Green loses patience with Leinart's holdout

Leinart and Condon are a-holes. 14 Million guaranteed for the 10th pick is not good enough?


FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green has lost his patience with rookie Matt Leinart and his contract holdout.

Green sharply criticized Leinart and his representatives on Monday for rejecting "a more than generous" offer from the team.

"It is an outstanding contract," Green said. "It's $14 million guaranteed."

Green said the deal is far more than a 10th pick would normally receive.

Leinart's agent, Tom Condon, did not return a telephone message seeking a response to Green's comments.

I'd call Condon more of an a-hole then Leinart but this is just getting ridiculous
Leinart is burying himself

It's at the point similar to Rivers in 2004. The Cards better hope that Warner doesn't go down, because Leinart will not be up to speed in the offense for a good part of the season.

I wonder if the GM takes the lead from AJ, and do a "Gates".... probably not possible, but it helped get his A.s.s. in camp....
That doesn't pertain to drafted rookies. I think it only is applicable to ERFA's (and maybe RFA's).

No, but their attitudes seem to match so far. :icon_wink:
All I remember is he threw that little 2 yard TD in the first preseason game, and I thot the Chargers were gonna be in good shape at QB for quite awhile.

Sure was wrong on that account. :icon_eek: :no: :icon_sad: :icon_evil:
