Earlier in January we saw Oakland Raiders tackle Jared Veldheer say contract negotiations were almost non-existent. He wasn’t really worried because free agency was a couple of months away.

Now that we’re getting closer, Veldheer said he wishes the contract negotiations would hurry up.

“It’s tough when that kind of stuff happens, because it goes against everything that’s been said about being a cornerstone of the team that [they're] going to build around,” Veldheer said, via CSNBayArea.com. “It doesn’t back up those words with the right action. Right now it’s kind of, not at a stand still, but there’s not a lot happening. I think that we need to move things on a little quicker. There isn’t enough urgency, to put it in a football term.”
