It's funny Jared Veldheer is doing what Carson Palmer did last year when Reggie asked him to take a slight pay cut. Carson wanted out and he instantly gets put on in Arizona. Call me crazy but I think when the Cardinals ownership put a bug in the ear of Carson, he got on the phone with Jared Veldheer and schooled him on how to go about getting out of the Raiders organization. Let's face it players just don't wanna be here and the word is out on us that its a bad place to play even with damn near $70M in free agency money. I have no doubts Reggie's got players coming down the pipeline but its going to be awfully hard to get a "somebody" to come here when our own free agents are acting like teenagers caught up in a situation where two girls finally find out about each other. Think about it, we cut Joseph Barksdale (who played like a scrub for us) a few years ago, he goes to the rams and takes Saffold's spot at LT and Saffold moves to OG. Now free agency is here Veldheer screams "hurry up and give me a contract Reggie!" Reggie shoots him an offer of 5 years $55M with a $23M signing bonus and an option on the 6th year...which equals out to $11M a year! more than what he deserves but whatever we need a LT while we build up the rest of this O-line. However, arizona comes in with a deal for $7M a year and he's all of a sudden ready to jump ship?! Yeah Veldheer is on some bullshit...!
