    Glad to hear that Gholston figured out what went wrong and addressed it. If he can return to form this season, he makes that new defensive line all the better for it. I’d love to see him record a double-digit TFL number in 2018 with 6-7 sacks.

    He’ll have 4 sacks this year and one forced fumble with 48 tackles

    Well Gholston is no different then Martin, Jackson, Baker, or some of these other players who sign a contract then loaf the next year. Licht might have to rethink how they pay these guys in order to enhance motivation. Maybe they have to pass a weigh-in and some type of exercise test before they get all their bonus money in their first year ?

      agree, these super high $$$ contracts should be incentive laden. I understand why they didn’t cut him (dead money cap hit) but i think his performance after the contract says a bunch about his true motivations/passions/character or lack thereof. Just from a teammate standpoint, he let them down.

    Always liked gholston…maybe cuz I’m an OSU guy and his cousin was a hammer for us.

    This guy is basically Greg spires 2.0. Coach him up and work on his short area quickness/hands – he’s got more than enough size and strength to play as our strong side DE.

    Last year he had some significant injuries…the neck was scary. But He’s our best run defender on the dline…OT’s just can’t move him off the ball. Gonna need better this year though, and he seems motivated. Let’s see it bruh

    Sounds to me that coaching had a hand in his gaining weight last year because it likely is no coincidence that all the DTs played heavier last year. Now that he has trimmed down to his optimum weight I am expecting a good year out of him. We sure can use him this year to help in the rotation.
