    The Oakland Raiders were less than adequately prepared when left tackle Jared Veldheer went down with a triceps injury that required surgery last week.

    The team is attempting to make a go of it with Alex Barron, a 30-year-old former first-round bust of the St. Louis Rams who hasn't played a regular-season game since 2010. Things didn't start well.

    Former Rams general manager Billy Devaney wasn't part of the regime that brought Barron to St. Louis, but Devaney made sure to trade him away in 2010. He explained why Monday on ESPN's "NFL Insiders."

    "He does not like anything about the game except getting paid," said Devaney, who added Barron doesn't have enough heart to succeed in the NFL.
