Titans training camp begins with Chance Warmack unsigned

Chance Warmack AP

The new Collective Bargaining Agreement removes most of the room for negotiating rookie contracts and therefore has eliminated most rookie holdouts. But “most” does not mean “all.”

Chance Warmack, the Titans’ first-round draft pick, remains unsigned, and the Titans’ training camp has begun.

The issue appears to be that the Titans and Warmack’s agent haven’t come to an agreement on whether offset language will be included in Warmack’s contract. That’s the major sticking point that remains in rookie contract negotiations across the league and is believed to be holding up deals for Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher (first overall), Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper (seventh) and Jets cornerback Dee Milliner (ninth) as well.

The Titans selected Warmack with the 10th overall pick and are expecting him to start from Day One. Titans coach Mike Munchak said on Wednesday that he considers Warmack a major part of the offensive line and think it’s important to get Warmack in camp as soon as possible, but at least one practice is taking place without the big guard.

    Chance is reportedly trying to add “a free lifetime McDonald’s giftcard” to the contract before he signs

    Calling unsigned rookies “holdouts” is right up there with “irregardless” and “I could care less” on my pet peeve list.

    If you believe in your drafting then you shouldn’t need offset language.

    Why? The other two are grammatical mistakes. This one is not. That they’re not under contract yet doesn’t mean they can’t hold out. Signed or not, the team still owns their exclusive rights for a period. If they are not in camp, they’re holding out.

    He’s the 10th overall draft pick. Is he really concerned about getting cut before his first contract is up?

    ================

    If he had an existing contract and was not in camp, he’d be a hold out. He has yet to sign his name to a contract, so that’s not a hold out. He’s simply unsigned.

    Herp a derp. Its pretty simple. If there is ANYTHING to be negotiated. It will be negotiated.

    Sincerely,

    Any agent for anything anywhere anytime.
