  • "Pacman" Jones & Titans reach "impasse"

    To hell with the likes of Barron and "Pacman". These guys haven't proven one darn thing in the real mens league. Screw everything about them and their mama's. I hope they rot in hell.

    Break all unions!!!





    Agent says negotiations for top pick have reached ``impasse''

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Negotiations between Adam ``Pacman'' Jones and the Tennessee Titans reached an impasse Friday, the cornerback's agent said before returning to Jacksonville, Fla.

    That was news to general manager Floyd Reese.

    Huyghue issued a statement Friday afternoon, saying the sides have not been able to reach agreement.

    ``I don't think I've ever seen this,'' Reese said an hour before the Titans kicked off their opening preseason game against Tampa Bay. ``So this one's kind of new. I've only been doing this for 30 years, and this is the first time the press got an e-mail and the GM didn't.''

    Agent Michael Huyghue flew into town Thursday hoping to conclude a contract for Jones, the No. 6 pick in this year's draft and the first defensive player taken. Huyghue told reporters Thursday that both he and Jones know that time is crucial if the cornerback is to have a chance of a productive rookie season.

    Jones has remained in Jacksonville where he is working out with a personal trainer.

    Huyghue said the Titans' total offer was less money than given to cornerback Antrel Rolle, the eighth pick of the draft by Arizona. Rolle signed a six-year, $43 million contract Tuesday with $13.6 million in guaranteed money.

    ``While we made some initial progress in our negotiations, ultimately, the Titans have refused to offer a fair market deal to Adam,'' Huyghue said.

    Reese said he met for less than two hours with Huyghue on Thursday and wasn't told that they had reached an impasse. He said the Titans' offer was slotted at $18 million, between the $19 million for Tampa Bay running back Carnell Williams and $17 million for No. 7 pick Troy Williamson.

    ``We didn't spend much time negotiating, I tell you that,'' he said.

    Huyghue said the Titans' offer included the same compensation as the seventh and eighth picks, but lower amounts for option bonus, total signing bonus and guaranteed money and less incentive money than Rolle.

    The Titans said before starting negotiations last month that they want Jones' contract to include protection for the franchise because he was arrested July 13 on charges of misdemeanor assault and one count of felony vandalism.

    But Reese said they never got far enough in their short talks Thursday to delve into the behavior language.

    The Titans drafted Jones hoping he can fill one of two cornerback slots left open by salary cap decisions. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Jones won the Titans over when he clocked a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash and recorded a 39-inch vertical leap before the draft.

    Let me ask you something, Kevin. Bo Scaife is your cousin, right? If he catches on with and NFL team, (which he almost certainly would have, had he not torn up his knee) would you want him to make as much money as he could, knowing that NFL careers are fleeting?

      I don't mind a player making money. However, I take issue with unproven college boys demanding more loot than five year veterans.

        Do you think he should take less money than the guy that was drafted one slot behind him?

          Depends on the rookie and on the veteran. Don't they slot first rounders anyway?

          Who's camp is Bo in, btw?

              I'll reserve comment until I hear what Keith Bullock has to say on the matter.

                Why the fuck would you possibly care?

                Who cares?

                All I want is for my team to get good football players, and then I want them to put good football players on the field. If they have to pay them 50 cents, great, and if they have to pay them $100 million, so be it.

                I'm completely worn out on the breathless reporting of player salary, as if I'm supposed to give a shit how much it took to sign a 1st round draft pick. Sign the fucker, make your team better, and get on with playing football.
                From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

                For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


                I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

                The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

                  At real jobs, we're not allowed to discuss salary.
                  Well that's true. Employers aren't too keen for the help to get together and figure out what's going on.
