The Arizona Cardinals have traded veteran offensive tackle Jared Veldheer to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a sixth-round pick in this year's draft.
The 30-year-old Veldheer Kyle Van Noy Jersey
, at 6-foot-8 and 322 pounds, started 53 games in four seasons with Arizona after coming to the team from Oakland David Amerson Jersey
, where he spent his first four NFL campaigns. Veldheer played left tackle the first four seasons and switched to the right side last year.
It was apparent Veldheer didn't figure in Arizona's plans under new coach Steve Wilks, especially after the team signed free agent and ex-New York Giant Justin Pugh Desmond King Jersey
, who figures to take the right tackle job with D.J. Humphries on the left side.
The move Friday saves Arizona $6.9 million in salary cap space. The sixth-round pick is the 182nd overall.
Former San Diego Chargers center Nick Hardwick announced Thursday he is leaving the radio broadcast of the Chargers after three years in order to spend more time with family.
“The thing I value most in life is my family, and I believe that the time devoted to a subject should be in alignment with one?? values Garry Gilliam Jersey
,” Hardwick wrote on the team’s website. “Simply, I am no longer able to miss out on as many weekends with my family as the football season requires.”
Hardwick worked on the sidelines for one season before moving into the booth as a color analyst the last two seasons.
Hardwick expressed frustration with the franchise a year ago upon the team’s relocation to Los Angeles saying he felt used in an effort to get a new stadium in San Diego. After briefly leaving the broadcast team Kenneth Dixon Jersey
, he reversed course rejoined in his former role with the team in Los Angeles.
Hardwick spent 11 seasons with the Chargers from 2004-14 before retiring and joining the radio world on the team’s broadcasts and as a talk show host on XTRA 1360. He appeared in 136 career games with a Pro Bowl appearance in 2006. Womens Taron Johnson Jersey
