Surprise - Winslow Plays Hard to Get!

Winslow Rejects Brown's Offer\


Our favorite "soldier-boy" Kellen Winslow II has rejected an offer by the Browns which *matched* what the Skins gave to Taylor - one spot ahead of him! That is an amazing deal since lower picks almost always get lower $$ contracts - but as expected KWII and the Postons werent' satisfied. Looks like he'll be AWOL for training camp. The contract they offered would have been more than Tony Gonzalez is making! Apparently, KWII wants to be paid more than A-Rod and Shaq...

Anyone still upset that we didn't land this ass-clown?

What a joke. He is going to get booed everywhere he goes at this rate. Cleveland ought to right now withdraw its offer and offer less. If he dont sign then trade his butt. Who would want him though with the price he is asking? Maybe he will get smart and fire the Polstens-i doubt it though. They deserve each other.

That's the best news I've heard all day.

At least he's still a soldier...

I still wouldnt mind having winslow, hes a great TE. But when he named the Postons as his agents then there was no point in picking him.

Imagine if Winslow picked an agent the skins liked, like Rosenhaus, then fired them after the draft...lol

He may have, except I don't think he (and mainly his father) had a CLUE how seriously the Redskins wanted to avoid Postons. There are supposedly 5 NFL teams that WILL NOT draft anyone they represent. If Winslow has a major holdout, I would expect that number to dramatically increase. Their rep just keeps sinking with every stupid move they make.

Yeah, Frank Herzog on Channel 9 (DC Area) was laughing about it, saying the Redskins made the right choice with Taylor

I think the players know exactly what they're getting into when they pick their agents. For example, Robert Gallery told his agents to make sure that he had a deal in place before the start of training camp. Further, our own Sean Taylor picked agents who he knew would get him into camp on time (he knew the value that being around for training camp would have).

The Postons represent everything negative about the agent stereotype. They have consistently made their clients holdout for extended periods of time. Some of the players they represent that have been slapped with the franchise tag have been instructed by the Postons to skip camp. They represent football as a financial decision, not a sport, not a passion. They are agents who teach players about money rather than loyalty and teamwork.

Bottomline: I guess, to a certain extent, you can tell what kind of player someone is by the agent they pick.

the postons are jokes, they always recommend holding out to try and pressure teams into more money... they've gotten their way, but at a high price... some clubs have stopped dealing with them, and each time they rachet for another million, more bridges burn... i can't believe anyone would bother dealing with them.

This makes me more glad each day that we picked Taylor. It would be real funny if Kellen sits out all the way through our matchup with the Browns.

He turned down a contract to make him the highest paid TE ever!!!! More than Gonzalez, more than Shockey. And he turned down a contract equal to Taylor. 60 receptions last year x 5 years = 300 total receptions in a 20million $$ contract that's $66,666.67 a reception!
I hope this chucle-head holds out all pre-season.
What a jackass.
