Holdouts: How Long Until You Get Pissed?




Let's talk a dirty subject.  Training camp holdouts.  The question here is how long do you expect players to hold out and at what point would you get pissed?

Sean Lee better sign by the beginning of training camp.  I will be angry at him if he doesn't.  I have high hopes for him and Jason Williams to step up and become our ILBs of the future by the end of this season.  He needs every snap and every drill to get there.

Dez Bryant, I fully expect him to hold out 2-3 weeks.  Any longer than 3 weeks I'll get upset, but I'm resigned to a 3 week holdout.  His agent is the man who constructed the infamous Michael Crabtree holdout and held out Felix Jones in '08 for three days.  Furthermore, the Cowboys don't have a pressing need to cave to a holdout.  They have Austin, Williams (who they continue to have rose-colored glasses for), Crayton, and Ogletree.  If neccessary, the Cowboys could go all season without Dez so the Cowboys have leverage to sustain a holdout.  I expect Dez to hold out for a few weeks in search of the best deal and then take the contract after 2-3 weeks.

What do you think will happen, and at what point will you get pissed at a player for holding out?
