Criner not signing contract over $14,000

Rookie wide receiver Juron Criner and the Raiders are $14,000 apart on the signing bonus portion of his contract, according to an ESPN report. Not a lot of money but apparently enough to keep Criner away from training camp in Napa.
The report said the Raiders are offering Criner a $144,000 signing bonus, which is in line with where he was drafted in April. However, Criner’s camp is pushing for $158,000, or $2,000 less than the player picked right before Criner. Such a drop in bonus money is the norm for players picked in the fifth round. Yet, the NFL Management Council calls for players taken with compensatory selections to drop more than the norm.
Criner is the only player on the Raiders roster not under contract. They already have signed five of their six draftees. The first practice is Monday.
The ESPN report cited the source as saying Criner “likely” won’t sign a contract until the matter is resolved.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen isn’t available to the media until Sunday afternoon. Criner could not be reached for comment.

    The 26-year-old rookie OG isn’t publicly threatening to hold out unless he gets more money than the slotting system allows for.

    wonder if reggie sees this a some kind of negotiation manipulation or speculation for compensation. either way, bowel irritation and butt crack sanitation are good reasons for contemplation.

    You stated earlier HE publically threated… Who is the source? Is it criber, agent, ice cream man????

    I bet bush was thinking the bears wouldnt resign forte and he would get to be the man. HA see how that worked for him now your stuck in frigid chi town as a back up i dont about yall but i would have stayed in cali behind mcfragile.

  • Twocents

    Peter Schaffer is Criners agent. He is also an advisor to the NFLPA. Sounds like he’s testing McKenzie, hoping he’ll fold and weaken the new rules. I think he picked the wrong guy.

    If Criner signed in May like the other two 5th round supp picks, and put his 144K in a simple Index fund in the stock market, he damn near would have made the 14K already, lol.
    $$$$$$$$

    Index fund offers a 10% return in 2 months? Hook me up brother!
    LOL

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Criner’s agent: I’m advising you not to accept the Raider offer. They need to up it by 14k.

    Juron: OK, but what do we do in the meantime ?

    Agent-Ahole: We sit out til they pony up.

    Juron: But won’t I miss camp ?

    Agent-Ahole: Yeah, but they need you and will come to their senses.

    Juron: Where’s my source of income right now ?

    Agent-Ahole: Don’t worry about it. I’ll give you a low interest advance.

    Juron: And this is all over 14k ?

    Agent-Ahole: Yep.

    Juron (if he’s smart) Well, Fk that noise, and Fk you too. You’re fired.

    Criner and/or his agent are threatening (via the media) to hold out because he thinks the slotting system applies to everyone but him. Sounds pretty “Diva” to me.

    Depending on when you cherry-pick your price in May, the Dow or S & P are up close to 7-8% as we sit today.

    2c-it is an obvious attempt to weaken and circumvent the new CBA.You’d have thought the NFLPA could have chosen a higher profile guy to try it.

    He won’t be doing ANY of that if he doesn’t come to his senses and sign the deal.

  • Lando Calzone

    Hold outs are not in the players best interest, only the agents. Don’t blame Criner. Just like JaRussell when he held out, not his fault but the agent. And look how bad it hurt Russell. He never overcame the time he missed cuz of the holdout. Was always a step behind.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    144k in the hand is worth a lot more than 158k in the bush.

    Come on Juron, fire that scumbag agent of yours and play football.

  • lefty12

    The agent works FOR the player,not the other way around.There isn’t a lot of negotiations for rookies with the new agreement.Their pay and signing bonuses are essentially set.He could tell his agent to sign and perhaps that will happen before practices start.BTW,they report today,attend classes(meetings) tomorrow, and hit the field Monday.

    One idiot calls Criner a Diva, and You People assume he is one.
    The man is trying to get an additional 10%, it’s not like he is asking for 2nd round money, and that makes him a diva?
    ================================================

    Raider HO you are not much on thinking are you? There are 12 count them, 12 players in the ENTIRE DRAFT that are currently unsigned. One is a third rounder the rest are all lst and 2nd rounders. Then there is a 6th rounder. Criner. You can’t even really call him a 5th rounder because the 5th round came and went and he wasn’t taken. Why don’t you encourage him to hold out for lst rounder money since basically the ones left.

  • TxRaider210

    Criner isn’t entitled to schit, other guys signed for the same and are probably happy to play a game for a living.

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    Shrug. If he signs he will have proven that he is no longer a diva or prima donna.

  • Marks hair

    if pick 1 gets 3 dollars and pick 3 get 1 dollar then our hypothetical pick 2 criner should get 2 dollars.. He shouldnt get paid 1 dollar just because pick 2 is compensatory.. Pay him his slot. Its only another 14k…

  • TxRaider210

    By the news rules, it’s not his slot and Reg made the right offer.
