    Poston client holding out (no this is not old news)

    Chargers | Merriman Won't Take Part in Offseason Workouts - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 5 May 2005 16:57:48 -0700

    The San Diego Chargers have announced rookie LB Shawne Merriman has notified them he has retained Kevin Poston as his new agent. Poston has told the Chargers that he will not allow Merriman to take part in the team's offseason program unless they change their standard injury protection language. As a result, Merriman will miss the team's offseason program. General manager A.J. Smith said the team will open negotiations with Merriman in early July.
    Sounds like someone got burned by their client being injured not too long ago...

    Chargers | Issue Statement on Merriman - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 5 May 2005 20:50:55 -0700

    Updating previous reports, according to Chargers.com, San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith has issued a statement regarding rookie LB Shawne Merriman and his agent Kevin Poston's decision not to participate team's offseason program unless the team changed its standard injury protection language. "This injury protection language is intended to deal with situations when a player is injured before he is under contract," Smith wrote. "The Chargers' language is standard, and the Chargers have reached fair contract agreements with the only two players over the years that were injured before they were under contract. We are disappointed that Shawne Merriman will miss the team's offseason program. We will open contract negotiations with Shawne's agent in early July. We look forward to Shawne being a Charger and joining the team in training camp."

    The San Diego Chargers have announced rookie LB Shawne Merriman has notified them he has retained Kevin Poston as his new agent.
    Notice how this was done AFTER the draft? I would almost bet he would have dropped a few notches if he had declared himself a Postonite before the draft.
