Falcons signed LB Omar Gaither.
The longtime former Eagle couldn't make the Raiders out of camp this summer, and is close to finished. He's just a body for the injury-ravaged Falcons. Tue, Sep 17, 2013 03:58:00 PM

Raiders re-signed LB Omar Gaither.

29-year-old Gaither spent the second half of last season on Oakland's roster and knows Dennis Allen's defense. He's long been an ineffective linebacker.

Raiders signed LB Omar Gaither.

Gaither is taking the roster spot of Travis Goethel (injured reserve, knee surgery). A six-year veteran who appeared in 10 games for the Panthers last season, Gaither couldn't make it past final cuts in Texans camp. He'll be a reserve and special teamer in Oakland.

Texans signed LB Omar Gaither.

Gaither takes the roster spot of special teamer Keyaron Fox, who was placed on injured reserve. Although Gaither started 26 games with the Eagles in 2007-08, he's been limited to spot duty and special teams the past three years.

Panthers WLB LB Omar Gaither (knee) and backup LB Jason Phillips (calf) did not make the trip to Indianapolis for Week 12 against the Colts.

Undersized Jordan Senn (5'11/224) will start in Gaither's place. MLB Don Connor (shoulder) is a game-time call and the extremely favorable matchup for Indy's run game gets even better with this news. It's a mystery which back is going to lead the way for Indy at this time, but if reports can shed some light on the situation heading into game-time, owners should be ready to move. The Panthers are a sieve.

Panthers WLB Omar Gaither will return from his left MCL sprain and start against the Vikings in Week 8.

He'll retake the job from Jason Phillips, who was starting after Jason Williams got benched. The position hasn't produced much IDP value this season.
Fri, Oct 28, 2011 01:17:00 PM

Panthers WLB Omar Gaither has been diagnosed with a sprained left MCL, and will be sidelined 2-to-4 weeks.

Gaither's loss is bad news for a team already missing Thomas Davis and Jon Beason. Jason Williams, who started in Weeks 3 and 4, will take Gaither's place. Gaither will likely return following the Panthers' Week 9 bye. Opposing running backs remain a must-start against Carolina's 28th ranked run defense.
Mon, Oct 10, 2011 12:49:00 PM

Panthers LB Omar Gaither left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a leg injury.

Gaither had been running as the starter on the weak side following Thomas Davis' season-ending knee injury. He is questionable to return. Jason Williams has come on as his replacement.
Sun, Oct 9, 2011 02:30:00 PM

Panthers agreed to terms with LB Omar Gaither, formerly of the Eagles.

The Panthers stay aggressive. Gaither can't cover, but has a big body and some starting experience. Former Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, who now holds the same position in Carolina, is likely behind this one.
Fri, Jul 29, 2011 05:34:00 PM

Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News Journal expects the Eagles to part with LB Omar Gaither shortly.

Gaither was a healthy scratch in Week 3 after starting for Stewart Bradley in Week 2 and getting "failing grades" from the coaching staff. Mosher suspects that practice squad DT Jeff Owens or WR Chad Hall could be promoted.
Mon, Sep 27, 2010 04:08:00 PM

Eagles declared LB Omar Gaither, LB Antwan Barnes, third QB Mike Kafka, OT Austin Howard, CB Trevard Lindley, LB Keenan Clayton, DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, and TE Clay Harbor inactive for Week 3.

Stewart Bradley is back from his concussion, so Gaither is inactive.
Sun, Sep 26, 2010 03:45:00 PM

Eagles LB Omar Gaither (Lisfranc surgery) returned to the practice field on Tuesday.

Gaither sat out team drills but participated in position drills and defensive install. The Eagles' first-team defense featured Ernie Sims (WLB), Stewart Bradley (MLB), and Moise Fokou (SLB), and it figures to stay that way for the regular season. Gaither will open as a versatile reserve.
Tue, Jun 1, 2010 08:25:00 PM

Eagles re-signed restricted free agent LB Omar Gaither to a one-year, $1.176 million contract.

Versatile enough to play the weak side and middle, if in mostly ineffective fashion, Gaither is recovering from surgery to repair a Lisfranc fracture. He'll be on the roster bubble in training camp, and won't be counted on to start.
Wed, Mar 31, 2010 02:01:00 PM

Eagles extended the low tender offer to restricted free agent LB Omar Gaither.

Gaither, who underwent Lisfranc surgery in October, will make $1.176 million this year. Coming off the surgery, he's safe at the fifth-round cost.
Thu, Mar 4, 2010 12:46:00 PM

Eagles placed LB Omar Gaither (Lisfranc surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He can ask teammate Brian Westbrook about proper rehab tactics for a serious Lisfranc injury. The ailment will affect Gaither's stock on the 2010 free agent market. He is already a fairly poor run defender and has never been a playmaker. Gaither may struggle for more than a minimum deal.
