Chris Clemons is one of only a few official holdouts right now, after missing the entirety of last week’s minicamp in protest of his contract. Clemons is owed 4.5 million in the final year of a 5 year deal in 2012, which makes him underpaid considering the 24 sacks, 18 quarterback hits, and 97 quarterback pressures he’s produced over the last 2 seasons.

Maybe the Vikings knew what they were doing when they opted out of giving Sidney Rice a huge contract last year when he became an unrestricted free agent.
Rice, who spent his first four seasons with the Vikings, has played all 16 games just once in his career -- his breakout 2009 season when he caught 83 passes for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns...
Rumblings from several sources concerning the Chris Clemons contract situation have not been in short supply recently.
By now, we all know Clemons is one of the team's hardest workers, posting two consecutive seasons where he notched 11 sacks. For a guy who was largely unheralded and undervalued in Philadelphia, where he played with the Eagles, those are impressive totals. We...
