    then it'll be the gain of Oliver/Gordon/Tribble instead
    Cason's basically been offered the nickel job on a silver platter, if he's stupid enough to hold out then he'll be lucky to be active this year

    I think he'll get a deal done this week. My super secret sources say he'll be in camp by Friday.

    He's not the only one. Only a handful of first rounders have signed.

    That uncapped year is really screwing things up on what would have been 5 or 6 year deals for the first round picks.

    Contract or no contract how is not showing up to camp out of your hands? This team is going to the Super Bowl with or without you.

    There are a lot of unsigned first rounders, particularly among defensive players. This happens every year and every year people react the same way. Cason will be signed sometime within a week of the first day of camp. Rookies no longer come into camp ignorant of the playbook or the system they will play in. Cason has already studied the system and worked out in the mini camps. I fail to understand why people think players and agents are ungrateful wretches who should just knuckle under to the owners and take low ball offers or unfavorable terms just to make us happy.

    Well technically the Chargers don't need to make him an offer, so that is out of his hands. He'll get signed though.

    I wonder why he wants to drag his feet on coming into camp. They can't be that far off of deciding on a figure. Does he just want one more week before he starts the grueling camp thing. LIfe must be nice in arizona (115 degrees and all).

    To be honest. I can't beleive its almost training camp. Somenone of the female persuasion pinch me.

    NO. If it makes you feel better the gorgeous babe can pinch you as well. I'll tell you what. I get down there if gas prices don't go stupid and lets go over to the chargers cheerleader tent and have them pinch us both that the season is on. :yes:

    I don't believe he can show up without a contract. I could be wrong but he's got to follow union rules.

    He hasnt been handed anything yet and it is his agent, not him that is being stupid, holding out, whatever you want to call it.

    Maybe he hasn't had a contract to sign? :yes: I haven't seen or heard about him "holding out". Why is everybody getting their panties in a bunch? :icon_shrug:

    I found, in my wasted youth, that some knickers are easier to twist than others. They were my favorites. They still are in my pre dotage. The prohibition against being in camp without a contract is to protect guys from people like Dan Snyder or the Bill Bidwells of the NFL, not AJ, who is an honorable man.
