The Colts took Iowa safety Bob Sanders with their first pick, No. 44 overall. That was more than four months ago. He still hasn't signed. Neither side wants to play this out in the media (unlike the Rivers and Winslow negotiations), so it's impossible to say who's being more unreasonable. But in any event, it's very bizarre for a second-rounder to continue a holdout for this long.
The Panthers need tackles, the Saints need pass-rushers, the Bucs need a safety, while the conference champs need help on... offense?
