put together a run to an NFC Championship. Hes continued being a starter since that rookie season and is a solid player. Carolina slapped the franchise tag on him for this season, and chances are he will be another team come 09.


He's only 28, he has experience in the zone blocking system, he's been incredibly durable (never missed a game), and he has the versatility to play both tackle positions. With Tausher going on IR and being a FA this offseason, is there any reason we shouldn't sign this guy?

I'd much rather go the route of defensive linemen.

Like I said before, I really like this guy. Like you said, he's never missed a game, played in our scheme and is just a good player. He's not amazing like Faneca, so I asume we won't have to pay tht much.

With Cliffy and Tauscher not getting any younger, we need at least one Tackle in FA, I think. Maybe put him at Gaurd for as long as our veterans are still playing, but with this injury, and Cliffy just not performing like he used to, we need someone to come in and play soon.

I used to always trade for him when I played Madden franchises. Good player.

He's gonna get a fat contract. I would love it if the Packers gave him that contract. One area that I don't mind overspending on is LT. We have been spoiled for a while with a good LT. With Clifton's drastic decline this season, it has become increasingly evident how valuable a great LT can be (see Minnesota game).

Let's hope Ted Thompson is willing to break the bank for this guy, because we really need him....

and Haynesworth....

and Peppers...

and Knowshon Moreno....

(man I'm greedy!)

I'm guessing he gets franchised making hopes a moot point.

he was franchised last off season I believe, so they can't do it again.
