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

61 posts in this topic

The Raiders have huge cap space and need to keep him. He's not going anywhere.

it would be nice to have him as an option. i considered all along that he was just going to re-sign with the raiders.

 

we could do a lot worse.

He would be a talent upgrade over Gross. Not the locker room glue guy like Gross however.. Or I am assuming bc he is a young Raider.

... is an object when you have 21 spaces on your roster because of free agents and draft picks to sign.

What sorcery is this. Madden franchise mode, engage!

Really though, I wish we could afford a legit left tackle. Sad face.

If we replace Gross it'll be in the draft or in FA with a mid-level guy like Anthony Collins of the Bengals until we can address LT long-term in the draft.

8-9 mil per year is substantially lower than 12 mil per year. Veldheer ain't getting Hardy money. That would be insane on its own merit, not to mention that a few other LTs will be on the market also.
