If Cams agent did this it would be breaking news on ESPN with lol hash tags



Stupid is as stupid does I guess.

[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif][size=4]Cook represents Seahawks quarterback[url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7460/russell-wilson"]Russell Wilson[/url]. And Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that an unnamed representative of Wilson ([i]i.e.[/i], Cook or someone who works for him) called the Seahawks this week “insisting that something be done” to adjust Wilson’s slotted third-round rookie contract.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif][size=4]Something definitely will be done. In two years.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif][size=4]As we’ve mentioned plenty of times (and specifically [url="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/09/russell-wilson-wont-be-able-to-cash-in-for-two-more-years/"]in relation to Wilson[/url]), the new CBA prevents rookie contracts from being renegotiated until three of the mandatory four years have been completed. While Mort gives Cook an escape hatch by suggesting that the call may have been placed in jest, it’s a joke that the statement was even uttered to the Seahawks.[/size][/font][/color][/quote]

To be fair, Wilson will be criminally underpaid for the rest of his rookie deal.

who cares? Why do we have to always make everything about Cam and why do we post things in the Panthers forum that should be in the NFL Central forum?

Offseason. Not too much Panthers news in the offseason.

Then he should be pissed at the NFLPA for agreeing to the new rookie wage scale that ties him to that contract. Nothing the Seahawks can do about it.

Well, of course the media would react differently if it was Cam. Cam didn't make the playoffs.

True, but it's much better than the old system. I'd hate to be having cap discussions regarding Cam.

Not buying it. Cook is no idiot. He knows the new agreement does not allow it, so unless he is prepared to take on the league in court, there is no way it can happen.

It think it's ESPN being ESPN.
