    If he's already verbally consented to things that aren't part of a normal 3rd-rounder's contract, I don't blame the Cardinals for using that leverage to try to get the best deal possible for themselves.

    Why would you do weekly drug tests with no consequences? Clearly, the implication is that failing a drug test would have financial ramifications -- specifically, with regards to guaranteed money.

    Honey Badger should have never opened his mouth. He dug himself this hole.

    Lol he's verbally agreed to being a pro. That is ALL he did. He did not however say... Yes please **** me in the bum because y'all CHOSE me in the THIRD, and I have a history of problems... That's on the cards. He didnt force those fools to draft him there. Now they gonna try to do some crap that's unprecedented? No. They knew from the get that drafting him there meant certain monetary situations of a third rounder. Now they can pay the man.

    Toronto is right, Honey badger screwed himself here.

    I think he may have to hold out in order to get his everyday 3rd rounder contract.

    He is holding out Ahahahahahahahahahahaha :hugelaugh: . He was lucky to be taken at all.. the only reason teams were willing to reach so far to take him was for his potential. Personally I have no interest in a 5'8 CB, LET ALONE a 5'8 CB with attitude and drug problems.

    Cause he said he would take frequent drug tests? That was his leverage, that's asinine to think. Why take the kid if you don't intend to pay him, it is a third round contract less than a million per year, if you didn't want to pay him that don't draft him in the third it isn't a difficult concept. AZ front office is stupid.

    I would have gladly taken him with our 3rd. Guy has an innate ability to make plays, something we could use on the back end. He would have been a better nickel than Verner.

    I'd take him as a Nickle or Dime back too, but before his drug bust people were talking about him being a top 5 or 10 pick. I just don't see it.. you can't stick a 5'8 dude on the outside and expect good things to happen.. dude would get thrown over and dominated by the NFL elites easily.

    Agreed that would be way too early but a third for a playmaking nickel who brings attitude and return ability, absolutely. Robert Alford is about the same size and went round 2 to ATL and he will be a nickel.
