To date, no first-round draft choice has reached agreement on a new deal. And while we should start hearing about some contracts for some first-rounders next week, deals for the top choices are expected to trickle in this summer. The biggest reason is that, due to the current collective bargaining agreement, and the lack of a new one, this year's rookie contracts cannot be any longer than five years. Now, instead of cramming the signing bonus into the six-year contracts that first-round picks signed last year, and the seven-year contracts they signed the year before, now they must be squeezed into five years. This complicates negotiations. Now players, agents and teams are expecting deals that have lower signing bonuses and larger option bonus payments, to try to give the players the money they want and the teams the salary-cap relief they crave. But many around the league are bracing for plenty of holdouts from first-round picks.

May have something to do with him pimping information that's already been posted 100 times over again.
