Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has now said that he wasn't at OTAs because he doesn't have a workout bonus. That should go a long way toward earning you a new contract, dummy.

If he had a workout bonus, he would have showed up. Instead, it was voluntary and no money tied to it so he stayed with his family. What an awful person. I watched the whole interview, even the "wink" was humorous.

I'm starting view reporters/bloggers in the same disdain I have for lawyers. Self serving wastes of skin.

Everyone is looking for a story. So they take a little thing and try to blow it up so they have SOMETHING to write about, so they can keep their jobs.

You're just starting to view them that way. I've been viewing them that way for 40 years or more.

That's cool and all, but put it into the greater context of him not showing up last year. Not showing interest while on the field. One thing in and of itself is no big deal, but this is becoming a pattern with him.

Dude needs to prove to us that he is not Demarious 2.0. Frankly I think he could be a 4.5 40 yard dash version of Nick Collins. Him and Jones have high ceilings. IF he decides to take an interest, he could be an all time great player, and our defense could become one for the ages.

But I'm beginning to suspect that's a pretty big IF. We shall see.

Just went through the pix I took at mini camp, and Ha Ha was there.
So at least he showed up for mini camp.

This is twisting normal implied phrases... Haha said it was about the lack of a workout bonus and wanting to spend time with family (in that order).

When saying it was about the money, normally that's implied to mean complaining about their contract, which is the opposite case here... Haha was happy that the contract didn't have a workout bonus, so he could spend more time with family.

It would have been very easy to add a workout bonus into his current contract if either side wanted it. All they had to do is simply slide some of the money he will earn this year over into a workout bonus and deduct it from this year's base.

It didn't seem to be considered important to either side.

Heck wpr I gave up on that happening 40 years ago as well and I was young (er) back then.

I think you're mistaken for two reasons

1) Because the Packers elected Haha's 5th year option, which is covered under the rookie contract, which means it's covered under the almost unbreakable CBA and can't be easily adjusted without getting the NFLPA and NFL approval... (You know, unless BOTH the player, agent and team all agreed).

2) Because you're suggesting an employee (Haha) would do MORE WORK, for the SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY... which makes no sense why Haha, his agent, or the NFLPA would agree to that. If Haha is making $6 million for the year... it doesn't make sense for him to change that to make $5 million for the year AND $1 million for OTA... it's still $6 million.

Haha wanted to stay home with family, he was happy... but you're right, the Packers could of thrown some more money at him (say 250K to 500K to try to get him to come in for OTA), but they didn't seem that worried.
