  • Brady Quinn and Joe Thomas Likely to Miss Start of Camp

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...e&type=fantasy

    Update: Quinn will most likely miss the start of training camp when it opens on July 27, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Recommendation: Quinn's contract holdout has been predicted for the last month and this news comes as little surprise. Still, the more training camp he misses the longer until he will take the mantle as the team's starting QB.

    Update: Thomas will most likely not be signed to a contract by the start of training camp on July 27, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Recommendation: This is little surprise, as his holdout has been rumored for the last month. Once he is signed, Thomas is expected to provide instant improvement to the Browns' porous offensive line. His presence is needed, to put it mildly.

    I think rookie hold outs are BS you guys have done nothing in the NFL get in camp!

    The NFL is a business. Theyre looking out for their own finances and doing whats in their best interests financially. I don't blame them one bit. They can cut you whenver they want, so as long as you have some sort of leverage, use it. Theres no morality in business. This is no different.

      You can't cut a first round pick for at least three years the cap hit would be huge I don't think a player that has never even stepped on a NFL field should hold out. I think it is BS that rookie player can come in and be the highest paid player on his team or highest paid player at his position it is just not right IMO. I mean look at Pac Man after all the off the field stuff he has done Tinn still can't cut him because the cap hit would be huge they have so much money tied in to him.

        No surprise, Thomas wants the same money Vince got last year, Brady wants more money than normal because he dropped.

          thats the way its always been though, and its like that with huge companies as well...at the same time, the teams do have the option to not pay them the huge contracts, or dont pay them at all...so its not that crazy because teams dont mind going out of their way to do it...these are 2 huge rookies that cleveland should make sure they sign however possible

            It doesn't have to do with the players nearly as it has to do with their agents. The players sit back and do exactly what the agents tell them. Not to mention that it is very rare for a player to actually be involved with the negotiations in any extent. The players are merely puppets, the agents are the puppeteers.

            Oldie but a goodie.

              The agent works for the player not the other way around they need to know that it is up to the player when it all comes down to it.

                Exactly. Sadly it's going more and more the opposite way.

                  Thomas should get atleast as much as VY got. The fact that he's a OT and young is a QB shouldn't change anything. If OT weren't as important they wouldn't be taken this high. As for Quinn he should get more than he's slotted for, afterall the Browns gave up 1st round next year and 2nd this year to get him. I'd geuss he gets 15-17 money worth.
                  "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

                    I don't think Quinn should get more just because he is a QB or because they had to give up so much to give him he fell just like players do every year I don't think he should get special treat meant. The Chiefs took Derrick Johnson at 15 when many felt he was a for sure top 10 pick he didn't throw a fit wanting top ten money and IMO neither should Quinn.

                      Simply put, the Browns should have NEVER drafted Quinn to begin with. He's just not worth it. . .

                        this is why the NFL should have an arbitration policy like in baseball.

                          I agree the Garunteed amounts for rookies should be pre-determined according to each slot. After that they can negoiate any escalators into the contracts they want.

                            I find it humorous that Brady Quinn is still holding on to the notion that he is a franchise QB and deserves to be treated as such.

                              You're not making sense, Shiver.

                              For one, Quinn's agent is well-known Tom Condon, who is going to do as right by his client as possible - that's what Quinn hired him for.

                              Secondly, what does the notion of Quinn as the Brown's long-sought franchise quarterback have to do with rookie contract negotiations? The Browns drafted him in the 1st round, trading their 08 1st round pick to do so, and will pay him as such soon enough.

                              And why would Quinn or anyone else have to hold on to such a notion when there hasn't been a snap of preseason much less the actual season? I've heard of out of sight, out of mind, but the above is bordering on ridiculous.
