• Jared Veldheer holds up in the trenches

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Dec 3, 2013
    Veldheer was on the field for all 56 of the Raiders' offensive snaps, despite coach Dennis Allen saying earlier in the week Veldheer would be part of a "feel" rotation at left tackle with Matt McCants , what with it being Veldheer's first game of the season. Veldheer can be an unrestricted free agent after the season, but the Raiders are already working to make sure that he isn’t playing anywhere but Oakland in 2014. The rust that inhabited Oakland Raiders left tackle Jared Veldheer last week against the Dallas Cowboys as he made his season debut was cancelled out by how physically fresh he felt in the Thanksgiving Day game. The 2010 third-round pick from Hillsdale College has been a starter since his rookie year, turning in consistently strong performances for an offense that was often in flux around him.
