Patriots OG Robert Gallery has retired from football.
Per ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, Gallery "just didn't have it in camp." The much-maligned former tackle will finish his career with 103 starts. Though Gallery has been regarded as a bust as the No. 2 pick in the 2004 draft, he wound up emerging as one of the league's more underrated guards after being moved inside. Gallery never met expectations inherent for his draft position, but he certainly enjoyed a successful eight-year NFL career. Sat, Aug 4, 2012 05:54:00 PM

ESPN Boston believes OG Robert Gallery could be "on the outside" of the Patriots' roster bubble depending on the health of Logan Mankins and Brian Waters.

Reporter Mike Rodak gives Gallery a 75 percent chance of cracking the 53-man roster, but isn't sure he'd be able to beat out each of Dan Connolly, Ryan Wendell, Nick McDonald and Donald Thomas if both Mankins and Waters are healthy. Although there are indications the former No. 2 pick in the draft may be finished, it would ultimately be surprising if he were among the Pats' final cuts.

According to ESPN Boston, "there is some doubt" as to how much OG Robert Gallery has left to offer at this point.

The Pats view Gallery as an insurance policy for Logan Mankins (ACL surgery), but he won't be guaranteed a roster spot. Of Gallery's $1.8 million contract, only $400,000 is guaranteed. He can earn an additional $100,000 workout bonus.

Patriots agreed to terms with OG Robert Gallery on a one-year contract.

The Bill Belichick-Kirk Farentz relationship strikes again. Belichick has been a fan of Gallery since was selected at No. 2 overall in the 2004 draft. After missing 18 games over the past three seasons, Gallery may be no more than insurance in case Marcus Cannon does indeed stay at tackle. The Pats are tentatively expected to re-sign Brian Waters as well.

Seahawks released OL Robert Gallery.

Gallery was signed to a three-year, $15 million after the lockout broke. But a groin injury kept him out of four games early in the year and he never seemed to recover. The move saves the Seahawks $4.6 million against the cap and they could be looking at old friend Steve Hutchinson as a replacement at left guard. The Raiders could consider a reunion with Gallery after cutting RG Cooper Carlisle on Wednesday.

Seahawks LG Robert Gallery (groin) impressed in his return to game action last week.

"He looked quick and looked flexible," coach Pete Carroll said. "For his first time playing in five weeks he played well." Seattle's offensive line has been progressing steadily since a slow start in September.

Seahawks LG Robert Gallery is out 4-6 weeks, at least, after undergoing surgery on his groin.

The Seahawks are saying it's not an I.R. kind of situation yet, but that could be a possibility in due time. Gallery's body appears to be breaking down at age 31, as he's missed 15 of his last possible 34 games and is now out indefinitely. The Seahawks will continue to lack continuity on the offensive line, which is a big concern in a zone-blocking scheme. Rookie James Carpenter is staying at right tackle. Paul McQuistan is the new left guard.

Seahawks LG Robert Gallery (knee) has resumed practicing.

"That was great to see him back out," coach Pete Carroll said. "We took care of him, but he got physical, full-speed work today, which was good." Gallery figures to return in Week 2 against Pittsburgh. He'll have his hands full immediately against Steelers mammoth NT Casey Hampton and RE Brett Keisel.

Seahawks LG Robert Gallery was forced from Friday's preseason finale with a sprained knee.

He will undergo an MRI this afternoon. HC Pete Carroll said the injury is "significant enough" that he's unsure of Gallery's status for Week 1. The Seahawks' offensive line has been a mess all preseason, so it would be quite a blow were they to lose their new left guard just eight days before the start of the season.

Seahawks agreed to terms with OG Robert Gallery on a three-year contract.

Gallery has been expected to reunite with offensive line coach Tom Cable since walking away from the Raiders in early March. An ideal fit for Cable's zone-blocking scheme, Gallery should slot in at left guard with third-rounder James Carpenter at right guard. Seattle has done an admirable job of revamping an over-matched O-Line.

The Bengals have reportedly "joined the bidding" for free agent OG Robert Gallery, along with the Seahawks.

Seattle has been considered the prohibitive favorite for Gallery since early March. The Bengals figure to lose Evan Mathis, leaving only overmatched Nate Livings and aging Bobby Williams at guard.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Lions are one of the teams that may be in pursuit of free agent OG Robert Gallery.

It's a curious idea. The Lions are set at guard with Rob Sims and Stephen Peterman, so perhaps they'd be looking at the 6-foot-7, 325-pound Gallery as a right tackle with Gosder Cherilus coming off microfracture surgery. Ultimately, we don't expect Gallery to land in Detroit. Seattle has always been his most logical destination due to ties with new Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable.

CSN New England's Tom Curran hears the Patriots "remain enamored" with free agent OG Robert Gallery.

The report suggests Bill Belichick & Co. have been fans of Gallery for some time. Franchise player Logan Mankins should be locked in at left guard for one more year, and now-retired Stephen Neal's right guard spot was presumed to be filled by versatile Dan Connolly. A Gallery signing would send Connolly back to the bench.

Seahawks GM John Schneider plans to pursue a starting left guard in free agency.

Seattle has four spots filled: LT Russell Okung, C Max Unger, RG John Moffitt, RT James Carpenter. Our best guess as to Seattle's next starting left guard is free agent Robert Gallery, with whom new position coach Tom Cable has plenty of history. Gallery is injury prone and probably only has 2-3 decent years left, however, so two pickups at the position could make sense.

The Everett Herald's John Boyle believes there's a "good chance" the Seahawks will end up signing free agent OG Robert Gallery.

This has been the assumption all along, with former Raiders head coach Tom Cable now leading the offensive line in Seattle. The Seahawks' rebuilt O-Line could look like: LT Russell Okung, LG Gallery, C Max Unger, and RT James Carpenter, with veteran Mike Gibson or a free agent slotting in at right guard.
