Sheldon Brown decided this was the time and place to display his contract discontent.

After verbally going public with his unhappiness about his contract situation in April, the Eagles' cornerback still showed up for the team's mandatory post-draft camp. He did not report today for the start of the Eagles' eight-day voluntary camp.

Brown, according to a Comcast report, had a meeting to air his differences with team president Joe Banner last month, but he's obviously still unhappy enough about his situation that he did not want to attend this camp.

An Eagles spokesman said Brown was the only player who did not report. Attempts to reach Brown yesterday were unsuccessful.
