Ok, just to spark some discussion here, along with rookies that are coming into this league with a contract that pays them alot of money, do you think that it's fair that rookies who haven't shown a thing on the NFL, to get paid more than a veteran who been here for say 7 years and has proven what he can do? Do you feel that system works? If you don't, then how can you improve the system?

Make a maximum. Try 25 K Contract.

And rookie incentives.

no i don't think they deserve the contracts they are getting. it is totally getting out of control. big contracts like that should be earned.

If I understand your question, I don't know the answer.

But I do know that it differs greatly from any other Union job.

I would love to see a rookie salary cap like the NBA. And I would be nice to see these people actually earn their pay check coughSimsCough. How long after the rooks in the NBA are drafted before they are signed. Not long. Then we could end this hold out bullcrap. coughleinhartcough
