Perceived injury history? He had never missed a game before last season when he tore his triceps. That's false information. Here's a blurb on him from Evan silva:
6. Left tackle Jared Veldheer -- Had never missed an NFL game before tearing triceps last August. Started final five contests, allowing two sacks. Allowed five sacks across 16 starts the year before. Outstanding pass protector throughout career and not a liability in run game. Highly athletic at 6-foot-8, 312. Expressed displeasure with Raiders' pace of contract talks in early February.
Here is rotoworld:
Veldheer recently hinted that he's not satisfied with his contract talks with the Raiders and that he would prefer not to be franchise tagged. With Oakland currently a league-high $61.3 million under the cap, it would be surprising if they weren't able to get him signed to a long-term deal. Veldheer, 26, is considered one of the best pass-blocking left tackles in the league when healthy. He missed the first 11 games of 2013 with a triceps injury suffered in training camp. Feb 8 - 5:03 PM
