Raiders' LT, Veldheer, may become an option if Gross leaves

61 posts in this topic

Jared Veldheer according to Rotoworld is considered one of the better tackles in the league when healthy.  He doesn't want to be tagged, and may not be seeing that the Raiders have to worry about re-signing Lamarr Houston as well.  They may let both test the market, but would probably choose Houston if the choice just had to be made. But, just think about the possibilities with tags, Hardy, Veldheer and perhaps Houston in the mix. Moreover, throw Denarius Moore in the mix, and perhaps something could be worked out.

 

Just food for thought for active imaginations.

 

Ultimately, Veldheer may be a decent option to replace Gross, irrespective of any of my multi-player musings, if he is allowed to hit the market.

Of course he is going to cost some money.  Quality vets don't come cheap, but protecting Cam's blind side is critical. !2 mil a year is probably not what the market is going to bare. That would be an over-payment.

Raiders will resign him before free agency begins. 

 

Not saying that you're wrong, but did you even read the linked article?

I mean, Veldheer is in a situation where he can charge basically whatever he wants.

    • Steve Beuerlein's pointing about not holding on to the ball so long was interesting to me. Some of you who remember when Beuerlein was here will remember that he took a straight beating in '99 and '00 and he also had a tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. It might be smart for Cam to listen to someone who had 21 surgeries from football injuries because of this. I love me some Cam and I want to see him as the starting QB for the Panthers for a long time to come.
    • As an LSU fan, I've seen nearly all of Fournette's games and he is the real deal. He was the best running back on the team. It does not take a genius to run the read option running attack and most of the work is on the Qb. I wouldn't mind either but Fournette should be taken if he's available.      My pipedream is for us to trade next year's 1st and both 2's for us to get a Fournette and Howard combo. I think it would be worth it.
    • I'm surprised that people actually buy into this idea that our offense is going to look drastically different. I'd be shocked if it does. I hope I'm wrong, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots. If Shula had the ability to adapt he would've already done it. He is who he is and this offense is what it is. If you want real changes you make a change at OC. We didn't and we'll see an offense that looks far more familiar than different next season.
