Dude was the #6 overall pick. I'm pretty sure they gave him every opportunity possible.
Dude is a physical monster, no question about it. Sad that one of the world's best defensive minds couldn't turn a monster into a football player. Even sadder that he thinks he didn't get a chance.....frankly, a dude that big ought to be rag dolling people consistently.
Bears give up on Gholston

Defensive end Vernon Gholston, the sixth overall pick in the 2008 draft, got three years to prove himself in New York. He failed.
Gholston got roughly three weeks to prove himself in Chicago.
The Bears have announced that Gholston has been waived. If/when he clears waivers, he’ll become a free agent.
Daaaaaang pick him up for cheap!!!!!! hahaha......
Am I kidding?
Going back through the drafts, it's amazing to me how many first round D-linemen just disappear. (Not just for Texans.)
Must be the hardest position to handicap for the NFL.
I don't know. On Hard Knocks, it really looked like Rex was pulling for the kid to step up and like he thought the kid just needed a chance.
Didn't work out that way.
What did you expect?
How can you outshine this guy?
I was thinking (at the time of original posting) that Rex seems like the type that wouldn't play favorites, if you can play HE will play you.
Looks like the Bears didn't give him a chance either. Gholston was given more chances than most to succeed.
Two really good defensive staffs has passed this guy over, so that's not good news for him.
Young man needs to lose the entitlement. Life aint fair, earn something.
