The Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday waived OT Jared Gaither and a day later news is coming out that he's headed to...the San Diego Chargers. Indeed, the Chargers have picked Gaither up off waivers and put OT Marcus McNeill on injured reserve, ending his season.
I'm not really sure how to feel about this move because we don't know whether Gaither can play. He saw some spot-duty here and there for the Chiefs but never really made it onto the field. The Chargers, obviously needed an offensive tackle, are apparently willing to take the chance that A.) he's healthy and B.) he can still play.
But it's going to be interesting to see if he can get on the field in San Diego. If he plays, and plays well, that's gonna be tough to swallow.
There was a brief window the week Gaither signed with the Chiefs that we thought we has going to end up with the Raiders so he's almost made the complete sweep around the AFC West.
