"I don't worry about that," McMichael said. "That's one of those things where if I'm worried about that, I'm not focusing on football. I've got Drew Rosenhaus to worry about that."
That would be Drew Rosenhaus, as in the well-known agent who also represents Green Bay Packers wide receiver Javon Walker. Walker skipped his team's minicamp this past weekend because he's upset over his contract situation.
Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens also skipped his team's minicamp because he wants his contract redone, so the question naturally was asked: Would McMichael consider holding out to get himself a new contract?
"What, a holdout?" McMichael asked back with a stunned look on his face. "Why would I want to hold out? What does that prove? What is that going to prove to anybody, by holding out?
"I love playing this game. I don't want to be away from it. That's not even in the back of my mind at all."
