I don't think there will be that much of a problem - atleast, I hope not.

I agree but it sure will put every ones mind at ease once they get the contract signed.

Can you say camp hold out? If he doesn't sign until preseason I wouldn't be surprised at all... said that the moment he was drafted.

I agree, pay him the money and let's get ready for football.

I believe that Bush will sign before camp for 2 reasons:
First, I think that anyone that does this much for the community BEFORE he signs will
not be a hold out.
Secondly, I think Benson won't go cheap this time.
He knows that this kid is one of the best things to happen to this franchise during his tenure.
IMO

On ESPN they were floating the rumor that Bush was asking for an 8% increase over what the #2 received last year. They said that was a fair markup, and fair market value. They also said he wanted to keep it hush hush so as not to become a distraction. This was said on a program, so I can't post a link.

As with any contract, I would say the biggest issue is probably guaranteed money, or at least incentives that are very likely to be earned. The total dollar value of the contract means very little. I do not think Benson is going to low ball him. Benson does have a reputation of being a little bit cheap, in his defense I will say he normally does the right thing with the stars of his teams. He pretty much demonstrated that throughout his tenure as owner.
