    One part of this article does concern me however.
    He talks about his collarbone injury and how he needs to take care of himself in case something should happen to that. Completley understandable, but I didnt here him talk about needing to take care of it when he was campaigning to be a top 5 pick in the draft.
    Again its just a thought and i hope it doesnt create to much backlash, I am a huge fan and supporter of AP but I didnt really like that statement.
    This also concerned me.
    I hope to god this guy didn't dupe everyone for the big payday.
    I know thats truly unlikely but it's just a thought.


    Come to think of it I really hate articles about the this part of the business.
    I'm just a football fan and love to see it played at such a high level and when guys start talking about money and family and blah blah blah, I start losing interest.
    Hopefully this will be the last article needed to be posted about any Vikes and holding out while trying to figure out a deal.
    I caught that as well. I don't think it is a case of him duping everybody for a payday.
    It is hard to fool the team doctors.
    More than likely it is his agent working that angle with him, telling him that he needs to have everything taken care of in the first contract in case he gets injured.
    I am sure that they work that angle with every top 15 pick, but with AD it probably hits home a little more because he was injured before.
    Whats this guy gonna get, 15-20 Mill gaurantied money?
    I am sure with an investment like that our team doctors and specialist we don't even know about have done a thorough check of every orfice on this kid, let alone his collar bone.

    This is just standard agent kakka del rio.

    I don't see what is so hard (for either side) to say:

    Here is what was signed last year for the #7 pick, now lets add another 5 percent, and presto, you're in camp!
    Doesn't seem like it should be that difficult.
    Different positions.

    IM with you guys i think a lot of it is his agent. It just disturbs me that he woudl almost get offended before when asked about his shoulder but now when its contract time its a concern.
