View Full Version : Be wary of Priest Holmes

This is my first fantasy forum post, but hopefully it will help some of you guys out. No way is Peterson going to give him a new contract before the end of the preseason, if at all, so if you have an early draft take Priest at your own risk-

"Wrapping himself in his new charity endeavor, "Team Priest," and talk of starting a Kansas City Chiefs football dynasty, Prie$t announced that he would sit out the Sept. 7 season opener if Peterson didn't give him a fat signing bonus and a new contract or extension.

The injured hip has forced Prie$t to resort to Peterson-like tactics of deception. Early during the off-season he misled the media, said his rehab was going great and that he was healthy. On Wednesday he admitted that his hip was "bad" and that he experienced significant pain during the first three months of his original rehabilitation.

Now, he says, after having surgery in March, his rehab is going smoothly, and he'll be ready for the start of the season. But he'll only start the season if Peterson and Lamar Hunt are willing to pay up, and they need to pay up so Prie$t can implement all of his Team Priest charity ideas."
