Jared freaking Gaither! I wish I could just do my job for 4 days in the year and put $9 mil in my back pocket!

Jared Gaither played in FOUR GAMES last season. FOUR! And what was his injuries? A full body cramp that kept him out of training camp. Some back spasms that is impossible to diagnose. He probably was going through menopause also.

Dude was a monster of a freaking man. He had all the potential in the world, but he had absolutely no motivation to play. He got his paycheck and then checked out.

    • davacho

      LMAO!

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Let this be a lesson to every NFL team, He was this way in college and got kicked out for bad grades, he was this way on Baltimore and they had to draft Oher after Jarred “Mystery back injury” kept him out a whole year (sound familiar to anyone) then KC rolls the dice and he quietly this time was cut for all the same reasons…..But KC only paid him freakin $175,000!!!!!!

    Why he ever got his huge deal is beyond me, one of the greatest leaps of faith ever by one of the worst GM’s ever = TT’s mess for 2013

      You are not exaggerating. This is a big mess for TT. I wouldn’t envy him, but it had to be done. The other players really were ticked off at this guy.

      • arnie

        Do you want to take bets on who signs him next?

          The Oakland Faiders!!

          • arnie

            LOL their kind of player….

        • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

          Correct me if I am wrong here. He is still under contract with the Chargers. We merely released him. If some other team picks him up for any amount of money, that will act as an offset to our cap hit. If they pay him $2 mill – then it would lower our cap hit liability down to $4 mill.

          I doubt if anybody picks him up. But you never know.

          • RussinSactown

            If Cleveland picks him up then they are odds on favorite to get Clowney next year

          • arnie

            Nope that only happens in a trade. the cenerio you’re thinking of only happens in baseball. i think?

          • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

            No. Gaither can’t get paid by both teams. If he gets money from the Chargers for 2013 and some other team signs him, that would affect the cap. But, now you have me thinking. I am going to check into it some more. It works that way with trades in the NFL. But this is simply a release. Can’t imagine that he could get paid from multiple teams at the same time–and we could not get some sort of offset on the cap hit.
            It is sort of a moot point, because no NFL team in its right mind will pick up what we agreed to pay Gaither.

          • arnie

            It’s the other way around. When the Chargers released him, that’s exactly what they did, “released all rights of his services”. He get’s the money he is owed after the March deadline. If another team picks him up, then they pick him up an pay him. The Chargers still take cap hit regardless. This is penalty organizations take, as negotiated by the CBA. it’s to get teams to think twice before paying out that big money, or releasing a player. Why? Because there are no guaranteed contracts in the NFL.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            i THINK that he would get paid by both teams, unless he is picked up off of waivers…. pretty sure he will get through waivers.

          • arnie

            But he wasn’t waived….

        • http://www.facebook.com/pete.spinning Pete Spinning

          The irony of AJ’s legacy would be that he goes somewhere else for peanuts, plays lights out, and makes the pro bowl… Like every other Charger that leaves the organization.. And for whatever reason, we always lose when we play said team.. I am thinking not in this case though.. Lol.

          • arnie

            Agreed. Not this time.

  • 619chargers4life

    is the Draft here yet

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i know right!

  • http://twitter.com/PowderBlue619 Saul Lopez

    I’m glad he’s gone but I have this feeling in the pit of my stomach like I was just robbed!!!! Hate this Guy!!!

  • JoseSD

    A couple years ago the top tackles weren’t gone until the 20s now the 3 best ones might be gone in the top 7. I’m not opposed to going Guard in the 1st and tackle in the second. McNeil was a second rounder and made the pro bowl his first 2 years, but it was his neck condition that made him drop to the second and made him retire early. I don’t know much about the second tier tackles any of them worth making our new LT?? Man Taylor Lewan and Jake Matthews really screwed us we could have probably had our choice between Lewan/Lane Johnson/Eric Fisher if those 2 entered the draft

    • http://www.facebook.com/pete.spinning Pete Spinning

      We should go guard, but if Johnson is there, they will be forced to take him… Unless TT has balls of steel, and doesn’t care what fans think.. Which would be really exciting!!!

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        Oh man… If he has balls like that, it would be so sick!!

      • Cgoodness13

        Sounds like a AJ move though :/ ignoring a position in need to do whatever he wants

        • http://www.facebook.com/pete.spinning Pete Spinning

          It kinda doesn’t matter. They will most likely go D in the first round, to strengthen the REAL core of this team. I don’t mean Rivers, either. It’s our young, and talented front seven. All 3 LT’s? Gone. Warmack? Gone. Even Cooper may be gone. So, Dline is looking more realistic. I just think Warmack is a beast! Problem is that you won’t get the results you want for a few years… after Rivers is gone, so it doesn’t make sense to me. We need a beast for the middle of that D. Vaccaro? Ogletree… Maybe Lotulelei? Oline looks like it will have to be addressed in the later rounds, barring an unexpected FA move, or a draft day miracle. There is good depth for oline later. I see TT trading down, rather than trading up for a LT. That would be the best move for the Chargers, no doubt.
