But, with 2 weeks left until TC, it's a little strange to see NOT ANY 1st Rounders and ONLY ONE 2nd rounder sewn up. Will this be a year of the "chicken." Here's hoping that, independent of what happens with the rest of the teams, our front office blinks first.

[From the NFL Labor site] (http://nfllabor.com/2010/07/09/two-weeks-%E2%80%98til-camp-nearly-half-of-draft-picks-signed/)

Two weeks ‘til camp: Nearly half of draft picks signed
With the first training camp opening in exactly two weeks

47 percent of this year’s draft choices have signed contracts.

Through July 8 (based on official notification to the league office), 119 of the 255 players selected in the 2010 NFL Draft have signed contracts – up from 39 percent of draft choices (101 of 256) signed as of July 8, 2009 and 29 percent of selections (73 of 252) signed as of July 8, 2008.

These things can get done in a flurry too though. I'm semi-expecting a 2 or 3 day holdout from Kareem just because we'll be waiting on Haden to get done which could take a while. I expect everyone else to be in camp on time though, especially Tate given the time he's already missed.

I'm a bit surprised that Dickerson has not signed yet.

You know, reading through, that was the first thought I had. I would assume that most of the 7th rounders have signed by now. I wonder what the hold up is?

Often the hold-u is no more than the team and agent communicating with later round draft picks. The 1st and 2nd rounders a litle more concern once it gets under a week or so.

Can't think of any reason unless he's injured with a question mark.......or with his "change of position" or potential double duty, he has reassessed his value significantly above the Texans'.

From reading his twitter comments early on, I would say it was a combination of his (or his agent's) perceived value, and the Texans wondering about his maturity leve and ability to grasp the concept of the NFL.

Could you elaborate?

Could have something to do with Mike Mayock calling him a 2nd round pick all through the draft process. He probably wants to be the highest paid 7th rounder and I doubt we're offering anything over slot $.

I can't remember specific posts, but I have been following him on twitter since the draft. He tweeted a whole bunch of stuff that made me say "Whoa, somebody needs to tell this guy that the Texans FO doesn't like to see this kind of stuff. Usually just immature stuff like cursing and showing pics of playing stupid pranks and what not. Nothing serious, but a little troubling and made me wonder about his maturity in the back of my mind. Could be that I'm just a bit old school and think that a rook should be quiet and humble.

Ya know, just a gut feeling for me. I could be totally wrong. Time will tell.

I saw all of this stuff on twitter too, I had trouble deciding whether it was harmless fun or a sign that he's kind of a bonehead and isn't worth the trouble since he is such a developmental prospect. We don't see the locker room though, he could be a really hard worker and a quiet learner and just happens to use twitter loosely and he's trying to be the cool new guy, I don't know. If you ask me I think the hold up is him wanting to be paid way over slot money.
