Players on the NFL Holdout Watch List

Look for these players to potentially draw lines in the sand as “voluntary” OTA’s head into training camp in late July.

  • Titans DT Albert Haynesworth (Unhappy with “franchise” deal)
  • Ravens OLB Terrell Suggs (Unhappy with Franchise deal and he wants to be paid like a DE)
  • Bengals WR Chad Johnson (Wants out and this situation looks too much like T.O circa 2005)
  • Lions WR Roy Williams (Lions say they want him or maybe not)
  • Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin (Larry Fitzgerald’s contract)
  • Giants TE Jeremy Shockey (Team won it all without him)
  • Dolphins DE Jason Taylor (New team braintrust seems to not want him)
  • Eagles CB Lito Sheppard (New handpicked starting cornerback Asante Samuel and his huge deal)
  • Falcons WR Joe Horn (Buried on the depth chart)
  • Rams RB Steven Jackson (Last year of contract w/ teams not paying RB’s),
  • Giants DE Osi Umenyiora (Unhappy with Contract and Strahan should be back)
  • Bears LB Brian Urlacher (He got a look at Lance Briggs’ deal and started to sulk)
  • Bucs QB Jeff Garcia (Does he really think with all of Gruden’s QBs that a 38yr old will get paid)
  • Every year a couple of first round rookies miss significant portions of training camp trying to squeeze dollars out of their rookie deal (i.e. Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell in ’07).  My picks this year are Bears Offensive Tackle Chris Williams (14th overall) and Niners DT Kentwan Balmer (29)

One thought on “Players on the NFL Holdout Watch List”

  1. George Clooney is a really convincing acting professional and an remarkable person on top of that. I enjoy everything that he engages in, from his position on homosexual rights and other political views to his newest movie flick The American. Which was actually a really good motion picture, although it may not be what most anticipated, it was still a outstanding motion picture.
