Veldheer claimed

Recommended Posts

Solid addition in case Bulaga gets hurt again.  It's better to leave Billy Turner right where he is.  Alex Light can't be called on again to play RT.

We acquire a good veteran tackle and this only has two posts?

Perhaps linemen aren't as exciting?  ;)

He was on injured/retired list for a long time.  The Patriots have a definite need at OL, especially considering Marshal Newhouse is their swing tackle, and they let him go so he could sign somewhere else. 

I think everybody's a little more cautious than optimistic on this one because it doesn't quite add up.  I feel like this one's gonna be a lot more Jeff Saturday than... IDK, Billy Turner.

I'd be ok with another pro-bowler!

New nickname proposal: Jared VeldVeeta 

Just call him Warlord. That's what Veldheer means in English................ and Warlord is a cool nickname anyway.

I just hope if he gets on the field we aren't calling him turnstile!

Veldheer's another option. Total stopgap move and I like it.

I'd give Light a chance against a defensive front that isn't so full of early first round nightmares (the 49ers), but yeah, they got Veldheer for a reason................... and if he is capable of playing at this time, he's in the mix.

It doesn't hurt to add the depth by any means. I just hope Bulaga continues to be a warrior and can make it through.

He's like 5 years past accolades and bouncing around at this point. this is a spare tire you found in the shop that youre hoping isn't too weather checked.
