Default AJ no show/now back to work

Absent from OTA's due to contract stuff, per 610.

Pay the man. He is the best WR in football, give him the keys to the city.

Really? Contract stuff/ I thought he signed a new deal not very long ago

Edit: He signed a 6 year deal before the 2007-2008 season worth 60 million with 15 guaranteed.

Bob McNair is a cheapskate.

There got that out of the way.

AJ is three years into an eight year deal.

Well, this really sucks. If the Texans don't pay AJ I'll freak out I think.

Maybe its just something that will get worked out quick, I hope so.

He's signed thru 2014! Screw him if he is using higher team exectations as a means to line his pockets with another $30 million.

Default Re: AJ no show.

Why do players need to work out a new contract when they have a great one in place already?

I just don't get it.

AJ is still the man and should be payed whatever it is to keep him but I guess I just don't understand the process.

He's grabbing for another signing bonus out of fear of no football in 2011, is my guess. Plus, it turns out that he is a greedy b*stard. Dang it!

Isn't his contract pretty small compared to the other WR around the league?

He's good so pay the man cause somebody else will. Overpay the man.

Yikes, I was not expecting this at all. And to think HBO passed over us for the JETS.

But seriously, he has a long-term contract already in place. Doesnt he know their are other players are this team who have not gotten paid like him?

AJ, love ya bro, but it ain't happening this year. With 5 years left on his existing deal I don't think he should get it.

In the end, it's the 1st OTA. If he doesn't show in June, I'll begin to worry. Until then, meh.

Default Re: AJ no show.

I am very sympathetic towards players holding out for a deal when they haven't had a big contract yet. A guy like OD, who was drafted in the 4th round, could get injured and never really cash in on his effort and production. Even a guy like A.Boldin, who was drafted late in the 2nd round, has been a great player but unable to score a deal that represents all he's accomplished. However, AJ was given a monster contract as a rookie and then an enormous extension. So, he's received about $40 million in only signing bonuses, not to mention salary. If he does this, I think I'm going to have to boo him.

Default Re: AJ no show.

Eh, he's getting paid about 7.7 million a year (with signing bonus incl) and is number 8 on the WR salaries chart. He will likely drop to 9 once Brandon Marshall gets his money.

Here are the 2009 numbers according to the USA Today:
WR Salaries 2009

Edit: sorry, Antonio Bryant won't be in the Top 10 next year, since his current contract is up. AJ should be number 8 next year, unless some other WR gets big bucks like Miles Austin.

Jesus, what ever happened to honoring your freakin" contract! I could easily understand Chris Johnson situation in regards to his contract, but Andre already got his mega deal.

This offseason does not need anymore drama.
