Worst thing Arizona can do

Recommended Posts

Is to give in and redo Patrick Peterson's deal.  Though they could pay him after 2014 but if they allow him to hold out and force them to give him a new deal.  Then the rookie salary cap will have been a waste of time.    All the benefits of the 5th year option will go out the window and every good rookie will hold out.

 

Opinions?

Fug em, I couldn't care less about their salary situation. He's not going to change what the NFL and NFLPA agreed upon during the lockout.

When did we start caring about what other teams are or might be doing?

When we learned the definition of precedent.

Maybe you should....I think the OP's point is that if Peterson does hold out what is to stop other players around the league, under their rookie contract, from doing the same?  An interesting situation actually.  Peterson doesn't really have a case because of the CBA but stranger things have happened, especially when a popluar (and arguably the best DB, fug you Sherman) player is involved.

Players won't hold out now. And if they do, they won't hold out for long. The NFL made sure they had hold-outs over a barrel when the latest CBA was negotiated.

Peterson does have a case to hold out. The new CBA only prevents new players from forcing a new deal after years 1 or 2 (a la Chris Johnson). Therefore he can force the team in to giving him a new deal after year 3 or else be without his services until they do.

Now the teams don't have to give in because they have them under contract for a 4th season and an option for a 5th if they were a 1st rounder. But new players do have a right to hold out after their 3rd season if they want.
