Ahahahh I am guessing Dorsey agent started making ridiculous demands.

#1) Dorsey shows up when he wants to
2) You must pay him 10 mil a year for 6 years the first 2 years in gold coins the chocolate ones.
3) He can play Qb if he choose to do so

All of which seem reasonable.

The Chiefs should force Dorsey to drop 80 lbs and become a dominant RB with his power and explosiveness.

Dont we have a holdout thread as well? Besides although he is the #5 pick who really cares? This is nothing new rookies holdout all the time and end up with more money then proven vets. NFL needs to adapt NBA rookie signing thing. Eliminate holdouts and huge contacts. Anyways id say team thread.

Not sure how this is "good news" Mr. Faider. Our last first round pick missed half of training camp and the first 2 preseason games but still turned out to be the best rookie receiver.

This is depressing news, sorta.

At least the rest of our picks (save our second seventh rounder) have signed. Albert was inked today. Hopefully the Chiefs FO and Dorsey can get this done.

Normally I'd place blame on King Carl, but PFT noted that Dorsey's agent is notorious for waiting for the previous draft pick and the following draft pick to be signed, so that his contracts can try not to look too bad by slotting his client in between. Seems weak to me, just do your own job and get the deal done.

The Raiders signed Darren McFadden a long time ago, but I suppose Chiefs fans are now hoping that the Jets sign Vernon Gholston soon.

Amen. Get the deal done. I'd love to blame King Carl for this one (because a lot of things are / have been his fault) but I think the blame lay elsewhere this time.

Get him in camp asap. We're going to need all the help we can get.

The Jets have already signed Gholston, or at least agreed in principle.

Holdouts aren't good for young players trying to learn a new system and adjust to new game speed and strength. Remember Broderick Bunkley's rookie year? He wasn't even on the active roster for 7 games, why? He held out and wasn't prepared for the NFL. Lets hope Dorsey signs soon because if Dorsey doesn't make it in the NFL... the Chiefs look bad. Word of advice Dorsey .... SIGN.

if this turns out to be a lengthy holdout, it's the second year in a row the top pick out of LSU holds out longer than considered wise.

In all fairness though, Dorsey is one helluva player, and he was a much better prospect than Bunkley, and to be honest, I expect Dorsey to beast the NFL throughout his career.

I don't blame King Carl on this one (I Know A First) Dorsey's agent is asking for the moon with the 4th and 6th picks being done I look for things to heat up.
