stupid!

Isn't he having to pay the NFL 30k a day that he holds out? I think I heard that's a new rule this year...

Look.... we're talking about one of the most premier running backs of the modern era. Pay the man for god's sake. The Titan's front office doesn't really have a choice here anyway considering they have one of the most impotent offenses in the league with or without CJ. At least give yourselves a chance and secure the man for the long term.

I don't think it'll matter too much to him when he gets that multi-year and multi-million dollar contract. It'll just be chump change when he becomes one of the highest paid RB's in the league.

If I'm in his position, I tell the Titans "I get a new contract now or I'm gone after this season and you get nothing." Problem solved.

con·tract noun \ˈkän-ˌtrakt\
1 a : a binding agreement between two or more persons or parties; especially : one legally enforceable
b : a business arrangement for the supply of goods or services at a fixed price <make parts on contract> c : the act of marriage or an agreement to marry
2: a document describing the terms of a contract

3: the final bid to win a specified number of tricks in bridge

4: an order or arrangement for a hired assassin to kill someone <his enemies put out a contract on him>

play out your contract. Not just CJ but all players. If a player feels he is outplaying the current contract, don't agree to the contract. Simple.

Rookies don't have much of a choice on how much their contract is. If he had been a free agent, I'd completely agree with you. They're going to lose their best player because of this just to save some money this year.

Hold out the entire season. That way week 14 is a little bit easier for us.

Totally agree with what you're saying, but here's the problem; if a guy gets hurt, his play declines, they want a different system, they can cut a guy and do not have to fulfill the terms of their part of the contract.

It has to work both ways...

In the NFL, make our a scheduled performance rate and the winning MVP on the Superbowl Champions is your richest guy that season...

...you'd truly get what you pay for...
