I think me and Wes talked about this earlier with rookies - what grounds do they have, other than potential, to demand so much money?
You haven't taken a single snap in practice, you're essentially coming in as a backup player - what the **** gives you the right to handcuff and hold a team hostage?
I'd almost rather teams let their 1st round picks walk, just to get this whole situation under control and prove to everyone that these guys are drafted off of potential.
In this case, he has no grounds to hold out - at all. Everyone else around you, in your draft class, is signed and has reported, with the exception of maybe one or two guys. Makes so little sense it does nothing but piss me off and make me hate NFL players even more.
This is 80% of why I have lost a ton of interest in football over the years.
