Lance Briggs

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's in the fourth year of a six year deal. This certainly isn't the first time I've seen this scenario before, and I'm sure it won't be the last. I also would like to see the agents get some of ...

He is good but he is a giant pain in the a-s!!

We don't need someone making a scazillion dollars who isn't satisfied with their contract.

These prima-donnas need to figure it out.

Too pricy. Maybe we could have Kruetz try to talk him into signing with the Saints for less like he did ... but that would be tampering I'm sure.

That would be a necessity with the Brees signing looming.

Im just curious, if anyone here considers Eli a cry baby, considering he actually refused to sign with SD on draft day, and demanded a trade?

Rookies used to be the cash cow of the NFL agents, signing fat bonuses for no past performance, based simply on the fact that a team has very little leverage to say they won't sign him when they used their first pick in the draft on a guy. Now the new CBA has that all over, so the agents have to look at pushing bigger contracts for franchise type guys like Briggs and Brees and Co. So yeah, they are going to start pushing these guys' egos and making them ask their teams for upwards of 15 mil a year in order to make up for all the losses in rookie contracts.
