    He’s still under contract for two more years with the Vikings. Once his contract is up, they could franchise him if they so choose, so if the Vikings wanted to make him honor his contract, he’s locked up for 3 years minimum.
    Under the new CBA any player under contract that refuses to report to training camp it’s going to cost him $30k per day. Considering Percy’s contract is only $915k this year, I doubt he’s going to be holding out for very long.
    If he decides to hold out next year, his option year, not only will he lose $30k per day that he doesn’t report to camp, but he will lose the equivalent of a game check for each preseason game that he misses as well.
    Percy deserves more money than he is currently getting, no doubt about it. But his hand isn’t very strong in the negotiations. Especially with a team that is in rebuilding mode.
