Given Carl's reputation, it's gonna be Derrick Johnson.

It seems like Merriman is well-positioned to be a problem, given his agents, and Braylon Edwards seems like he could be a prima donna at a draft position where there will be lots of wiggle room. (Big dollar range between 2nd and 4th contracts, and he's also sandwiched between several running backs.)

However, my pick is going to be Pacman Jones. He appears to have a (warning: understatement ahead) very strong self-image and will want lots of bucks while at the same time will be handling negotiations using his one call per day from the jail.

I thought Merriman might be the guy, but he just signed with the Chargers.

I voted Edwards.

You do know that Williamson and Williams have at least agreed to terms right? and Rodgers too

Anyway, I say PacMan. Those discussions will be very tricky, as Titans Mgmt is gonna CYA big time!

No. I rely on laz for all of my information. Maybe I should complain to his boss.

Hasn't Aaron Rogers signed with the Packers already?

I'm thinking Aaron Rodgers, Merriman or Rolle will be the longest holdouts. Rodgers may want to get paid like a top 5 because before the draft he was competing for the #1 overall pick with Smith. Rolle probably thinks he's worth more than where he was drafted and Merriman had that issue with showing up a couple of months ago. dunno though

I voted for Merriman. It seems like everything has been an issue with this guy. It won't break my heart if the competition doesn't get their guy in on time.

The one I don't understand is Pac Man Jones. That guy should sign at whatever the Titans are offering just so he can get the guaranteed money before going to jail or dealing with league suspensions.
