Dude retired from the pats because his body is falling apart. Apparently he has put it back together now? Humpty dumpty style?

Long time starter out west (4 years Raiders, 4 years Cardinals, 1 year Broncos) kinda injury prone like Bulaga but less so.

Raiders shocked me, when they let him hit FA the first time... he was too good to let go (then), but they disagreed, and coming off a season ending injury that year. But he once was very very good, I don't know how he has been in recent years.

Injuries have taken a toll on him, and after signing with the Patriots, he retired a week later because he didn't think his hip could make it the whole season. But he's unretiring now...

So....pick up a injured guy. Just what we need.
I guess it cuts out the middle man.
Hopefully he can play. We need SOMETHING to help.

Latest rumor (only a rumor, so who knows if this is correct) is that he avoided any serious damage, and is only expected to miss a single game (if that).

Though some fans want to just sit him until the Vikings game.

An injured guy, that when healthy, might be a decent starter...

Your last sentence sounds like a description of Bulaga.

But seems like a decent pickup if he’s just going to be a fill-in guy for when Bulaga misses some time.

In his younger days, I'd say the two were probably extremely close in a lot of ways. I think injuries have had a bigger long term impact on this guy, where Bulaga often seems to bounce back with no problems.

Those, I don't know what he has in recent years...

Nope, no other decent options... a number of teams have had OTs problems all season and couldn't find a darn thing...

There are certain positions, such as QB, OT, edge rusher and CB, that are extremely extremely rare to find a decent one during the season other than maybe via trade. And trading deadline has now past.

The Green Bay Packers officially claimed veteran offensive tackle Jared Veldheer off of waivers on Friday, confirming he passed his physical with the team.

Veldheer, a third-round pick in 2010 with over 100 career starts, was placed on the exempt/commissioners list, meaning he won’t yet take up a roster spot.



Huh? Commissioners list? That's the, you're in trouble with the commissioner list... right?

They're the only one I see reporting this, so I think it might be a mistake? Or there might be another exempt list that he's on? Or I'm not sure... but that seems odd, if true...

Saw it elsewhere too. I think Packers site. I think it's just a roster exemption for the Packers so they don't have to burn a roster spot for a player coming off the IR list.

Pure conjecture here, but is this perhaps a “league couldn’t process your paperwork fast enough because of the holidays and/or we goofed it up, but we’re not going to penalize you by kicking someone else off your roster for the upcoming game“ list

Cheesey (14-May) : Does that mean I should be PUNished?🤪
Nonstopdrivel (12-May) : I'd say most of your puns recently have been more of a stretch than string cheese, but Nostridamus was a masterpiece. I wouldn't nominate it for a Pullitzer anyway.
Cheesey (12-May) : LOL Wayne! I appreciate your comment. You and Non made me feel my “cheesiness” is still worth something here.
wpr (12-May) : I will apologize Cheesey. I saw it and considered it to be the typical cheese spread. I failed to recognize the masterpiece of pun it truly is. mea culpa

Nonstopdrivel (9-May) : Filling out background check applications is so fucking depressing.
KRK (9-May) : Beast, where did you see that...re Watson/Bears.
beast (9-May) : And PFT pulls back information from before his draft (including his own words), to suggest Watson might currently be mistaken.
beast (9-May) : Deshaun Watson tweets "The bears NEVER ONCE talked to me.." when aruging against the Bears evaluating him... on a discussion about teams choicing QB based on race.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : Yup. Make it like week 11 or something. Have some Hall of Fame induction thing or something.
Nonstopdrivel (8-May) : I would rather the entire league took off the same week.
Cheesey (8-May) : I don’t like it either, Zero. But there’s not much we can do about it.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : It'd be more important if the BYE was later. I don't like how the NFL does their BYE weeks.
