BY THE NUMBERS: $15,000 -- Amount of money that separates Saints officials and rookie wide receiver Devery Henderson from reaching contractual agreement. Henderson and his agent, Jimmy Sexton, are seeking a signing bonus of $1.425 million and team officials have offered $1.41 million. Henderson has missed the first nine practices.
Can you say IDIOT! Sexton should be fired. Henderson is losing valuable practice time over $15,000?! :o

$15,000 will cause Henderson to sit his butt on the bench all season.
An organization is going to make you an instant millionaire and you're
quibbling over $15,000?

Just Dumb.

Yeah. I read that article this morning and thought the same thing. 15k is sure costing him a lot. :casstet:

That 15, 000 may seem silly to the outsider, but it could be very important to any nfl rookie...
for example, that 15 large could by one spinning 20 inch rim for his new pimped out Escalade... gold caps for his dogs teeth... the entire girls gone wild series for himself and all his peeps...
or a down payment on a new agent that won\'t screw up his career...

if he continues to hold out, who\'s going to be there to carry Joe\'s and Donte\'s bags...

Cause that\'s about the only thing he\'ll be doing this year, anyways, is carrying there bags around.

Unfortunately, he was too high a pick to put him on the practice squad. It\'s a shame that one of our guys out there who is truly working hard to earn a spot is probably going to be cut so we can keep Henderson even though he would rather haggle over $15k than get in camp.

ps. NOLAmite, that\'s a fine line you\'re walking in your post between humorous/crude behavior and overtly offensive behavior. I\'m no moderator at this site, but I think a majority of this site\'s patrons are not going to applaud your racial stereotyping.

Like I said, your post is in that \"gray\" area of whether it is or not offensive, but my advoce to you is one of caution. I, for one, want this site to be as friendly and open as possible.

I\'m not sure either how NOLAmite meant the post but I\'m sure we can all agree acting like an idiot isn\'t a black or white thing. ALL men and/or women have the capacity to be stupid. It\'s just a shame Devery is letting his agent lead him down this road. I\'d bet, if Saints fans had known this was the amount three weeks ago, they\'d have taken donations to get him into camp.

Uh-oh ScottyRo, esquire - your own personal feelings are clouding your judgment. That\'s bad for a lawyer, no?

NOLAmite didn\'t make ANY reference to color in any way shape or form. If he was stereotyping, he was stereotyping NFL Players, not one ethnicity versus another. Well, maybe not, but to immediately assume that he was making a comment about African Americans in general shows YOUR prejudice! :P Gotcha lawyer boy! LOL

Too bad, but you didn\'t quite get me. All I did was respond to the natural essence of what was said and what it implied. I only read into it what was there.

For instance, if you told me that you put something solid and cold in my drink, I would assume you meant ice although you never said ice. You can\'t come back later and say that I\'m prejudiced against ice because you were talking about metal pellets you had kept in the freezer.

I think we\'re all grown up enough to know what he was saying. It may very well have simply been in jest. My intent was simply to caution NOLAmite about the post so that this board doesn\'t deteriorate into what I have heard the Nola.com board has become.

Lastly, I never mentioned African-Americans either. So, what does that say about your prejudices since your mind went there on its own?

One thing I was wondering, how much of this is the agent and how much is the player? Not only in this case, but in all of the rookie contract negotiations. Does anybody know the true answer? Does the player have any say in it at all, or does the player have total control?


I didn\'t find his comments racist. In fact, most of the people I know that watch GGW are caucasian. Besides, he said 20\'s not 22\'s. :P

I don\'t know the true answer, but I would guess that it is the player who has all the control. The agent is an employee of the player.
