Grubbs in the #2 rated OG in free agency this year, and he and Nicks are listed as the only 5-Star guards.
You know, that in itself makes me wonder if he has a lot more potential than he's shown.

Grubbs is a All Pro caliber guard... don't really know how much more potential he can show. The Ravens paid Yanda a lot of money when they re-sign him and they're weak on the outside. They can't afford to pay Grubbs the money he's worth and improve the overall quality of their offensive line. Flacco is no Drew... he needs the quality tackles to keep him up right. They also need to upgrade their receivers... they just couldn't afford him.

From everything I have read, next to Nicks he is the best out there. I think this would ease the sting of loosing Nicks. Nicks is suppose to visit Tampa tomorrow. Hate to say it but, he may take the money. But I will hold out that he will be back. Just trying to keep the faith....

If we sign Grubbs then Nicks is gone and most likely to Tampa a division opponent. That alone is worth resigning him.

Need to keep the line solid, but can't afford to sign Nicks after signing Colston methinks. Grubbs would be a nice replacement... and could possibly free up some dollars for defense... we are going to try and address that defense, right?

Pro Bowl guard from the Ravens, the #2 OG in free agency, and the number 9 free-agent overall.

Played at Auburn, is only 28 years old.
