Discussion of Jake Grove signed to replace Samson Satele at center for the Dolphins

About how Grove is an upgrade over Samson, former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist said:
”Stronger and stouter than Satele.” (Miami Herald)

Questioning if Grove’s big contract was worth it, Raiders radio analyst and former coach Tom Flores said that Grove creates a good push on running player, but like Samson:
”he has trouble with the premier nose guards, like Baltimore has.”

Flores said that Grove’s pass blocking is:
”adequate. I don’t think it’s great. The question is, can he stay healthy? Every time he got into a groove, he would get some injury. I don’t think Oakland would have paid what Miami did [$14 million guaranteed].” (Miami Herald)
