Any idea how Gaither is holding up? I seem to remember he had some sort of health issue this year. Found the answer to my own question.

Quote:
Baltimore's 2010 run-blocking struggles were widely attributed to Gaither's season-long absence, which resulted from repeated flareups of a thoracic disc in his back. A league source tells NFL.com's Jason La Canfora that Gaither "is now healthy." The Ravens won't overpay him after the injury.

i like the idea of champ being on our team for a couple years but at what cost? he's a pro bowl corner and won't come cheap despite his age.

I wouldnt mind picking up Gaither, but I dont think we sign a FA of Champ's caliber AND draft a first round corner unless we let Ike hit free agency, which I don't think is happening...

Rookies don't start in our defense and Champ would only be here for 2 years at the most! So yes, you take a CB in the 1st or 2nd...
