Veteran G Ben Grubbs’ NFL Career Likely Over Due To Neck Injury

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that veteran G Ben Grubbs has likely played his last down in the NFL after he suffered a neck injury last season.

Grubbs is a former Pro Bowler and one of the best offensive line still available in this year’s free agent market. However, there was curiously very little buzz surrounding him this offseason.

This obviously explains the lack of reported interest in Grubbs.

Grubbs, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Ravens back in 2007. He spent five years in Baltimore before he signed a five-year contract with the Saints as an unrestricted free agent a few years ago.

After three years in New Orleans, the Saints traded him to the Chiefs in return for a 2015 fifth-round pick that became Tyeler Davison.

Grubbs was in the second year of his four-year, $24 million contract that included $10.6 million guaranteed when the Chiefs cut him in a move that freed up $1.1 million in available cap space.

In 2015, Grubbs appeared in seven games for the Chiefs and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 31 guard out of 81 qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
