Recent News's Ian Rapoport reports free agent OG Ben Grubbs' neck injury is likely career ending.
Grubbs suffered the injury in Week 7. He was released with a "failed physical" designation in the opening days of free agency. Now 32, Grubbs was the No. 29 overall pick of the 2007 draft. He was one of the best guards in the league for the Ravens and Saints. Grubbs hasn't made any official announcements about his football future. Mon, Jun 13, 2016 02:21:00 PM

Chiefs released LG Ben Grubbs (neck) with a failed physical designation.

Grubbs signed a "four-year, $24 million" deal after the Chiefs acquired him in a trade last offseason. Grubbs was solid over the first half of the season, but he ended the year on injured reserve with a neck injury. This move suggests the injury is serious. Cutting Grubbs saves the Chiefs $1.1 million against the cap, but leaves behind $5.2 million in dead money.

Chiefs placed LG Ben Grubbs on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Grubbs has missed the past five weeks and wasn't making any progress. Details of the injury aren't known, but the loss is big, as Grubbs rebounded after his trade from the Saints and was playing very well as a run blocker. Jeff Allen has been starting at left guard in Grubbs' absence, but also got hurt this past Sunday against the Bills. Grubbs, 31, is signed through the 2018 season.
Wed, Dec 2, 2015 12:54:00 PM

Chiefs signed LG Ben Grubbs to a new four-year, $24 million contract with $8 million guaranteed.

Another $3 million becomes guaranteed if Grubbs is on the roster in March 2017. Acquired from the Saints for a fifth-round pick on Thursday, 31-year-old Grubbs should upgrade a line that had been in flux the last two seasons. Kansas City should still be in the market for offensive line help.
Fri, Mar 13, 2015 11:33:00 PM

Chiefs acquired LG Ben Grubbs from the Saints in exchange for a 2015 fifth-round pick.

It's wheeling and dealing season. Grubbs was in danger of getting cut by the Saints due to his insanely-high $9.6 million cap number as he enters year four of a five-year, $36 million deal. The Chiefs have lost a ton of offensive linemen in free agency the past two years. Grubbs, a two-time Pro Bowler, will solidify it. He hasn't missed a start in three seasons as one of the league's better guards.

Saints LG Ben Grubbs has restructured his contract, slashing his base salary from $5.2 million to $1.2 million.

Like teammate Marques Colston, Grubbs' missing $4 million should be turned into a signing bonus that's pro-rated over the final four years of his deal. That would save the Saints $3 million in cap space this season.

Saints signed OG Ben Grubbs, formerly of the Ravens, to a five-year, $36 million deal.

The deal includes a $10 million signing bonus, and $16 million "fully guaranteed." Grubbs provides the Saints a soft landing after they lost LG Carl Nicks to the Bucs, but at a surprisingly steep cost. Grubbs landed just $11.5 million less total money, and will average roughly $2 million less per season. Grubbs graded out as Pro Football Focus' sixth-best left guard in 2011, but Nicks was significantly better in both run and pass blocking. Nicks is also more than a year younger. The Ravens will likely now focus on signing free agent Evan Mathis to replace Grubbs.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 10:32:00 AM

According to the Washington Times, free agent OG Ben Grubbs is "in play" for the Redskins.

Whether the Skins have enough cap space to enter a bidding war for Grubbs is in question after the signings of Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. The Saints were reportedly pushing hard to sign Grubbs after losing Carl Nicks.
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 02:16:00 PM

Free agent OG Ben Grubbs will reportedly visit the Saints.

Grubbs isn't going to match the contract that Carl Nicks will land, but there's not much difference in quality of play. He would make for a fine fallback option if the Saints can free up the money to sign him away from the Ravens.
Tue, Mar 13, 2012 05:51:00 PM

Free agent LG Ben Grubbs is expected to surpass Ravens RG Marshal Yanda's five-year, $32 million contract on the open market.

"Barring a last-minute deal that's not expected to transpire," Grubbs is expected to leave Baltimore for a mega contract. In addition to the previously mentioned Bears and Cowboys, the Carroll County Times lists the Browns and Bucs as likely suitors.
Tue, Mar 13, 2012 10:41:00 AM

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens have made "what both sides acknowledged" was a substantial offer to impending free agent LG Ben Grubbs.

According to the Sun, "all indications" are that there is not "much leeway" to expand on the offer. If Grubbs turns it down, he's almost certainly headed to the open market. Unless he finds his market unexpectedly depressed by the presence of fellow free agent LG Carl Nicks, Grubbs will likely be moving on from Baltimore.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 09:22:00 AM

The Carroll County Times mentions the Bears and Cowboys as potential suitors for free agent LG Ben Grubbs.

Both clubs have interior offensive line needs, particularly Dallas. Chicago would likely demote former first-round pick Chris Williams out of the starting lineup should it land someone like Grubbs. Grubbs, 28, has started all but 10 games in his five-year career. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 12 guard in 2011.
Thu, Mar 1, 2012 10:15:00 AM

Although the Ravens' talks with free agent LG Ben Grubbs have been "very positive," his player rep suggests no deal is close.

"Ben is extremely highly regarded in this league," the agent said. "He's in the prime of his career and may or may not have another opportunity to sign another significant contract. He needs to be sure that he explores all his options." Grubbs looks headed for the open market, at which point the Ravens will likely get outbid. Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer suggested late Tuesday that the division-rival Bengals could give Grubbs a look.
Wed, Feb 29, 2012 10:50:00 AM

Free agent LG Ben Grubbs' player rep says he had a "very positive meeting" with the Ravens at the Scouting Combine.

Grubbs appeared as good as gone earlier this offseason, but the Ravens appear to be at least making an effort to retain their Pro Bowl left guard. With $32.5 million already committed to RG Marshal Yanda, however, it reamins more likely than not that Grubbs will be playing elsewhere in 2012.
Tue, Feb 28, 2012 10:15:00 AM

The Carroll County Times' Aaron Wilson is "hearing" the Bears will be a potential landing spot for free agent LG Ben Grubbs if he is not re-signed by the Ravens.

Grubbs has been expected to reach the open market, but coach John Harbaugh insisted in a radio interview last week that the Ravens were going to "really make a run" at re-signing him. The Bears ended 2011 with former undrafted free agent Edwin Williams at left guard.
