Priest Holmes Needs to Keep His Mouth Shut

Come on Priest. Really?

"Somebody has to get the money," he said. "Hey, if L.J. wants to leave the money out there, guess I'm going to take it. If he wants to come get it, it's rightfully his to take. He's earned it. But if he chooses not to come back, well, somebody has to take it. Why won't it be me?"
Someone needs to tell Prie$t that by ignoring his team and the city for the last two years that he's lost the right to speak publicly about our star running back's contract. You won't be the one getting Larry Johnson's money. If Prie$t has to say this kind of stuff, maybe he should have waited...oh I don't know...until he has actually practiced with the team this year instead of just running sideline sprints.

We wish you the best Prie$t Holme$. But that statement just showed the world why you decided to come back to the NFL. Stop catering to our sentimental side with your I Had a Dream speech and let your actions on the field speak for you. Like you used to do...
