Free agent OT Jared Veldheer announces retirement


Recommended Posts

Mammoth of a man, but injuries kept him from ever reaching his full potential. Think this is his 3rd or 4th time actually 'retiring', so we'll see if it actually sticks. If it does, I'd be hard pressed seeing him voted into the Hall of Fame, particularly since he didn't play for one of the 'core' franchises that would allow him to enter with lesser stats.

Turned in a really nice 12 year career for a 3rd round pick. Was a top 10-20ish OT at his best. But he almost brought COVID to GB's lockerroom during the playoffs...

Top 10? I'd say he was borderline top 5 for 1 ~ 2 seasons. Dude was very underrated for quite a while.

He actually was pretty decent in the early parts of his career in Oakland.  Thought at one point he was LTotF.  He left and I stopped following.   Glad he hung them up while still relatively healthy.
