Found March 27, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
That abnormally large human being on the far left of the above photo is Raiders offensive lineman Jared Veldheer. We don’t know what exactly Veldheer has done to get so ridiculously jacked, but to avoid slandering people, we’ll just assume he eats a lot of vegetables. A lot of anabolic vegetables. Remarkably, this is what he looks like after supposedly gaining just four pounds (now up to 325). The Raiders offense will be switching back to the power blocking scheme in 2013 and it looks like Veldheer, a fourth-year pro out of that the intimidatingly named Hillsdale College, took a lot of that literally in his offseason workout regimen. So, whoever ends up being the Raiders’ quarterback next season, we’re sure he’s going to be glad to have a guy built like a back hoe protecting him. H/T 95.7 The Game

Report: Raiders Will Release DT Tommy Kelly On Wednesday

Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Oakland Raiders will part ways with DT Tommy Kelly on Wednesday.

Carson Palmer Would Rather Be Backup With Winner, Than Start For Raiders

Carson Palmer is the epitome of a dollarnaire, having been so wise with his NFL money, that Palmer will walk away from any situation that he doesn’t feel is prudent to his success. Palmer who is due $13 million from the Raiders this season was simply asked to take a $3 million pay cut, that still would have ensured a base salary of $10 million. Most pundits would have expected...

Palmer could be ticklish decision for Cardinals

Carson Palmer to the Cardinals isnt a new idea. The possibility that the Raiders might release him to save money was floated early in the offseason. So was the possibility the Cards might pursue him if Kevin Kolb didnt agree to give back a lot of that money Arizona gambled and lost on him. But following a report that Palmer is unlikely to restructure his contract with Oakland, and...

Cardinals rumors: Arizona could target Carson Palmer

With quarterback Carson Palmer “highly unlikely” to accept a pay cut from the Oakland Raiders – according to Adam Schefter of ESPN – it looks more likely that the team will elect to part ways with the veteran. If that happens, the Arizona Cardinals could be one of the teams to express interest in Palmer, according to Pro Football Talk. Interesting: now "highly unlikely...

Michael Huff brings Free Safety Relief to Ravens...

I didn't think the Ravens could land a high-quality veteran safety like Michael Huff for a 3-year $6 million deal, seeing as Huff was due a $4 million signing bonus and a $4 million salary for 2013 from the Oakland Raiders. But somehow Ozzie pulled it off.           Michael Huff, FS/CB, age 30, 6-1, 208, 6th year out of Texas, drafted in...
