Ravens place first-round tender on Gaither

If a team wants to pry offensive tackle Jared Gaither away from the Baltimore Ravens, it will take a first-round draft pick to do it.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Ravens tendered Gaither at the first-round level.

The Baltimore Sun had previously reported that the Ravens would probably tender Gaither at the first- and third-round level, but the team apparently decided not to go quite that far.

The Ravens acquired Gaither with a fifth-round pick in the 2007 supplemental draft. Gaither started 11 games in 2009.

  1. Thats a good move by the ravens organization. He is a good tackle. Too bad he has to play in that gay ass purple still.

  2. Honestly, as a Raven fan I would not be sad to see Gaither get picked up by another team if we get another a first round pick, Gaither is young and semi-athletic but he has had a history of injuries not significant injuries but nagging ones that make him miss two or three games a year so Gaither for a first round pick in a tackle deep draft would not be bad because the Ravens can move Oher back to LT and draft a new tackle but I don’t believe Gaither is going anywhere except to RT in a few years but I do like Gaither but he lacks a mean streak that is required to be an effective tackle in the NFL and for that matter in college but Gaither is a fine young tackle that will be successful in Baltimore or wherever he plays.

  3. What about the Cards using their first on this guy, they need huge OT help and at least he is established..
    What about the 49ers, they have two firsts…?
    Or even the Seahawks?

  4. Basically a setup to trade Marshall for Gather and possibly trade-up in the draft.
