These guys all waiting until camp to even begin serious negotiations is stupid.
That's for sure.

I say next CBA negotiation for an extension has talks of this set timeline.

I sure hope we don't overpay a guy that some experts predicted as a 2nd round pick.

I gotta disagree. Rosenhaus has a number of other clients on our team. He knows how the Rooney's work. If he stays out of camp, there will BE NO CONTRACT.

I totally feel that he will get signed before camp starts, but everybody wants a few first rounders signed before they start throwing money around
