Coaches always tell players to get in the weight room and eat before in order to get stronger for the next season. Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Jared Veldheer appears to have heard this message loud and clear and has done just that--gotten stronger. Just calling his progress "getting stronger" is a bit of understatement though. This guy has gotten freaking huge! Color the man green and you have the new Incredible Hulk! his work ethic is admirable, but I have to wonder if his new found bulk is going to make it a little harder to move.

He credits his size to Nutralite packs that insure he gets all his vitamins, minerals, and oils. I believe the man, but I have to say that he still reminds me of this guy:

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.

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.
