Doktor Ivel said:he prolly is askiong way to much, since hes holding out for Green Bay, but he had a breakout season last year, and he doesnt get along with Brett Favre....
but i am guessing he wants way to much money
AZfinfan said:I was refering to injury and not performance. Someone stated that a player can be cut when hurt and the team has no obligation to pay him. This is the part that I was refering to. There are certain situation where I can understand a player using leverage to improve there position. But I hate it. Walker has had one good year he should suit up and play for a larger contract this year.

brech10 said:I see your point about players honoring their contract, but in a way...they have some right. NFL contracts are not guaranteed so if a player blows out a knee or has a bad season they get cut, right? So isn't the team not honoring the contract.
Basically, why should a player "honor his contract" when his employer has such a long history of not honoring anybody's contract.
finmann said:I hate this trend of so many players holding out to renegotiate their contracts. It seems like this year has been the most that I can remember for a long time, in fact the most that I can remember ever. Players should honour their contracts period.
The team does honor the contract. For crying out loud the signing bonus is a guarantee the player will be paid for signing with the team even if they don't play a single down!!!! The CBA allows for the team to cut players. How hard is this for people to understand. The players have extended this CBA twice and never have they said they won't extend it because they are afraid they can be cut.Philter25 said:Read the "greedy" thread.
So if a player should "honor" their contracts PERIOD, shouldnt a team also? I mean we cut Fiedler, but he had a contract and he honored it, we should have honored it also, right?
