With the new salary cap and inflated salaries for free agents, there are going to be lots of jealous stars holding out to take advantage of the change in the market. This is an article by Peter King about the repercussions of the FA craze this year.

What players from your teams do you think will hold out, and will these players win their battles? How much do you expect them to make?

Well, for the Giants, I can't see anyone making a hold out as of now, but there are several teams that may. Don't be surprised if the Patriots have another hold out. They always seem to get quite a few..

Doesn't appear to be any Bengals holding out. Justin Smith said he will sign the franchise tender and most of our offense has fresh deals anyway.

There are no players on the article, so I was interested to see who you guys predict will hold out.

Hasn't TJ been asking for a new contract? I don't think he'd hold out, but theres always that possibility.

To really make his point, he'd miss some of the regular season as well.

Lance Briggs, Michael Turner, don't really think anyone else will maybe Asante Samuel.

As they should. The school is a place of learning.

I think Michael Turner might hold-out if he doesn't get traded or signed by another team.

Just look at any of the players that went to the pro bowl this year. That is your list.

I could maybe see Alan Faneca holding out next year due to all the amazing deals OG are getting

To answer my own question, Terrell Owens will surely try to capitalize on the new salary cap :D

For the Eagles, I don't see anyoneholding out. But L.J. Smith is a longshot, if any Eagle would holdout.

i don't really see anyone on the cardinals holding out, the player who has a outside chance is Karlos Dansby though

That was PFT running with the idea that he signed a new agent in order to do so. He said that wasn't his intentions and that he would stick with the deal because he would've been thrilled at that contract his rookie season.

might Javon Walkert hold out, or did we restructure?

Jimmy
03-08-2007, 08:44 PM
adding on to that, i think he made like 550,000 last year. not a lot for a pro bowl caliber wr

Lance Briggs has pretty much said that he is going to hold out...
