    Re: Peterson, Quinn Likely to Hold Out?

    Well Peterson should just agree to a deal that the organization offers come on already 5 days at this point til training camp. It always the player who is dilly-dallying about well I need this kinda money, Or the players agent who wants a bigger cut.

    It is seven days until training camp, not five. And that is a long time in the world of contract negotiations.

    Not to worry.
    The sky really isn't falling, but rather this is the strategy that rookies and thier agents have taken since time began.

    Rest at ease my friends.
    ;D

    I'm with Italian that the rookie salaries should be pre-set.

    Their salary should be slotted automatically, and pre-set based on a graduated scale from the first pick to the 32nd, etc.
    They could even bump the initial salary, for rookies every year by 3%, or whatever a
    cost of living increase is.

    This would even do away with the need for agents (who needs lawyers anyways?
    ;D
    )..., except when negotiating a new contract after the initial 3 years are up.

    And that is why this won't happen on Gene Upshaw's watch.
    For the rookie salaries to be auto-slotted, the Player's Assoc would have to lobby to change that.
    The folks who would miss out most on the big money are the agents that repeatedly have top 10 clients.
    Tom Condon is one of those agents.
    Guess who represents Gene Upshaw, the president of the Player's Association?
    Yep, Tom Condon.

    That being said, its absolutely retarded for rookies to make that kind of money when veterans who toil productively for years in the trenches never reach that kind of pay day.

    These things go down to the wire almost every year.
    I believe we will have all of our draft picks in by the opening of camp.

    MOST agents AREN'T lawyers...which mucks up the system even WORSE!!!

    Those agents are usually FRIENDS of the rookie...or GREEDY SUPERAGENTS who know how to manipulate the system.

    You make it sound like the lawyers aren't the best manipulators of all time.
