Veldheer or Satele in Oakland?

Oakland coach Tom Cable said Friday he still hasn’t decided if rookie Jared Veldheer or Samson Satele would start Sunday against St. Louis. Veldheer beat out Satele and started last week at Tennessee. But the rookie from a Division II school struggled against the Titans.

This is just a guess, but if Cable hasn’t decided yet, I bet he may go back to Satele. Still, that doesn’t seem like a great option. If the Raiders were happy with Satele, Veldheer wouldn’t have started in the first place. He has limited experience at center.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper looks at the Chief’s impactful rookie class.

Minnesota coach Brad Childress wouldn’t comment on San Diego Pro Bowl receiver Vincent Jackson. The Vikings are said to be one of the teams interested in trading for Jackson.

Denver defensive lineman Ryan McBean was fined $5,000 for a facemask infraction last week against Jacksonville.

The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Dan Crumb as Chief Financial Officer. Crumb was last with the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets.
