    2 Days until camp and we haven't gotten our 1, 2, 2 3rd, and the 2 6th rounder signed. How bad is your negotiation skills if you can not get a 6th rounder signed before the start of training camp.

    Every year, some of us sweat this contract stuff and it always seems to get it done at the final minute.

    Barron's situation is one he cannot dictate. Unless someone above him, any of them, sign a contract it would be almost foolish for him to because of sign on bonus calculations.

    I would be more concerned about Pace if he was holding out again instead of the rookies.

    Just saw where the QB for the whiners signed. Watch the domino effect happen now.

    Tx is right. With Smith signing in gay bay (I still can't believe they gave a rookie $24 M in guaranteed money), the 1st round signings will start pouring in. Barron will be along shortly, as will Bartell, Atogwe, & Incognito. There's been no mentioning of holdouts, so I wouldn't sweat it any.

    Re: Anyone else getting a little nervous?

    Why in the world would anyone conclude that there is something wrong with the rams negotiating skils because some of these picks arent signed? Did you ever negotiate anything in this type of business context? It takes two sides to want to make a deal, these dollar amounts are very close to slotted, what makes you think that the rams are not willing to pay market. We cant sign these guys at any cost just to get them in camp.

    I would just chaulk it up to the Rams waiting to see how the other first round contracts pan out. Now that guys like Smith, Washington, and Mankins have signed, I'm sure they're working on it.

    Hey, at least we're not hearing him in the press talking about holding out if a deal isn't done.

    Speaking of holdouts, the only 1st round-hold-out I've heard of is Merriman (the only Poston 1st-rounder I know of, too). Has anyone heard chatter of any other holdouts?

    After rookie camp, I don't think there's any way Barron will miss a day of training camp if he wants to start this season. I expect all players, especially Barron, to sign before the start of camp.

    In a word, no. He was the 19th pick.

    Now That Smith Has Signed Everything Should Fall Into Place.
