If you wanted a free agent left tackle you had to act fast Tuesday.

And the Cardinals weren’t going to be left out of the mix.

Per multiple reports, the Cardinals landed Raiders free agent Jared Veldheer with a five-year, $35 million deal.

Veldheer is coming off a triceps injury, but gives the Cards the kind of pass-protector they need covering Carson Palmer, especially in a division full of premier pass-rushers.
