Gosder Cherilus: Contemplating retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cherilus, an unrestricted free agent, is contemplating retirement, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cherilus hasn't formally decided to retire, but he reportedly isn't looking for a new contract this offseason either. The Lions' first-round selection back in 2008, the 32-year-old veteran has played in 132 games across the past nine seasons and was regarded as an above-average offensive lineman during his five years in Detroit. However, his performance largely declined thereafter, to the point that he spent this past season in Tampa Bay as a mere backup. While he seems intent on sitting out at least the 2017 campaign, a return for the 2018 season technically remains in the picture.

Buccaneers' Gosder Cherilus: Limited in Wednesday practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cherilus (groin/ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of reports.

The veteran tackle thus starts Week 17 prep on better standing than last week, when he was unable to suit up for the Wednesday session and was ultimately ruled inactive for the Christmas Eve tilt against the Saints. While his improvement is naturally a positive, the even better news for the Bucs at right tackle is that starter Demar Dotson (concussion) is back to full practice participation and apparently on track to play against the Panthers in the season finale on Sunday.

Buccaneers' Gosder Cherilus: Ruled out for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cherilus (groin/ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Saints.

The Buccaneers will have to scramble to find a viable option at right tackle Saturday with both Cherilus and Demar Dotson (concussion) both sidelined. Their deficiency at right tackle was on full display Sunday against the Cowboys as defensive lineman David Irving wreaked havoc on quarterback Jameis Winston in the fourth quarter. Per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers may be forced to use either Leonard Wester and Kevin Pamphile at right tackle Saturday.

Another update regarding Cherilus' status should be available after Thursday's practice.

by Shawn Krest |

So it is what it is, and we're fortunate that we've got a bunch of guys that have position flexibility, can play a lot of spots."
