Robert Gallery is a Cable Guy. This much we know for a fact.
The former Raider is being reunited with his former coach in Seattle as news broke that Gallery inked a three-year deal with the Seahawks.
Upon being fired by Al Davis, Tom Cable took his talents to the Pacific Northwest where he’s currently Pete Carroll’s assistant head coach in addition to coaching the offensive line.
No doubt Cable was licking his chops the moment he learned the Raiders weren’t going to re-sign Gallery.
Despite Gallery’s epic failure as a franchise left tackle he became a very good left guard doing most of his best work in the running game.
Given Seattle’s woeful offensive line Gallery will become an instant upgrade at the guard position.
While Gallery was never able to become the perennial All-Pro Mr. Davis envisioned when drafting him second overall, he was a valued member of the community in the East Bay and did whatever the coaching staff asked of him. His departure was imminent once John Herrera chose to air his dirty laundry with regards to the none-too-private contract demands made by Gallery.
