Someone fill me in if I am missing something. Owens is threatening to hold out, although he has said he will report for camp (Rosenhaus says there is a 50/50 chance), saying that he is being underpaid based on his performance. This is where he loses me.
Owens salary puts him in the top 5 for receivers in the NFL. It is debateable that he is the best receiver in football (he wants to be the top paid receiver), but when you compare his stats with those of Marvin Harrision, Randy Moss and Torry Holt over the past few years he is comparable but does not outperform any of them.
I'm wondering why no one has pointed out the fact that he is already in the top 5 of receivers in salary when he talks about how underpaid he is based on the deal he signed last year. I just don't get it. Any thoughts?
