    So the story posted in the thread above this one is false.

    According to that, Harris is going to play this year and report to Training Camp. He'd like a new deal sometime before or during the season. If he gets one then all is great.

    Now next year if he doesn't have a deal, he could hold out. Right now though. Don't worry so much. He'll play this year and come to TC. That's the most important things.

    Well we recieved this PM today, from someone we trust that has inside connections to the Packers:

    As I stated above, this seals it for me, Harris wants more money.

    Edit - My bad Arrow, it came out wrong. :)

    If I remember correctly:

    Harris's contract last year was 5 years @ 18.635 million. (source)

    Woodson's contract this year was 7 years @ 52 million. (source)

    However, in reality Woodson's contract has an very high bonus due before the foruth year, a bonus that won't be met by the Packers, thus making Woodson a free agent.

    Therefore, Woodson's contract is actually worth 3 years @ 18 million.

    Similarly, Harris's contract now is worth 4 years @ 9.55 million in base salary. (source)

    They should keep contracts a secret, so that players don't get ticked when someone else makes more. I don't know how much other people in my company make that have similar positions, and that is how I like it. If I knew that Joe Slouch was making 10K more than me, I would be po'd also.

    No issue, just letting the word out that Harris is indeed upset over his contract, and that is the reason he isn't at OTA's. Not the excuse he gave a couple of weeks back.

    that isnt what was said at all (in the original post you made)....

    I think you're looking at this very wrong.

    This is EXACTLY what was said a couple of weeks back. EXACTLY the same.

    yikes.

    Um, I was refering to this when Harris's agent said:

    Now, thanks to the source, we know that Harris is indeed after a raise, and not unable to attend because of personal matters. :)

    Play this season, and then give Harris a new contract next offseason. Woodson's cap number is gonna go way down next year, so you can give Harris some of that, and we will still have alot of salary space to do other things. Plus the cap will likely raise another 6 to 8 Million dollars.
