He's a good center, someone will take a chance on him.
Baltimore is playing with a converted d-lineman as their center (with Birk out). I can see him landing there, if Birk doesn't come back from his injury.

What about Vernon Gholston? He was released by the Bears today, but seems to play better in 3/4 schemes.

Gurode has made 5 straight pro bowls as a center, but as already noted he's a power masher. Not a fit for our system, but some team will do real well to add him.

Plus he's 33. Shanahan's been going young to build something that will last.

Bust.

Kendrick is the best Gholston in the NFL.

Between Cofield and Anthony Bryant, we have NT covered. Jenkins is a big loss but we have depth this year.

He was released by the Jets in March and now by the Bears 5 months later. Dude can't play.

Define "play better" when he hadn't even recorded a sack for Jets. Hell, he hasn't even had many games started!!! He was drafted to be another great OLB, but has totally flopped. Pass.

Was thinking the same thing.

I thought the reason he did not succeed with the Jets was because they switched to the 3-4 when Rex Ryan got there. I think Gholston needs to disappear, play somewhere else (CFL) and come back later on.
