    According to rotoworld he, and Al have sat down and come too the conclusion that it would be best for him too move on.

    I don't know what kind of money he'd be looking for, but he was Oaklands best run blocker the last few years.

    Anyone think he'd be a fit here?

    Lacks pass protection skills

    I am more worried about Brady staying on his feet and away from blindside hits than BJGE finding room to run

    Pass....

    I remember seeing Willy Mac bull rush him but it was more of a one push and Gallery was on his ass. But he was a rookie at the time.
    Maybe he could be a guard.....
    Naw forget it. Pass.

    Gallery has been playing guard for awhile to the best of my knowledge.

    Re: Robert Gallery to hit the market

    Above average guard, plays with nastiness, sort of like Mankins in that sense. Never really panned out at Tackle. Definitely an upgrade over Connolly. I think he played at LG for the Raiders this past season.

    Probably on the wrong side of 30 (check this).

    No thanks, and NO FREAKING WAY if he's seeking around $8M.

    Re: Robert Gallery to hit the market

    Gallery is 30, played LG last season. Wouldn't take him for $8 - but would for $4-5 million, which is only a slight bump from the $3.5 they were paying Kaczur.

    Gallery asked for $8M a season from the Raiders. Once they stopped laughing, they said "No thanks." He might be an option if Mankins isn't signed, but for a good bit less than what the Patriots would be offering to Mankins (and nowhere near $8M).

    I consider Robert Gallery one of the biggest 1st round busts in the last decade. A cautionary tale for anyone who thinks a 1st round linemen will necessarily make the Oline better...

    But hey, see what the kid's got.

    If the Pats were willing to pay what he's looking for, Logan Mankins would have a long term deal. /thread

    Reiss mentioned how BB was a big fan of Gallery's leading up to the draft.

    Quick-hit thoughts around NFL & Pats - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston

    I wonder if part of his early struggles were due to the awful franchise he went to. Maybe he received poor coaching or couldn't adjust to the dysfunctional work environment. Or maybe he just wasn't good enough to be a franchise tackle.

    Re: Robert Gallery to hit the market

    Exactly. He won't get $8 mil a season from anyone - I'd guess $4-5 mil is where he'll end up. That's doable if Belichick wants him.

    How they evaluate Gallery will indeed involve what shows up on film.

    It will also be the difference between what can be fixed and what cannot be. Enter Dante, right?

    Wouldn't rule it out, but only if he wants to make the Deal With The Devil that seems the hallmark of the Pats: Go to NE, be in contention every year, have career high points, but beware... once you leave the enchanted NE kingdom, the spell is broken. You may become Randy in Tennessee (or Givens in Tennessee, or Branch in Seattle, or Damien Woody kicking around in obscurity in where, Detroit? I have no idea whether Woody became good at some point. I just know nobody cares.)

    So two things - 1, does Gallery want to win enough to go to the home of Win for cheaper, and 2, is Gallery + Dante something different from Gallery without? That'll determine what NE will pay him to take a spin in the Big NE Resurrection Machine.

    With what's gone on already with the NE offensive line, I'd say nobody is off the board... but we don't know what money he'd demand in a NE deal. We've seen weird changes in demands to go to NE before. Can't count on it, but it's happened.

    He wants $8 million ... so i figure perhaps Bill might if he

    was in a good mood offer him 3.75 million ... which means he is not coming here.
