NFL Trade Scenarios: Likely Asking Prices for Chris Johnson and 6 Other Holdouts

It's almost time for the NFL season to begin, but don't get too excited just yet. Now that the lockout is finally over, some players are contemplating further drama by holding out for new deals.

Today we'll look at the top players renegotiating contracts and speculate asking prices for each one if a deal cannot be reached.

Because money rules the roost in the NFL, there will always be the inevitable standoffs between greedy players and stingy franchises. Sometimes the player is being ridiculous, but other times he is completely deserving of more money.

Such is the case with Chris Johnson, who is one of the top running backs in the NFL but is grossly underpaid by the Tennessee Titans.

Needless to say, if a deal between Johnson and the Titans is somehow not reached and he is put on the trading block, interested parties would have to pay an enormous price to obtain the speedster's services.

Including Johnson, here are speculative trade values of seven NFL stars who may hold out or are currently holding out for a new contract.
