    Agreed.

    My concern is, he gets the nice contract and its back to slacking. It's hard for me to trust that a guy who hasn't shown a lot of drive until this offseason is going to now sustain it for the duration of a new contract. Hope I'm wrong, but for me, it's easy to see him pulling a Woodley.

    He definitely wont be seeing that kind of money.

    He seems to have matured as a player and as a person....woodley, was damn near unblockable as a rookie and had some great production for a few years and ended up getting lazy.

    Gilbert has been very up and down, but he looks like a grown man now rather than a 21 year old who is lost on the field

    Again, looks...we still have to see all this improvement on the field

    I hear he got into a scuffle with Cam Thomas, though. Better hope that his dorm room bed isn't set on fire while he is sleeping in it, and he doesn't get thrown off a moving team bus on the way to the game.

    If Munchak can't make a starting NFL caliber lineman out of Adams then he won't be here long. He has no versatility. A guy like Johnson...Who has been looking good in camp....Will unseat him. I don't think it happens in '14 but if they make a commitment to Gilbert...The seat gets hotter.
    2017 Draft:
    1st Njoku TE
    2nd Rivers or Willis OLB
    3a Davis ILB
    3b Witherspoon or Griffin CB
    4th Dobbs QB
    5th Conner RB
    6th Nicholson S
    7th Ebukam OLB

    Gilbert has never been as bad as so many of you want to portray. At the end of last season, DeCastro and Gilbert were doing a very good job on the right side.

    I've always thought he mostly sucked, except for a few stretches of fair/average play.

    Why would we want to overpay Gilbert just because Tennessee decided to overpay the sucktastic Oher? Gilbert doesn't even have a Sandra Bullock movie about him (unless you count "Gravity" when Gilbert gets big enough to exert his own gravitational pull).

    Ooh, wait. This Sandy Bullock game is fun. Dri Archer would be "Speed." David DeCastro could be "Demolition Man." We've got "Two Weeks Notice" for all of the camp fodder as we approach roster cutdown day. And of course, there is always "Crash" which of course could only go to Ben Roethlisberger.

    Creative post, but the market value for a starting RT is now about 5-5.5million/year. Guys like Loadholt and Anthony Davis are making 6-7million
