Saints left tackle Jammal Brown, who missed all of the 2009 season due to injury, is a restricted free agent. He has yet to sign his one-year, $3.619 million tender offer, and he doesn’t plan to participate in the offseason workout program.
“I don’t consider it a holdout. I’m just patiently waiting,” Brown told Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Yeah, it’s not a holdout. He’s only, um, holding out. Patiently.
That said, the workouts are voluntary, and Brown isn’t under contract. That said, he has traditionally taken part in the workouts.
“Of course I want to be there,” Brown said. “I’ve been there every year in the past. But I’ve got to let my agent
handle that part of the business. He’s a good agent. He’ll get it
It’s unlikely that Brown will sign an offer sheet before the window closes in two days. And if he wants to be traded (he reportedly hinted at some West Coast teams possibly being interested), Brown will need to sign his contract first.
