Cardinals Receive Mr. Irrelevant Pick

As compensation for a confusing equation of free agents lost and signed, the Cardinals have received the very last pick, known as " Mr. Irrelevant" in the 2015 draft. In 2014 the Cardinals signed free agents Ted Ginn, Jared Veldheer, and Ted Larson, but lost Andre Roberts, Karlos Dansby, Antoine Cason, and Jim Dray which led to the compsensatory pick, which cannot be traded. Arizona...

Oakland Raiders Must Retain Stefen Wisniewski

About a year ago, the Oakland Raiders watched as two pro-bowl caliber talents—defensive end Lamarr Houston and left tackle Jared Veldheer—left for other clubs in free agency. While Houston's season with the Chicago Bears ended early due to injury, Veldheer was part of an Arizona Cardinals offensive line that made the playoffs despite having to protect three different starting...

Raiders are not projected to get any compensatory picks in 2015

The Oakland Raiders need a lot of help from this year’s draft. They had one of the best drafts of any team in the NFL in 2014 but the roster is still a long way away from being where it needs to be. The defense is lacking at corner, safety, defensive end, middle linebacker, wide receiver and needs depth at pretty much every position. But unfortunately for the Raiders, they won’t...

Cardinals' Fitzgerald, Veldheer active vs. Chiefs

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is active against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Fitzgerald missed the last two games with a sprained left knee, breaking a string of playing in 110 consecutive contests. Arizona's starting left tackle Jared Veldheer (ankle) also was active. Fitzgerald and Veldheer had been listed as questionable. There were...

Matt Schaub: A microcosm of Raiders recent struggles

It’s somewhat understandable that the Oakland Raiders targeted a veteran quarterback in the offseason. At the time they traded for Matt Schaub, there wasn’t anyone on the roster that could be considered a viable starter in the NFL. The problem with this trade was that Oakland viewed Schaub as a decent stopgap starter in the NFL. This at a time when most around the league had...

Can Khalil Mack serve up some Raiders revenge on Veldheer and Palmer?

It’s a fantasy I’ve been imagining in my head since draft day: 4th and goal, 1 second left, Carson Palmer drops back to pass, but then Khalil Mack spins around Jared Veldheer and SACK! Game over, Raiders win 42-0… General manager Reggie McKenzie was widely criticized for letting starting left tackle Jared Veldheer leave in free agency. How can you build a winning team when...

Are the Oakland Raiders the most dysfunctional team in football?

The Arizona Cardinals take on the Oakland Raiders this week at O.co Coliseum in the Bay Area. This game sets up to be a classic trap game for the 4-1 Cardinals against the 0-5 Raiders. The Raiders haven’t won a game since a 28-23 win over Houston on November 17 of last season. That was a win over a Texans team that was in the throes of losing 14 straight games en route to the number...

Bold predictions for the Raiders vs Cardinals

The Oakland Raiders have reached week seven of the 2014 NFL season and still do not have win. Sitting at 0-5, the Raiders will host the Arizona Cardinals along with former Raiders Carson Palmer and Jared Veldheer. Much like the Raiders, I have not found much success this season either. But much like Derek Carr, I had a break out week last week going 3 for 3 on my bold predictions...

Breakfast With the Raiders Anyone?

The Oakland Raiders fans have sunk to another low level. Last week, they pelted the San Diego Chargers team bus with eggs. You have to wonder a couple things about that situation. First, will they egg the bus when Carson Palmer and Jared Veldheer (pictured above) return to Oakland this week for the first time since leaving the team? Secondly, do all the Raiders who throw eggs get...

Cardinals notebook: Cooper off to slow start

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- With Jared Veldheer arriving to provide an anchor at tackle, the left side of the Cardinals' offensive line figured to be secure for years to come. And that's still what the team is expecting. But the other half of Arizona's prized tandem, Jonathan Cooper, is not progressing as quickly as coach Bruce Arians anticipated. "I'm a little disappointed in where Coop...

Cardinals see Veldheer as long-term answer at left tackle

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It almost sounded like an incantation from a mad scientist reviewing the schematic for his latest creation. "Six-eight, three-twenty and 26 years old . . . and he's mean, he's athletic, he's got all the traits. " Bruce Arians didn't quite punctuate this description with an evil-sounding cackle, but it probably would have served. We can forgive the Cardinals coach...

Leftist movement: Cardinals have high hopes for Veldheer, Cooper

With training camp only one month away, the biggest concern for the Cardinals is that gaping hole at inside linebacker where departed free agent Karlos Dansby and suspended fifth-year pro Daryl Washington both played at an elite level in 2013. Despite the best efforts of Kevin Minter, Larry Foote and whoever else may jump aboard in camp, it's obvious the Cardinals will be compensating...

2015 NFL Mock Draft

1. Oakland Raiders- Jameis Winston, QB, FSU #484614731 / gettyimages.com First of all, the Raiders have the worst roster in the league.  I don’t even know how they managed to win 4 games last year.  With no stable quarterback, injury prone running backs, no go-to wide receiver, an offensive line that might be the worst in the league with the loss of Jared Veldheer, mediocre...

Snubbed? Arizona Cardinals OT Jared Veldheer not named top-10 in the NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Competition Should Be Fierce for Raiders O-line

Michael Macor/The Chronicle Although the Oakland Raiders are coming off of two consecutive 4-12 seasons, there is plenty reason for optimism as the NFL approaches the 2014 season.  That’s because the Raiders had a great offseason in which they added proven veterans with something left in the tank as well as drafted a mix of instant impact players and developmental projects.

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...

Raiders Made Big Free Agency Splashes After Dismal First Day

They watched in despair as two of their best players, LT Jared Veldheer and DE Lamar Houston went to other teams. Meanwhile, the deal with OL Roger Safford fell through because of a failed physical.

Raiders Aggressive Moves, #DJaxToOakland, and The Road Ahead
