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.

Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Oakland Raiders will part ways with DT Tommy Kelly on Wednesday.
La Canfora expects Kelly to draw interest “pretty quickly.”
Releasing Kelly will free up $4.8 million in cap space for the Raiders. He signed a seven-year deal worth $50.125 million back in 2008, but has two years remaining on that contract. Kelly would have made $6...
What’s long been expected finally happened on Wednesday when the Raiders officially parted ways with defensive tackle Tommy Kelly:
The Raiders today have released Tommy Kelly. The club appreciates his service, dedication and toughness.

The move reportedly clears up around $5 million in cap room, which for the Raiders is the equivalent...
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...
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...
The Oakland Raiders have released defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, cutting ties with their longest-tenured position player on the roster.
The move announced Wednesday is just the latest by the team to distance itself from the Al Davis era.
General manager Reggie McKenzie has already released defensive back Michael Huff and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey this offseason. Punter Shane...
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...
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...
