Two of the biggest named players in the NFL are holding out until they get new contracts.

The Pittsburg Steelers and star wide out Mike Wallace are having a break from each other as Wallace who is a restricted free agent didn’t report to yesterdays training camp and doesn’t intended to until the two sides have reached an agreement. It doesn’t seem to be getting better either as sources told ESPN that the talk between the two sides was minimal in the last few days, although the Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin have both said the intentions are to sign him to a long term contract. Wallace lead the Steelers in receiving TD’s, yards , and caught passes last season.

Among the newest of the hold outs is Jacksonville Jaguars Running Back Maurice Jones-Drew. Jones who is not a restricted free agent still has two years left on his contract which is worth about 9 million. Jaguars owner Shad Khan says he has no intentions of giving Jones a new contract as of right now.

The difference between the two players is that Wallace cannot get fined because he isn’t under contract while Jones can get fined a maximum of 30,000 dollars a day for every he doesn’t report to camp.
