Buccaneers signed RT Gosder Cherilus to a two-year, $7 million contract.

Released by the offensive line-challenged Colts in late July, Cherilus was passed over by the similarly tackle-needy Bills and Lions in ensuing free agent tryouts. The 31-year-old graded out as one of the worst offensive tackles in football last season, per PFF's charts. Cherilus does address a need in Tampa Bay, where the team recently lost RT Demar Dotson to a six-week MCL injury. The Bucs are going to (again) field one of the NFL's worst O-Lines.

The Bucs will host free agent OT Gosder Cherilus on Monday.

Cherilus visited the Lions and Bills immediately after he was cut by the Colts at the end of July. The Buccaneers' sudden interest in Cherilus may indicate concern with RT Demar Doston's knee injury sustained in the preseason opener.
Sun, Aug 16, 2015 09:17:00 PM

Free agent RT Gosder Cherilus is scheduled to visit with the Lions.

Cherilus left his Buffalo visit without a contract. He’s expected to meet with multiple teams before signing. Cherilus would provide insurance behind RT LaAdrian Waddle in Detroit, where he spent the first five years of his career.

Free agent RT Gosder Cherilus is visiting the Bills on Wednesday.

Just released by the Colts over the weekend, Cherilus would be an upgrade on sophomores Cyrus Kouandjio and Seantrel Henderson at right tackle in Buffalo as long as he's healthy. Cherilus, 31, has battled chronic knee trouble since undergoing microfracture surgery a couple seasons back in Detroit.

Colts released RT Gosder Cherilus.

It only took Indianapolis two years to throw in the towel on Cherilus after signing him to a five-year, $35 million contract in 2013. Following a rough 2014 season, Cherilus' chronic knee woes prevented him from participating in the offseason program. It may be a career-threatening situation for a player with microfracture surgery in his history. The Colts will turn to Jack Mewhort to book end LT Anthony Castonzo.

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus (knee) is questionable for training camp.

Cherilus isn't expected to return until August at the earliest. The Colts have been optimistic on Cherilus, but can't count on him after his latest knee surgery. Jack Mewhort would move to right tackle if Cherilus isn't ready for Week 1.

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Cherilus will likely miss all of OTAs recovering from a January knee scope. He struggled while playing through multiple injuries last season, but is being counted on to come back healthy. GM Ryan Grigson did little to upgrade the Colts offensive line in the draft, adding just OT Denzelle Good in the seventh round.

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus is still recovering from a January knee scope.

GM Ryan Grigson expressed some concern over his $34.5 million right tackle. "We really like Gos, but we have to see how he comes back," he said. Cherilus has a lengthy history of knee injuries that includes microfracture surgery. Cherilus proved to be a liability while playing hurt last season.
Wed, Mar 25, 2015 09:53:00 AM

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

He had a minor scope, but it's a long-term concern because Cherilus has an extensive knee-injury history, including a microfracture surgery. This season, Cherilus was Pro Football Focus' No. 70 tackle out of 84 qualifiers, struggling both in the run and pass games. He should be ready for OTAs.
Mon, Jan 19, 2015 09:44:00 PM

Colts placed RT Gosder Cherilus (groin, shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Cherilus had been playing through multiple injures all season and wasn't going to return after missing the last two games. The Colts will move forward with Joe Reitz or Jack Mewhort at right tackle. OL David Arkin was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 06:01:00 PM

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus (shoulder) is expected back this week.

The Colts lost RG Hugh Thornton (knee), but at least they're getting back their right tackle. They couldn't block the Jaguars in the first half Sunday.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 04:08:00 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins made a "serious run" at RT Gosder Cherilus before he signed with the Colts.

Cherilus had a Miami visit scheduled before inking with Indy on the first day of free agency. It's little more than an anecdote at this stage, but further indication Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland was jumping from plan to plan to fortify his line before finally signing Tyson Clabo. It's fair to wonder if Cherilus would be a Dolphin had they not been tied up in the Jake Long negotiations early in free agency.
Wed, May 8, 2013 12:04:00 AM

Colts agreed to terms with OT Gosder Cherilus, formerly of the Lions, on a five-year, $34 million contract.

This is presumably one of the "big announcements" owner Jim Irsay teased on Twitter. Cherilus was stout on the right side for the Lions last season, but is recovering from another knee operation. He's missed just four games in five years, however, and is a strong addition for the Colts' porous line provided he's healthy. This shouldn't be the last move the Colts make with the intention of keeping Andrew Luck upright more often in 2013.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 05:01:00 PM

ESPN NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert expects the Lions to "move on" from free agent RT Gosder Cherilus.

As does the Detroit Free Press. Cherilus is going on 29, and recovering from another knee procedure. The Lions have three potential replacements in Riley Reiff, Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard. Coming off a strong season, Cherilus will draw interest on the open market provided his knee checks out.
