Wondering why there is no announcement on KCCHiefs.com yet? NFL Net has yet to say anything as well, I am and have been watching since about 2pm cst. I hope this isn't just a preannounced mess up.


Its not up yet because he hasn't signed yet . Its a deal that is done " so to speak " just not signed yet. He will be at Tommorows afternoon practice the way it sounds !

Great news. At least he isn't a jackbag like Mr. Crabtree. What a joke!

it looks like crabtree never said that. they are denying it. a cousin of his is one that started the rumor. so dont start bashing him for something he never said.

Crabtree didn't say that, either his cousin or advisor did. They talked to Crabtree and he said "he doesn't know where this came from"

A representative of his did say it. If you are not on the same page as your agent, then why would you want him to work for you? Him firing his agent would have spoke volumes as to his denying this.
from PFT: Multiple sources say Parker threatened year-long holdout
Posted by Mike Florio on August 6, 2009 8:37 PM ET
I'll admit that I got a little pissy earlier today regarding the proliferation of reports that accepted at face value the denials from the 49ers that agent Eugene Parker threatened the team that receiver Michael Crabtree will sit out the entire 2009 season if the Niners don't cave in to Parker's demands.

But I'm not sorry for how I responded. I'm sorry for putting myself in position that I had to respond the way I had to respond. (Hey, Antonio Pierce should sell that one to Hallmark. Unless and until he does, it's fair game.)

And given the lingering confusion on this issue, let me be clear. Three sources have now said that Parker made the threat.

One source says that Parker specifically tied a season-long holdout to a contract that exceeds the package that the Raiders gave to Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh overall pick in round one.

It previously was believed that Parker was looking for a top-five deal. Apparently, he is aiming two spots lower.

If he'll move only three more spots lower, maybe Crabtree can get to work and prove that he's worth his contract, and more.

Regardless, the threat was made. It would be beyond stupid for Parker to follow through on it, but the threat was made.

Now, if any of you keep sending me links to reports to the contrary, I'm gonna turn this car around and drive home.

Back on topic, Jackson officially signed his contract today. He'll make $57 million over 5 years, $31 million guaranteed, and will start practicing on Monday.

Note this works out to 11.4 a year, and Jared Allen makes 12 a year... I'd be lying if I said I wasn't crying a little bit inside.

You can blame inflated rookie contracts and an absurd scaling practice for 1st round draft picks.

Seriously I don't blame the agents/player or the front office as much as I blame the NFLs absurd policy in allowing this too happen. There are more deserving players worth the money then a wet behind the ears rookie.

This is why I hate having a high draft pick outside of mocks; the price tag always comes back to bite you in the ***.

If you look at all of the rookies not in camp, that alone should be enough to let Goodell know to implement a rookie salary cap.

Agreed. I'm sure if Pioli could've traded out of this pick, he would had jumped on it. But its part of the price you pay for fixing somebody elses screw-ups. I don't think we'll have to worry about picking this high again in the forseeable future.
That being said, I think Jackson will be a stud for us and I'm glad he's signed and in camp.

So how much short of the minimum salary cap number are we now?
