I can appreciate the optimism and flat-out desire to be apart of the organization that drafted him.
Dallas Cowboys first round draft pick Morris Claiborne vows to not be a hold-out and participate in training camp with or without a deal.
ProFootballTalk.com via The Shreveport Times is reporting that Claiborne is hell-bent on being a Cowboys and is “patiently waiting.”
Claiborne also stated after the patiently waiting comment, “You hear a lot of talk about people saying I’m holding out. No, I’m not holding out. I’m going to camp signed or not signed. It don’t matter.”
Gotta love his exuberance to want to get in and compete.
We all know from a business standpoint the Cowboys can sense he is impatient and now know he will sign sooner than later.
In previous season Claibornes insistence on getting a deal done could have led to a low ball offer from Dallas.
With the new Collective Bargaining Agreement in place Claibornes salary is already slotted so it’s now just a wait and see game.
