Maryland tackle Jared Gaither will apply for next month's NFL supplemental draft, the school announced yesterday. The decision comes a week after Gaither was declared academically ineligible for the 2007 season and concludes the gargantuan lineman's career with the Terrapins. "It's a decision he's put a lot of thought into," Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said in a statement. "He's expressed a desire to get his degree, but I think the opportunity to make a living and the chance to be successful at the next level was a deciding factor. We wish him the best of luck and hope he achieves success in the NFL and in life."
