Just read where the Packers just signed OL Jared Veldheer (Spelling?) even though he just played for the Colts this past Saturday. Seems pretty strange to me! How much do you think he can help the Packers?

Veldheer was a former Cardinal. I'm not concerned about him, especially if Donald can go; Veldheer is old and pretty much washed up.

  • Packers signed OT Jared Veldheer from Colts' practice squad.
    COVID practice squad rules allow for a non-protected player to sign elsewhere at the beginning of the week. Veldheer in turn will become the first player in NFL history to play for two teams in the same postseason after starting in the Colts' Wild Card loss to Buffalo. The veteran is expected to be used as depth behind Billy Turner, who will replace David Bakhtiari (knee) at left tackle for the remainder of the postseason.

He was drafted by the Raiders in 2010 I believe. He was a decent OT but his play began to slip fairly early in his career and he bounced around a lot. That alone should tell you all you need to know. It's obviously a covid precaution type of signing.

Did he actually play in the regular season/playoffs? or was he on the PS the whole time?
He played for them down the stretch I think. Noticed him in a more recent game forget who they were playing. But he looked good he's probably better than the dude they had there vs the Bears.

Good luck knowing the offense?
