As the offseason continues to roll along, we are getting closer and closer to the day where we will finally have football once again. Training camp is a while away, but OTAs are in session and the players are on the field getting some reps in with their teammates.
Among those players are the Cardinals' first two draft choices of 2012, Michael Floyd and Jamell Fleming. Floyd was the 13th overall selection of the Cardinals in the draft and Fleming, a cornerback out of Oklahoma, was their third round pick (the team did not have a second round choice).
What is odd is that neither of these players have signed their names on the dotted line as of yet to officially become members of the Arizona Cardinals. Does that bother you?
According to Mike Sando of ESPN, only Fleming, Floyd and A.J. Jenkins (the first round choice of the 49ers) remain as unsigned rookies in the NFC West. With the new CBA rules, the slotting system has become much more clear, making it easier for teams to sign their newest young players.
We have seen players in the past wait it out until the last minute. Matt Leinart, a former first round selection of the Cards, waited until the preseason games had already begun to sign his contract. But with the new system, players already have some semblance of an idea of what they will be earning.
That is why I am personally not worried about this at all. Floyd and Fleming will both be signed in due time and will be with the team once training camp and the preseason roll around. That much I am sure of.
But what do you think? Does it make you uneasy that these players have not signed their contracts yet? Tell us in the comments section and vote in the poll.
Does it bother you that the Cardinals still haven't signed Michael Floyd or Jamell Fleming?
