Yes! Love that we have a left tackle. Jared Gaither, 4 years. Let’s hope we signed the guy that kicked ass for the Bolts last year, not the guy that got cut from the Chiefs after one snap.
Think the big boy is excited? (He’s 6’9″, 340lbs) Here’s his tweet after the signing:

Bolt up, indeed. Here’s the crazy thing about Gaither… Pro Football Talk puts out a list called The Free Agent Hot 100. Marcus McNeil is no. 27 on that list… Jared Gaither is no. 5. NUMBER FIVE. The only dudes ahead of him on the list are huge names. Peyton Manning, Mario Williams, Vincent Jackson, and Mike Wallace…in that order. So, is this a big signing for the Chargers? You’re damn right it is.
