It's official: God hates the Raiders. A day after letting left tackle Jared Veldheer escape to Arizona, where he signed a five-year, $35 million deal, and instead signing Rams castoff Rodger Saffold to a five-year, $42 million contract, Saffold failed his physical, the team announced Wednesday evening.

There's more: Saffold's deal has subsequently been voided which means that the Raiders are right back where they started 30 hours ago: Flush with cash and without a left tackle.

It's not all bad news, however. Oakland won't be stuck with a player they almost certainly overpaid. And Saffold gets to return to the Rams where he will sign a five-year deal, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

(And this qualifies as the most embarrassing walk of shame ever.)
