Hold Outs

QB Carson Palmer – says he wants out, or he will retire (as Jake Plummer did a few years ago). So far, the Bengals are not budging.

RB Chris Johnson – he wants his money and nobody can blame him, fork up Tennessee

WR Desean Jackson – he deserves a payday and extension, but at what cost? He is not a top 5 WR, but he is a top 5 dynamic player in the NFL. With his special teams duties in question because of player acquisitions and past injuries, does that lower his value?

DE Osi Umenyiora – play out your contract, you are easily replaceable. The Giants have a good scheme, and they have several DEs on the squad that are more than capable.
