Most NFL training camps will be open by week's end, but five team's still need to iron out negotiations with their 2012 first round draft picks.
- Matt Kalil, Offensive Tackle, Minnesota Vikings (Open training camp July 29)
- Justin Blackmon, Wide Receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars (July 27)
- Ryan Tannehill, Quarterback, Miami Dolphins (July 28)
- Dontari Poe, Defensive Tackle, Kansas City Chiefs (July 28)
- Kendall Wright, Wide Receiver, Tennessee Titans (July 29)
- Brandon Weeden, Quarterback, Cleveland Browns (July 29)
While the collective bargaining agreement significantly dropped the price on rookie contracts and seems to have made negotiations easier for many teams, a handful of teams are still waiting until the final days to hammer out deals. In some instances, such as Justin Blackmon, it could simply be a case of the team wanting to wait until the last minute to make him a rich man, given his off the field issues. Some are also noting the potential offset language in the contracts as reason for the delay. Either way, the time is running out for these first year players to reach deals.
Do you think any of these players will miss time in training camp?
