I'm sure he has about 3 years left on his first deal. Larry has 2 ways to play it, demand more $$ now (Portis), or wait till after next season and get a huge pay day.

I think I remember him getting a five year deal. So he has two years left. I think he gets a new deal next offseason.

The Status?

The Status is, he's about to say "hey Carl, I'm the #4 rusher in the NFL in 8 starts....Clifford Franklin need to get paid."

Carl, meanwhile is hoping to draft LinDale White in the 2nd round as leverage for the holdout.

He's under contract for a few more years, but he'll probably expect a raise before the end of that contract. Deservedly so.

LJ gets anything he wants. Chiefs will give an incentive lading new contract as soon as the new cap numbers come in.

I heard somewhere that he wants an extension this offseason, if not, he won't play.

What I would do is tell him to do what he did this year for a full year, then in the offseason next year, we'll make you a very rich man.

VT: doesn't matter what you would do.

You guys kill me thinking you run the freaking show and people are just going to accept your demands (if you were GM or whatever).

What would you do if you were LJ? LJ is THE MAN NOW. Not next year and you'd be doing the exact same thing he's about to do this year as he would.

Having said that... if you were LJ would you take the "wait to see what you do next year" approach when you damn near shattered every fuccing major NFL single season rushing record on a limited number of carries / starts?

Start thinking for once. And stop just blabbering to be blabbering.
No noone shitted in my cornflakes just get tired of the people not understanding the players predicament in the (business aspect of the) NFL.

LJ even said himself that he hasn't done it for a whole year yet and that he hasn't proven anything. He ruined his leverage right there. I want the guy to get paid too, but not until he does it for a full season, which I'm sure he will. I can't wait as a matter of fact. Dude is great.

LJ also said... we'll have to wait until the end of the season to see about that. Why do you think he fired his agent and got one of the most succesful agents around?

LJ is about to be a very rich man (coming tihs summer to a television near you).

Because the few million he already has does not make him already a very rich man? :hmmm:
