Roundup: Why is Gaither available?

Jared Gaither keeps popping up on the rumor mill as one of the restricted free agents who is drawing interest from teams around the league.

Gaither was tendered with a first-round pick by the Ravens, and Jason La Canfora noted several weeks ago a second-round pick could get the conversation started. All indications are the Ravens appear willing to move Gaither, and Ken Murray of The Baltimore Sun might have offered up one of the reasons why when he referred to Gaither’s work ethic as “half-baked.”

Still, a starting left tackle last season, Gaither represents one of the more intriguing restricted free agents — as well as one who sounds like a realistic option for teams that miss out on the top tier of tackles in the draft’s first round.
