Could have been 4 other O-linmen's fault.

Grubbs in the #2 rated OG in free agency this year, and he and Nicks are listed as the only 5-Star guards.

I don't know much about Grubbs but from what I've read he's pretty solid. While I'd love to have Nicks back it may be better for the team to sign Grubbs and use the rest of the money to bolster the defense.

Nothing chronic as far I know, but has missed some games during past seasons - last season he at least missed some time due to turf toe.

The reason why I pointed it out was that while I was digging away on the Raven's board a couple of days ago to find out info on Grubbs, I read posts by the Ravens' fans who stated that he was injury-prone.

So, take it or leave it, I don't really have any proof either way.

He started 16 games for 4 years straight, then missed 6 games last year (PUP I think).

Yeah, I wouldn't really call that injury-prone.

I guess they were just trying to come up with excuses why him leaving wouldn't be such a bad thing.

The Ravens have made an offer to him according to RotoWorld, but they're really against the cap, so I don't know how competitive the offer is.

Would be an excellent replacement.

Loomis doing work. It's become a common saying for me.

I remember when Grubbs entered the draft, there were quite a few people on the board wanting him.
