He stated this source that is close to the situation told him that Grubbs really wants to be a Saint. Detillier went on to comment that it wouldn’t be a surprise that if Grubbs signed with the Saints sometime today.
Analysts like Detillier said that Grubbs is only second behind Nicks as far as guards in the NFL. He referred to Grubbs as a “road grader” who is very good in the run game. Grubbs has a Southern connection since he was born in Georgia and played for Auburn University.
