sounds like he is looking for a final deal. At 27 seems hard to believe that this is his last contract unless he plans on retiring early. He should lower the price, doubt he gets double figure signing bonus.

So the only logical thing to me that could be holding up his signing seems to be a contract.
Yet in another article you posted subsequent to this, they state that the Giants have a conflict within their organization (front office v. coaching staff) and that they aren't sure if he's the right fit or how much they can afford. Why do we presume that all of these clubs have made their offers to Lavar? Is it possible the holdup is on their end, not Lavar's?

And I guess I still don't understand what the problem is here? He's seeing who is going to give him the best deal? Ok, is that different than any other player in free agency? Is he the first player to take his time finding both 1. the right fit, and 2. the best contract? Is there something wrong with that? The only other time he had a chance to test the market, he forewent that opportunity to sign a long-term contract with the Skins. He could have waited and tested free agency, but didn't, regardless of whether he could have gotten more money from another team or not.

get your facts straight. the nflpa filed a grievance on his agents for being stupid. his agents (WHO HAD TO HAVE HIS PERMISSION) filed a totally seperate grievance with the skins. Regardless of what he may of said, his actions are what actually count, an he had no problems having his agents file the grievance, and made no attempt to discontinue it.

going by what he said is stupid, cause thats NOT what he did. whether or not that makes him a liar is up to you.

Re: latest on LaVar

the peterson deal. JP got a 54$mill contract and he's sorta in the same injury-released boat with lavar, and they have the same agents.

the poston figure they can wait to see if someone will bite with another crazy deal.

I didn't say anything is wrong with him looking for the best deal. Of course there's nothing wrong with that, I was just pointing out that money is one of his deciding factors. Somebody said LaVar isn't about the money... I was just pointing out stories that contradict that statement.

Ok, I'm good with that. I have no doubt money is a factor, I just don't think that fact supports the hater comments out there (not by you) that seem to suggest that money is the ONLY factor and that money was always the only factor and that Lavar has never cared about anything but the money.........simply because he's trying to get the best deal he can now.

Re: latest on LaVar

who doesn't try to get the best deal?

ryan clark this year (starting and being on a winner was more important, he could have done better)...

tom brady (winning and having a better supporting cast)...

there are others, but its still pretty rare.

Nice work 56. You are clueless about how it really is. You might want to sharper up your skills when debating your love for LaVar. I thinked him too, but he saw himself too much on TV and listened too much to the media. Get a clue. It's ALL about the money.

I never said it wasn't about money, what the hell are you talking about. I said all players are looking to get paid. so what is your point? would you go back and look at a post between me and Matty, and I cleary state the above. what the hell is wrong with you. dont call me clueless asswipe, until you read my previous post.

asswipe, just in case you cant go back and look at what I previously posted here it is :

You still think he's not about the money??

Everybody is about the money. Whoever says they're not is lieing.


All players want to get paid, no doubt. I had just not heard how much he was asking for. Hey Moulds old ass is asking for 10 mil, and so is Law. No way either one of those guys get it either.

Re: latest on LaVar

Enough already! Can we all shut up about Arrington? This is all going to look pretty funny when he gets cut from his new contract in 2 years and resigns with us. Just like Trotter did with the Eagles, Lavar will do with the Redskins. Lavar is going to retire a Redskin. Anyway that's what my magic 8 ball says will happen.

I'd love that Riggo (both shuting up about Arrington and having him come back).
