Cardinals were “shocked” Raiders didn’t franchise Jared Veldheer

The Cardinals signed left tackle Jared Veldheer to a five-year, $35 million contract at the start of free agency, but that wasn’t what they expected to do at the start of the offseason.

Oakland Raiders re-sign DT Pat Sims

The Raiders let a number of good, young players go this off-season, letting LaMarr Houston, Vance Walker, and Jared Veldheer leave and replacing them with aging veterans like Antonio Smith, Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley, and Donald Penn. It’s an odd strategy and use of cap space. That being said, they’re making a great move here bringing back Pat Sims on a cheap, one year deal...

Oakland Raiders: Top five remaining needs

The Oakland Raiders entered the offseason with too many holes to even list them all. At the beginning of free agency, two more big holes were created when two of the team’s best players departed in Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston. But since then, general manager Reggie McKenzie has put a big dent in those needs, adding thirteen new players to the mix for 2014 (including pre-free...

Before the ink even dried on the Veldheer and Houston contracts...

Cardinals Mailbag: Grading the Free Agent Signings

This week’s mailbag is a simple one…How would we grade the Arizona free agent signings? Ryan Bawek has the answer. Now that the 2014 NFL offseason is three weeks old and the initial mad gold rush of players playing musical chairs and teams spending wildly is all but beyond us (with the exception of the recent unexpected release of DeSean Jackson by the Eagles), I thought it would...

What will the Cardinals do at right tackle?

By just about any measure the Arizona Cardinals have had a pretty good start to their offseason. Many national football writers have given them an A rating for adding left tackle Jared Veldheer and cornerback Antonio Cromartie among others. Still there is one question that hasn’t been brought up a whole lot that needs to be answered. Who will be the Cardinals starting right tackle...

Raiders Aggressive Moves, #DJaxToOakland, and The Road Ahead

So far this offseason, the Oakland Raiders have been more aggressive than a recently divorced man on his Match.com account. However, unlike a creeper on the prowl on the internet, how could you not like what the team is doing? Granted, the start of free agency felt like the same old, crazy, against the grain Raiders when they had let Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston walk away, and...

Raiders GM confident QB Matt Schaub will rebound

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was talking on the phone about how he thought new quarterback Matt Schaub would shake off a disastrous 2013 season. "A veteran can chalk it up as a bad year, and shake it off. He's ready to bounce back," said McKenzie, who was leaving the NFL owners meeting in Orlando on Wednesday. It turns out that McKenzie has needed some...

There’s No Need to Fear, Jared Veldheer is here

Oakland Raiders RB Kory Sheets highlight video

The Oakland Raiders have not signed anyone since last week and as a result, Raiders fans have only had rumors and speculation to talk about. Rather than another story about Matt Schaub, Jared Veldheer or Terrelle Pryor I thought it would be fun to have something more positive to talk about. There is nothing I love more than seeing a dominant running back. And that is exactly what...

Reggie McKenzie: Jared Veldheer didn’t want to play for Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have been criticized for losing Jared Veldheer as much as they’ve been criticized for their botched Rodger Saffold contract. But team GM Reggie McKenzie told the San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur that Veldheer signing with the Arizona Cardinals in free agency wasn’t an issue of the Raiders not trying to retain him. […]

Arizona Cardinals sign OT Jared Veldheer

There might not have been a team needier for offensive tackles than the Cardinals, not just because of their lack of talent at the position last year, but because of their lack of talent at the position for many years. It’s been seemingly forever since they had competent offensive tackle play. Bradley Sowell was horrific this season at left tackle, after taking over for Levi Brown...

Day one of the free agency frenzy left fans breathing heavily into paper bags. Lamarr Houston was gone as was Jared Veldheer and the only new player coming to Oakland was Rodger Saffold (who would soon be leaving again).
