Colts sign Rock Ya-Sin and Parris Campbell

Recommended Posts

It's always interesting when a guy in the second round holds out a bit even after the first pick was signed

What do you imagine that he could be holding out for?  The money is locked in right as are the number of years?

Off set language?   How the bonus is paid out?    

 

Those are the only two that come to mind...

Rookie contracts are standard. What has to be negotiated is the incentives. I don’t think he is holding out.

I like it. Get Okereke signed and we can focus on OTA's. Can't wait to see what the rookies can do!

Okereke can still participate in OTAs even if he doesn't sign.

It's a Grand Canyon sized leap to call this a holdout.

Could be back at Stanford finishing classes as well.....?

 

I do remember when we drafted Luck he was a little late, as I think Stanford gets out of classes a couple weeks after most schools.

It's a little early to peg him as "holding out".  It could be as simple as they havn't gotten together with him about it yet.  

 

Honestly I wouldn't consider him holding out unless the Colts say the negotiations are problematic or they havn't signed him by July.

Off set language is pretty much the only reason these days that contracts have the slightest bit of negotiation over.

Like others have said it's not really a hold out. He's participating in OTA's right now it seems. 

 

And like @NewColtsFan said the main reasons for delays of contract signings for the rookies is the off-set language in their contracts usually.

Okay, so thanks to all who responded, but what offset language is really at issue? Is it the same thing the Chargers DE held out for, or is it a variety of things? It seems like a high 1st rounder has power to hold out over "offset" language, but do these guys have any real power? If not, what is the deal? If they DO have power, would the Colts simply say no and the guy sits out over it? Does anyone actually KNOW the reason?  When Bosa held out, they announced the details of why, has anyone heard any point of contention with either of these guys? Or is it just a "guess" that it is "offset language?"

    • Seems odd in general that it took so long.  Outside of the guy in SD, we rarely hear why someone holds out this long on a mundane contract with so little to quibble over. 
    • One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run.  With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them.  He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air.  No wonder our run defense was so stout.  Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game...  You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
    • I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered.  That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills...  I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level.  A combination of all 3.
    • This is a big compliment for KM.    
    • No, if he wants to go be a gm somewhere who are we to hold him back from that.
